applescript and keyboard shortcut for using keka

Post by zero7404 » Wed Feb 26, 2020 1:50 am

hello,

i would like to make an automator app or workflow that does the following:

get a specific folder
copy the folder somewhere else
invoke the keyboard shortcut to compress the copied folder using keka: command+control+shift+k

i have tried multiple ways to arrange a workflow or applescript like this:

Code: Select all

tell application "Finder"
   activate
end tell

tell application "System Events"
   keystroke "c" using {command down, control down, shift down}
end tell
the keyboard shortcut "command+control+shift+c" is something i assigned myself to the "Compress using Keka" item in System Preferences. This item is located in Keyboard-->Services section.

i'd greatly appreciate some help with getting keka to compress the folder i want using a script or a workflow, so that I can automate a bunch of folder archives.
