Open Finder Selection in Specific Application

Recently on the Keyboard Maestro User Group someone asked how to open the finder selection in a specific application. Keyboard Maestro does not have a direct action for this, but you can easily add an Execute AppleScript text action to do this. Here is a simple script to do this.

tell application "Finder" to set finderfiles to selection as list
set finderaliases to {}
repeat with i in finderfiles
    set a to i as alias
    set finderaliases to finderaliases & a
end repeat
tell application "BBEdit"
    open finderaliases
end tell
