Set theSelection to selection works with AppleScript


tell application “Contacts”

set theSelection to selection

end tell

Script Debugger reports: Contacts got an error: An error of type -1743 has occurred.

(Mark Alldritt) #2

Somewhere along the way you declined to give Script Debugger permission to control the Contacts application.

To correct this, you have to goto Security & privacy pane of the System Preferences application and give Script Debugger permission to automate Contacts.


Thanks Mark, that fixed it.
