Got an error message when importing selected texts from pdf/web/etc


I just got this error every time I try to import selected texts from pdf or webpage. Here is the message “EagleFiler encountered an AppleScript error while trying to capture from Preview. error -2147450879 (line )”

Can anyone help me with this? I just recently installed this app and thought that it might be helpful for my research, gathering info from webpage, pdf, and other file types.

Thanks so much,


That error means that the AppleScript framework on your Mac is damaged, and you need to reinstall macOS.

I also wanted to mention that the capture key is for importing whole files/documents/messages. To import the selected text from a Web page or PDF, you can use drag and drop or the EagleFiler: Import service.

Dear Michael,

Thanks so much for your email.
