Flash a graphic right before script runs

I have a script that runs through a QuarkXP text box, cleans up extra blank paragraphs, double spaces, multiple tabs, etc.

Wondering if it would be possible to have a graphic display in a dialog, or would that involve using Applescript Studio?


If you save your script from Script Editor as an application and check the box “with startup screen” your script will show a startup screen that says “Press Run to run this script, or Quit to quit”. If you give this saved script application a custom icon, this icon will appear in that dialog box.

Applescript studio is probably going to do what you want with the most control.
