Command Window Tools






Access this tool from the Book palette, Properties & Scripts palette, or from a custom palette or custom menu that you have configured with the Command Window Tools tool.


This tool allows you to save your valuable Command Window scripts and easily reuse them in other books and in later sessions.


The file that stores the scripts is shown at the top of the dialog box. You can keep the default, make a new file, or delete the current one from the list. If you have more than one file of scripts, you can select the desired one from the drop-down box.


To add a script for the first time, you can copy the current contents of the Command Window by clicking the "New From Command Window" button. Or you can compose in this edit after clicking the "New" button. If you want to delete the selected script, you can click the "Delete" button.


When you select or create a new script, you can edits its title, description, and script at the bottom of the screen. If you want to insert tabs in your script, use Ctrl + Tab (since Tab on its own will move to the next element in the dialog box).


If you have edited a script, title, or description, click the "Update Selected Script" button.


To copy the selected script to the Command Window, click the "Copy To Command Window" button. You can then just press enter in the Command Window or click the "Run From Command Window" button.


Note: you can collapse this dialog by clicking on the collapse graphic (Generate/collapseBtn.gif) at the top of the screen and then expand it again by clicking the expand graphic (Generate/expandBtn.gif).
