Title: Move file on first file change
Post by eivl on Jun 11th, 2014 at 12:47pm
Hello, i want to move a file after it has been changed one time/saved first time.

Only problem is that it get triggered on file create also, i do not want this to happen, any way around it?

It all depends a bit how the program creating/modifying the file works... Some do several rename steps instead of saving directly to a file.

First try the easy method...
On the "Events" window, do not select FILENEW, only select FILECHNG.
