Q&A

Q1: Does AppleScript replace macro products like QuicKeys?
A1: The QuicKeys macro tool is actually a great complement to AppleScript. It enables you to control applications that aren’t normally scriptable—filling a niche.
Q2: If a command isn’t included in an application’s dictionary, what do I do?
A2: Contact the developer. Unfortunately, you have access only to what the programmer wants you to have and nothing more.
Q3: What is a good approach to learning AppleScript syntax?
A3: Look through the sample scripts in /Library/Scripts and try editing them by using the rules you learned in this hour. I’ve found that the best way to understand AppleScript is to see it in action and to play with it.
