I used your code from “Creator_ShopR_1.1” and “x-commands” to composite this script but i get an “the application is not runing error” any ideas

to anyone else I am trying to generate a lil script to create icons for a folder of items dragged on to it
-thx :smiley:

Sorry it’s taken me a bit to get back to you on this one!

I’ve downloaded David’s spiffy X-commands and run some tests on your code…

It works like a champ here! Are you sure you have the curren version of X-commands? (0.9.5)

One thing to note: X-commands is actually an invisible background app, not a traditional “scripting addition”. So, you’ll need to actually launch it before testing your code. Post again with further details if you’re still stuck.
