To make it really easy to paste a script into a forum post here, including converting [TAB] to 2 [SPACE]s, I have built and published this Keyboard Maestro Macro:
Of course it requires Keyboard Maestro, but it is a great tool that, IMO, almost all of you should have. If you don’t have/want KM, I’m sure this macro could be converted to an AppleScript. But the KM macro is triggered by text expansion:
~~~ TRIGGERS ~~~
“;km.as " – Paste AppleScript Block
NOTE: Both Typed Strings END with a single SPACE
Of course, you can change the triggers, and # of spaces/TAB to your liking.
The macro converts TABs to spaces, and pastes the 3 backtics, and script language, along with your script.
