hello --

 

in principle it should be rather easy, but i think i am missing something. all i want to do is this:

 

1.) Get Selected Finder Items

2.) foreach Folder create archive with same name and same location

 

i can't find a way to tell automator to use each selected folder instead of all of them as input for the create archive function. any suggestions how i can do that would be much appreciated.

 

thank you in advance.

 

p.
