AppleScript: add the ability to make a folder

Post by scrutinizer »

I created the identical issue on GitHub but got no reaction, so am posting an abridged version here.

On trying to make a folder via the standard command AppleScript raises the error -10000 AppleScript handler failed,

Code: Select all

tell application "Vienna" to make new folder with properties {name:"Some_name"}
I run an unsupported version 3.5.9 on OS X 10.9. If you consider this enhancement could you release one last update for older OS X just to give us the opportunity to enjoy it? I think that the newest releases would benefit from that too.

Many things need to be improved on Vienna's AppleScript support.

A lot of functions advertised in the vocabulary do not work. It's worth working on this, but as for myself, I don't have time to spend on this in the near future.

I am afraid it will be difficult to backport functional changes like this to older versions.
