Call with Skype on longer working

Postby adrianobj » Wed Dec 06, 2017 9:12 am

With the newest version of Skype the 'Call with Skype' action no longer does anything.

The most recent version of Skype (8.x) doesn’t support Applescript. Also, the macOS version can’t send text messages, so I downgraded to the previous 7.x version and the world smiled again.

However, with today’s macOS High Sierra update, I have the same problem as the OP: “Call with Skype” initiated from LB only switches to Skype and doesn’t do anything more.

LB 6.9.3, Skype 7.5937, macOS 10.13.2

This is a serious issue and nobody seems to notice. I have the same problem with Bria 5, as mentioned above https://forums.obdev.at/viewtopic.php?f=24&t=11172.

Obviously the implementation of "handle_string" is broken in High Sierra. Anybody with a fix or workaround?

LB version 6.9.4 was released earlier today:
Fixed various scripts that deal with phone numbers not working on macOS 10.13.2. This includes actions like "Call with iPhone", "Call with Skype", "Call with FaceTime", and "Send iMessage"

Great news! However, I’m still reluctant to upgrade to Skype 8.x.
