I got a new Mac (MacBook Pro, M1, 2020) this weekend and I’m starting to migrate my scripts and workflows.
There’s a couple issues that are coming up:
- I’m currently on Mac OS 10.11.6 using the Adobe CS6 applications and heavily script inDesign (8.1), photoshop (13.0) and Illustrator (16.04).
Will it be a pain to update scripts that work on CS6 to work with the current versions? inDesign (16.4), photoshop (22.5.1) and Illustrator (25.4.1).
I have BBEdit but have been using TextWrangler for years. Would it be possible to script finding every script on the mac that uses TextWrangler, change the tell application to BBEdit compile the script and save it? It looks like “open quickly” is not in the dictionary, I think I can manage all the rest.
Until I can get the code signing and notarizing working, I’m opening each app on the new machine, compiling and saving it. I get an alert the first time the app controls something new, but this seems to work. Or will that become a problem?
Are there any system or app changes that I need to be wary of?
