Thanks! My first reaction was to doubt that I wanted an extra
folder level there. But then I realized that my scripts are all
in subfolders of the Scripts Panel folder anyway, so I moved
all these folders to an InDesign Scripts folder in Library >
Scripts and then copied aliases back. Bringing the ID scripts
into the scripts menu also this way causes a delay, but it's
only slight and the beachball doesn't appear.
I'm a little curious as to whether it's possible to modify
the top of the scripts menu or not. Apparently because I wanted
all my scripts at the computer rather than the user level,
nothing happens when I select Open [current application] Scripts
Folder or Open User Scripts Folder. The first doesn't bother me
because the current app is one of the folders below - i.e., it
would be redundant if it did work - and the second obviously
shouldn't bother me since I didn't (and don't) want any User
Scripts anyway. But it would be nicer if a simple Open Scripts
Folder command (without the triangle and subchoices) opened
my main Library > Scripts folder, or, failing that, the two
presently inactive commands did at least something - if
Open User Scripts Folder opened Users > Library > Home >
Preferences > Adobe InDesign > Version 6.0 > en_GB > Scripts >
Scripts Panel, for example - so I could access my invaluable
Cocaine.scpt, Heroin.scpt and Marijuana.scpt via this route
Most simply put, how do I restore basic functionality to the
first two lines of the scripts menu? I thought just making sure
I had a Users > Home > Library > Scripts folder would do it,
perhaps with some content for this folder being required, but
I've tried putting various things in it and nothing's worked.
So maybe it should be named "Scripts Folder"? Or be located
somewhere else? Or???

Am giving FastScripts Lite a spin, thanks.
