Hi, It is finally time to crank out the writing project. After reviewing several ideas I decided that it makes sense to open 3 Word documents at the same time. One for the writing, one for notes and one for character development.
Naturally I want the windows to open in the same location but until I get the script to run, that will be a secondary question. I can’t get the following script to run. It has been saved as an application. I am told the resource forks are not set up the same with current AppleScripts as before and because of this you have to use your scripts under Panther as applications.
I will also mention that I don’t know very much about AppleScript or changing recourse forks. But I think I know enough about using AS that the following should work. When I start this in Panther, it launched Word but opens no documents. Also it starts Classic but Classic seems to hang. I have tried starting Classic before the script and classic still seems to hang when the script is triggered.
I was thinking this should be quick and easy to do. Just open three files. But I can’t do it. I would appreciate anyones help with this.
Word is Word 98 (Classic application)
10.3 is my OS
script editor is version 2.0
tell application “Microsoft Word”
open "JupiterX:Users:davegroover:Writing Project:BOOK ONE" open "JupiterX:Users:davegroover:Writing Project:BOOK ONE's Notes" open "JupiterX:Users:davegroover:Writing Project:BOOK ONE's Characters"
