There is a 'loop' action in the Utilities section. You can loop indefinitely, a preset number of times, or for a set duration.
To run a multiple actions in your loop, save the workflow as a standalone action and add a 'Run Workflow' action to your loop.Mac OS X (10.6.5)
okay well I added a loop from the utilities and the drop down bar said minutes or times so i set it for 1000 mins since i will only be useing it for around 7 hours so thats surely enough. But it only loops the actions once and then it does nothing but the automator says it's still running. How do i get it to repeat the actions for the full duration repeatedly?iMac 24", Mac OS X (10.5.5)
What are you looping through? Images? Are the files big?
Have the problem with Automator is that if the files are really big, then it won't acutally process all of them before moving onto the next action in the workflow.
To handle this there is a 3rd party action called "Wait for Finder Items". Place this right after the retrieval of the file.
