Importing and Opening Scripts in Scriptation

How do you import a file into Scriptation?

Import on iPad / iPhone

Open the PDF from its current location and tap the Share icon at the top right.

Then tap Scriptation from the list of apps.

TIP: If you don't see Scriptation, swipe right and tap More. Then from within the complete app list, tap Scriptation. If you still don't see Scriptation, keep in mind that it will only appear for PDF files.

From the Import screen, you can navigate within your Cloud or local folders. Once you've landed on the intended destination, tap Select.

NOTE: Cloud storage is a Scriptation Industry Pro feature.

DON'T FORGET: If your scripts are saved locally (i.e. On My Ipad), you will not be able to access them on other devices.

Import on Mac

On Mac, all of your files and folders are visible after clicking Select File from the Scriptation for Mac homescreen.

You can also drag/drop the file into the Drop File Here area.

You can also open a PDF in Scriptation by right-clicking on it

If you'd like to open a file directly from your download, desktop, cloud storage, or any other folder, simply right click the file (or tap with two fingers on the trackpad) and select Open with ... Scriptation.

If Scriptation doesn't appear as an option, you can click Other to select Scriptation from your complete list of applications.

What if I want to make PDF files open in Scriptation by default?

If you'd like to double-click on a PDF and have it open in Scriptation, that's easy too.

Click Other (shown above), choose Scriptation, and then select the Always Open With box. Now all PDF files will automatically open in Scriptation.
