Hazel Rules – Seamwork Magazine

I have subscribed to Seamwork Magazine since the beginning, but it wasn’t until yesterday I got fed up enough with downloading and renaming the various files each issue is comprised of to actually do something about it.

I made a couple of Hazel rules (in order. This is important!) in my Downloads watched folder, I’m sure I’ve either done it “wrong” or in a terribly clunky way, but it works and that will do for now.

So now all I have to do is download the magazine PDF or pattern zip file in question to my downloads folder and they are automagically unzipped, renamed, tagged and moved to the correct locations and any leftover folders are deleted.

I replaced as follows (quotes not included, merely to show spaces etc.):

“seamwork-” with “Seamwork ”

“-all-1127” with “ all”

“-content-1127” with “ content”

“-instructions-1127” with “ instructions”

“-wide-1127” with “ wide”

“-“ with “ – “

I also checked Title Case.
