Folder Action created in Automator does not work

The issue is connected with SIP (System Integrity Protection) security technology. If you want to use Folder Actions for FineReader Pro, you can try to disable SIP as described below:

  1. Turn off your Mac (Apple > Shut Down).
  2. Hold down Command-R and press the Power button. Keep holding Command-R until the Apple logo appears.
  3. Wait for OS X to boot into the OS X Utilities window.
  4. Choose Utilities > Terminal.
  5. Enter csrutil disable.
  6. Enter reboot.

Your Mac will reboot and start up with SIP disabled.

To enable SIP proceed the steps 1-4 above again and at the step 5 enter csrutil enable.
