The Script Management dialog shows you all your installed script add-ins. You can create new scripts or manage your existing ones from here.

To get to the Script Management dialog, use the Scripts command in the default Settings menu. If you're using old toolbars without that command in them, you can add it from the Customize / Default Toolbars tab. The raw command is Prefs SCRIPTS.

Script list

Your installed scripts are shown in the list, with a number of columns:

  • Name: The name of the script (set by the script itself). You can disable a script using the checkbox in front of its name.

    If a script has configuration options, it will be indicated with a cog icon - you can click this icon or use the Configure button in the toolbar to edit the configuration.

  • Status: Indicates whether the script has loaded successfully or if it encountered an error.
  • Version: The version number of the script (set by the script itself).
  • File: The name of the file the script is implemented by.

Scripts can specify a group as part of their initialisation - if any scripts have done this, the script list will be split into two or more groups.

By default include file scripts are also shown in the list, but you can hide them with the command in the File menu.

Installing a new script

The easiest way to install a new script is with the File > Install command (or click the Install button on the toolbar).

The script installer will open to guide you through the install process. You can install single script files (e.g. .js or .js.txt), script packages (.osp files) and script install files (.opusscriptinstall files) this way.

Creating a new script

Click the New button to create a new script. The Create New Script dialog opens.

Script management

Select a script from the list to see information about it at the bottom of the dialog.

You can right-click a script, or use the Script drop-down menu, to manage the selected script. Some of these functions are also available on the toolbar itself.

  • Enable / Disable: Lets you enable or disable the script. Same effect as clicking the checkbox in front of its name.
  • About: Shows information about the script (if the script provides it).
  • Configure: Configures the script parameters (if the script has any).
  • Edit: Opens the script editor to edit the script.
  • Convert to Package: Converts a standalone script file to a script package.
  • Share: Converts the script to a script install file to share with other Opus 13 users.
  • Delete: Deletes the selected script.
