Next steps after adding basic AppleScript support to Preview
Authored by: rpgoldman on Sep 09, '08 07:23:19AM

I have done this modification to Preview successfully, for which many thanks.

Now I'm left with the next question --- where do I go to find out what kind of actions I can script with this basic cocoa-based scripting capability?

I can't get a dictionary out of the newly-scriptable Preview app, and I don't know about how to find what is offered by Cocoa by default (as should be obvious, I am a real Mac novice, although I have a lot of Unix experience).

I'm particularly interested in being able to ask Preview "from outside" to open a document and jump to a specified location in it.

thanks!
