You have to follow the instructions exactly which includes being in the right application when you do some things that would appear to work in any application :)

If you are in OmniFocus as the frontmost application (menu bar will say OmniFocus, not Finder or Safari or whatever), then when you do the Open Scripts Folder from the Scripts menu, it will create that folder for you automatically if it did not exist.
 
OK got the folder opened but got stuck with errors in the script. Can't save it to put the resulting file into that folder

Getting frustrated here

Sounds like either part of the script is missing or has new lines in the wrong place (a problem arising in pasting it into the editor), or it is for OF 1.8 and it is being run on an earlier version.

Best to separate issues of installation from those of script correctness, so lets continue this from your thread in the main OmniFocus forum.
 
Added a section to the FAQ (first post in this thread) on choosing an icon for a script.

This is super. It worked perfectly and made OO as perfectly usable as I needed it to be! My aging eyes thank you.

The OmniOutliner font size toggle script ?

Good :-)

(My eyes need it too)
 
Here's a script that will move a selected file to the OmniFocus script folder:

I've read thru this thread and tried all the suggestions, but i still can't get it to work. I am very new to Mac but pretty familiar with PC....maybe that's my problem.

Anyway, i keep getting this error: error "File Untitled:Users:Mike:Library:Scripts:Applications:O mniFocus wasn’t found." number -43 from "Untitled:Users:Mike:Library:Scripts:Applications: OmniFocus"

I've looked and looked and i do NOT have the same file structure as what's listed above so i can't create the new folder. I am running Lion 10.7.3 ...... do the scripts and folder hierarchy the same on Lion as others?

Please help...thanks in advance.

UPDATE: I think i figured it out but not sure how really....thanks.

If you've never put a script in that folder the folder doesn't exist yet.

Modified the script to create the folder before trying to put a file in it.

I wonder if Apple's eccentric (and frankly rather unhelpful) decision to hide the user's library folder (~/Library) in Lion is causing grief here.

The way to fix this 'helpful' cosmetic change is to open Terminal.app and enter the line:
chflags nohidden ~/Library
There is more discussion in a Tidbits article here.
