Sample text

Some applications provide special folders, usually called Scripts, to place your scripts in so they will appear in that application’s special Script menu. More and more software vendors realize that providing a special menu for scripts in their applications, or at least placing some scripts in a /Library/Scripts folder (which will appear in the operating system’s Scripts menu), is more than just letting users create their own scripts; it also allows them to quickly add “features” to their applications that otherwise would take timely programming resources.

Getting the script’s text allows the other person to open the text version of the script in Script Editor and compile it on the Mac on which the script will eventually run. This helps iron out issues that may stem from using a slightly different version of an application and gives the script a chance to see where all the applications are located on the new Mac. Another format-related option you have is to save a run-only version of the script. This will allow the script to run, but no one will be able to read it.
