Copy File URL

Summary: Copies file:// URLs for the selected records to the clipboard.
Requires: EagleFiler
Install Location: ~/Library/Scripts/Applications/EagleFiler/
Last Modified: 2014-08-02


This can be used, e.g, for pasting into a calendar program. Clicking a file:// link will open the file as if it were double-clicked in the Finder. The Copy Record Link command, in contrast, copies an x-eaglefiler:// link that will open the file in EagleFiler.
