Fan-tastic! Works like a charm, thanks!!
Related question: I see this line lots of places in that doc:
... but I get an error when I run that from Extendscript Toolkit (Extendscript Toolkit never gives me the error message, so I don't know what's wrong), and when I run it from .js files, nothing happens, no info in the console, not even an error. I'd love to be able to get info in the Premiere console. Right now I have a fake-o html console set up & didn't even realize there was a built-in console. Do I have to initialize the Premiere console somehow before I can use it?
The PPro Console panel is for debugging purposes only.
PProPanel shows how to publish info, warnings and errors to the PPro Events panel.
