I am using FrameMaker 11 on a Windows 7 laptop.
The script catalog is a very handy way to easily access common scripts. However, the "favourites" section does not retain newly added scripts once the program is restarted.
Here is my workflow:
Open FM, open script catalog, add multiple scripts to "favourites," run any script, close FM, reopen FM, none of the scripts remain
If I do not run any of the scripts, they remain there the next time I open FM. However, running any script will remove all of them from the favourites section.
I've noticed that the scripts do remain in File -> Script -> History.
Is there any way to avoid this? It is very inconvenient to manually add the scripts back into the favourites section every time.
I would assemble the scripts in a menu, so that you do not need the Scripts Catalog at all. In my view, the Catalog GUI is poorly designed and apparently does not work as it should. You could use a text file with references to the scripts, have a script in the FM startup directory read that file and add the scripts to the menu. If you need something like the, drop me a line and I will make you a reasonable offer.
I agree with Jang. Unless I'm wildly confused about the Catalog pod, it doesn't work right.
