Quickbooks for Mac 2010 Time Activity Bug

October 28th, 2009 No comments

I’ve run into a bug which is discussed here.  In summary, after entering a single time activity, hitting “next” or “previous” causes problems.

With the following Applescript, when you’re finished entering a time activity, you hit ctrl+n (or whatever shortcut you choose), and voilà:

  • you have a saved entry
  • a new blank form
  • you can scroll to previous and next to your heart’s content!

That is – it works the way it’s supposed to, lol

Here’s the code:

tell application “System Events”

tell process “QuickBooks 2010″

click button “OK” of window “Enter Single Activity”

perform action “AXPress” of menu item “Enter Single Activity” of menu 1 of menu item “Time Tracking” of menu 1 of menu bar item “Employees” of menu bar 1

end tell

end tell

Here’s what you do:

  1. Paste the above script into AppleScript Editor
  2. Save the file (as a script) to: /[your user folder here]/Library/Scripts/Applications/QuickBooks/Save time activity and create new.scpt
  3. If you have an script menu app (FastScripts is the absolute best!), you can assign a shortcut to it, like ctrl+n)

PersonalBrain and VoodooPad

October 27th, 2009 No comments

I created an Applescript in response to the PersonalBrain Forums, which launches a VoodooPad page from the current active thought in PersonalBrain:

– Copy name of active thought

tell application “PersonalBrain” to activate

set old_clipboard to the clipboard

set the clipboard to “”

repeat while (the clipboard) is “”

tell application “System Events”

tell process “PersonalBrain”

perform action “AXPress” of menu item “Copy as Text” of menu 1 of menu bar item “Edit” of menu bar 1

end tell

end tell

end repeat

– Strip trailing newline

set active_thought_name to (characters 1 thru -2 of (get the clipboard)) as string

– If page does not exist in VoodooPad, create it

– Open page in VoodooPad

tell application “VoodooPad”

activate

tell document 1

open page with name active_thought_name

end tell

end tell

set the clipboard to old_clipboard
