Sorry - I overstated, or didn't quite say what I meant. Entourage, for
example, can run schedules At Startup, and the action of a schedule can be
to run a script. So this would do exactly what mellanie wants in that app.
(I believe FCP is notoriously completely unscriptable, so it would never
have anything like this, but other apps could.) I meant more that there were
few apps where the facility for triggering a script automatically by another
action - other than specifically running one from a script menu - is very
rare. The Startup folder in BBEdit you mention would certainly fit the bill.
Do not post admin requests to the list. They will be ignored.
