The dialog no longer appears with focus in Yosemite and you have to click on it before you can type. Searching on stack exchange and

问题 I would like to write an AppleScript that would allow me to launch iTunes with a given Library instead of having to hold down the Option key and browsing for one.

I've had a similar issue in the past, and found a site that said the way to fix it was to find all blank characters, and replace them with a space.
