Free script that will easily open PDF files from the current Camino URL
Version: 1.0View PDF File is a free Camino AppleScript that will allow you to download the PDF file at the URL on the clipboard, open it in its default application, and then expeditiously move it to the trash.
Operating System: Mac OS X
This is useful for viewing PDF files "temporarily" — the PDF will open in Preview but the file will not be saved anywhere (unless you never empty the trash).
To get the URL of a PDF on the clipboard, right-click on a link to the PDF and choose "Copy Link Location" from the contextual menu. (The script will act on any URL copied to the clipboard, whether it points to a PDF or some other kind of file.
If the URL is for an image, say if you choose "Copy Image Location" from the contextual menu, the download will be opened in your default image viewing/editing application, before getting trashed.)
INSTALLATION: Unzip and copy the script to the path ~/Library/Scripts/Applications/Camino/, where the tilde (~) represents your home folder, creating any subfolders that don't already exist. The script will appear under a "Camino Scripts" heading in your system-wide Script menu when Camino is the frontmost application. In Camino 1.6 or later, the script can be placed on the Camino toolbar by draggig it from the "Customize Toolbar" drop-down sheet.
