Remove source after execution
on Aug 9, 2019 at 2:43:26 pm

I have my script to import the first item from my folder.
Once it has been imported another portion from the script is executed, after exporting, I want it to then remove the file from the folder.

var myImportOptions = new ImportOptions();
var myFolder = Folder("Folder path");
var myFiles = myFolder.getFiles();

myImportOptions.file = myFiles[0];
app.project.importFile(myImportOptions);


some forums suggest below, but it's not removing my file.

myFiles[0].remove()

Any suggestions?

This was my issue



I forgot to check this box.

Because I use alerts to flag errors I only came about this, when I removed the alert and it finally told me I needed to check this box.
