    What is it?
    The folders from text list widget allows Capture One users to do bulk Capture folder creation from a single text file.

    What does it do?
    The app will:

  • Take each new line in the text file -> name of a folder
  • Make the folder inside the current Capture folder
  • Add the folder to favorites area
  • Irrespective if you like naming things with “.” as part of your naming, or if you include something by mistake – there are certain characters which are defined by Apple as illegal or ill-advised if encountered in certain combinations in folder names. In these cases the app will substitute illegals for “_” (underscore) for the sake of stability.
  • Who is it for?
    Any digi or user with a workflow where you might have a shot list that needs converting to Capture folders quickly and without loosing the will to live.

    How do I use it?
    Once installed from the dmg, either click-to-run and pick the text file, or drag drop the text file on to the app.


    Install notes

    Run the .dmg and drag drop the app to applications

    Once installed to applications, I recommend referencing the install in the dock for easy access. Drag the app from applications to the dock to do this. You can also install it to Capture One’s scripts menu as per the article here – but be sure to copy the installed application reference – not the .dmg.

    After running the .dmg and installing, on first run you will see this dialog warning that this is a script file and needs to interact with another app/s to work. These are normal for script applets. The app is otherwise code signed and stapled in accordance with Apple guidelines. Press OK for any dialogs encountered.


    Using the app

    1. running the app will give you the chance to pick a .txt or .text file.

    2. You can also drag drop the .txt or .text file onto the application.

    3. Each line of text is passed as a new folder and added to Capture One. Note in this grab how the illegal characters are handled.
