Two new Scripts

Here they are... Say "Hello" to:

Align Text Field To Center (Or to whatever you set it to)
Join Text Frames, the converse of my "divide text frames" script.

I'll let them speak for themselves.

They both make my life easier. I hope they are as good for you.

New JS4AI Page

This weekend I finally automated my JS4AI page, and just to be clear, I coded the page using Perl, not PERL.

Thanks to the magic of web scripting, my JavaScripts write themselves...

Well, OK not really, but at least the page updates itself.

I now have a nice uniform facade to show the world, and a faster way to update my stuff.

I think I'll write something new to celebrate. :)
Stay tuned!

Bonjour From France

I got my first script related email from France today. I had to use Babelfish to translate it, but I was able to understand and respond in kind. Problems with CMYKtoPMS... No surprise there... I wrote a few suggestions, and hopefully babelfish was as good at translating my English back to French. :)
No real script news. Just kinda cool to get letters from folks that don't speak English... :)

Scripting is fun

I got an email from Aubanel MONNIER of Esterel Technologies who asked my permission to host a new "Stick to CMYK Palette" script which he modified from my "Randomize Colors" script.

He asked about my copyright arrangement, and it made me think a bit more about it. I do this for fun, but have been a bit lax about uniformity. I think in the near future I will create a template for the top of all my scripts, and then use PERL (I mean Perl... ) to extract it for display on my main JS4AI page.

It was cool to get another email about a script though.
I love to see what other people do with my scripts.

I'm doing a lot of scripting now, but it's all internal company stuff, so it's nothing the general public can appreciate, still I'm having a lot of fun making people's jobs easier, and as I work, my library grows, so who knows what will come of it...
I got another email last week about Wolfgang Resel's "DeEmbed" script. I sent him an email, and he quickly fixed it. The good news is that, in the process of tracking him down, I found the new link to all the JS archives on hilfdirselbst.com and updated the link on the bottom of my page. It was cool to see my name and work on a total strangers site. :)
