Hi! Just as an FYI, I use this script frequently (it's so helpful, thank you for creating it!), but I recently upgraded to Mojave and it stopped working for a bit when I did.

I got this error: Not authorized to send Apple events to Finder. (-1743)
which led me to this thread: macOS Mojave, Automator “Not authorized to send Apple events to System Events.”

Following the thread seems to have resolved my errors.
