I run into scenarios where I want to compile a list of URLs in a text file. Then I want to use Apple Automator to view each one of those URLs in a separate tab in a browser. My MAC is OSX 10.9.4, Automator V2.4. I can use
Get Specified URLs > Display Web Pages
but I have to cut and paste the URLs into Get Specified URLs. I want to read the URLs from a text file. I saw some posts that say to use "Get Specified Finder Items" > "Combine Text Files" > "Filter Paragraphs" but this does not work either. The flow I am trying is
Get Specified Finder Items > Combine Text Files > Filter Paragraphs > Get Specified URLs > Display Web Pages
When I run this work flow I see Filter Paragraphs outputs the list of URLs but with parens around them
I see the output of Get Specified URLs is empty which causes the error "The action Display Webpages was not supplied the required data".
Any help is appreciated
