One important feature I as a newbie to applescripting cannot figure out is how to get a script to work on text that is simply highlighted in a program (i.e., not yet copied to the clipboard or the like). (I’m specifically interested in being able to run a script based on some text highlighted on a contact in Entourage.)
Does the implementation of this vary from program to program? Where in the dictionary would this information be anyways?
thanks in advance,
