I have some RTF formatted text on the clipboard, and I want to now automate putting that into Pages. Basically what I want is, at the current insertion point in Pages:

  • Insert a text box and set the background color to Mercury
  • Paste the text into that box
  • Replace all paragraph breaks with line breaks (\n to \i basically)
  • Set the background color of all the text to Mercury (it's currently forcing to white when I paste)
  • Make the text box the full width of the margins of the page.

Is that possible?

Hello and welcome.

I am not very experienced with Automator and AppleScript. Maybe the folks over at MacScripter could lend some direction.
