A collection of AppleScripts for use with Capture One.

Script Compatability Shortcut
ApplyKeywords 10+ ⇧⌘K
makeNewDir 9+ ⌃n
makeNewDirNoCapture 9+ ⌃⇧n
selectNextCapture 9 ⌃↑
selectPreviousCapture 9 ⌃↓


Run install.sh, which will copy the scripts to ~/Library/Scripts/Capture One Scripts and set up the keyboard shortcuts.

The script defaults to adding shortcuts for Capture One 11. MacOS might not show the shortcuts in System Preferences.

The Scripts


Apply keywords from the clipboard to all variants in the current collection.

Each line of text in the clipboard is applied as a separate keyword. The keywords are added to the whatever the current keywords are.

If you need to remove all keywords, use "Reset Keywords", which will remove all keywords from every variant in the current collection.

MakeNewDir / MakeNewDirNoCapture

Creates new directories inside of the Capture directory and sets the capture directory.

When running the script you'll be prompted for a new directory name. The prompt will repeat allowing going back to FileMaker or a spreadsheet, enter an empty string to end the loop.

New directories are created adjacent to the current capture directory, unless the capture directory is "Capture", in which case new folders are made inside.

If the boolean in addFavorites(_:_:) is true then the capture directory will be set to the first directory name entered.

Select Next/ Previous Capture

Moves the capture directory up or down the list of favorites relative to the current capture directory.

Note: Due to a change in how Capture One returns favorites in 10+ this script only works in Capture One 9.
