Load multiple AppleScript dictionaries in Script Editor
Authored by: rusto on Mar 05, '03 10:54:00AM
The second link has a post with this delightful script that will present a dialog box with all running apps, command-click on the ones you want to opent the dictionaries of (with acknowledgements to the authors):
tell application "Finder" 
    set {theFiles, theNames} to {file, name} of application processes 
    set eligibleNames to {} 
    repeat with i from 1 to (count theFiles) 
          if has scripting terminology of item i of theFiles then 
             set the end of eligibleNames to item i of theNames 
          end if 
       on error -- just skip anything that errors 
       end try 
    end repeat 
    set chosenNames to (choose from list eligibleNames with prompt  
       "Select the currently running application(s) whose " &  
       "dictionaries you wish to open:" default items {"Finder"} with multiple selections allowed) 
    if the result is false then return 
    repeat with i from 1 to (count chosenNames) 
       open (get application file of process (item i of chosenNames)) using application file id "ToyS" 
    end repeat 
 end tell
