Example text

Many of the mental tasks we perform so easily are very difficult to “teach” a computer. Deciding if a photo needs to be rotated or not is an instantaneous decision we make subconsciously. Picking a color to match a color scheme in a room is, at least for some, a simple task. However, these kinds of things are nearly impossible to program into a script. NOTE To write a script, you need to know every detailed step in the process, including all the decision-making logic that users might take for granted.

These are made available to scripts with Scripting Additions. The Image Events scripting addition enables scripts to access the Core Image framework of the OS. Also, soon after the Core Data framework was developed, the Database Events scripting addition became available. Consistency maintained between updates Because AppleScript is built as a clean and easy-to-use layer on top of the OS that obscures the complex connection to the lower-level architecture, scripts typically continue to work from one OS update to the next.

Watching for changes in category or other group fields, a script can diverge the styles and structure based on the appropriate rules. For example, each product category could require the insertion of a title page with a leading blank page or it might prompt the creation of an entire new document for each section. Scripts can scan documents and build indexes or tables of contents. They can cross-reference products across corresponding documents, such as a catalog that has a separate price book. Some processes are too daunting to contemplate without scripts, such as modifying hundreds of price changes or adding or removing products.
