Emailing file when it is opened in an application

Post by thewelshman » Sat Jan 30, 2016 10:38 pm

I am using 6.5 on Mac OS El Capitan

I need to keep receipts for business expenses.

I scan the receipt with Vue Scan, then open it in Preview to check.

While the file is open in Preview I would like to be able to email it to my account.

At the moment I have to close the file, select it and then email.

Is there a way to email a file open in an application?

Many thanks

Welshie.

Personally I wouldn't even use LaunchBar for this action-send the document using the share button in Preview's toolbar.

Greg,

Thanks for the reply.

Currently I do use the share button in Preview and do by using the mouse to move the cursor to the button etc.

I'm trying to get a keyboard workflow if possible and I can't find an OS X shortcut that does this action—hence looking at a Launchbar route.

I don't know anything about automator but I have feeling it could provide an answer....
