Symbolic Link Service

Script CreamAutomator sorts services.

One of the things that makes me have to fire up the Terminal for in Mac OS X is to create symbolic links. In Snow Leopard though, it is possible to use Automator to create a Service so I can create the links using a contextual menu in the Finder.

Feel free to download the Automator service here.  Once downloaded, open it in Automator, then “Save as” to save it in your Services folder (which is in your home folder Library/Services).

    Thank you. For some reason SymbolicLinker.service broke recently on several machines, perhaps with 10.6.5. Your workflow works perfectly for my need for SL re Dropbox.
