10.3: Add a burger locator to Address Book
Authored by: sjmills on Nov 16, '03 10:18:35PM

This didn't work for me until I added .scpt to the end of the file name. I hate that! It's a Mac, not a DOS box. iCAR has the same bug.

10.3: Add a burger locator to Address Book

Did it have a filetype/creator set appropriately? I'd venture that it didn't, at which point, without an extension, there's no way to tell that it's an AppleScript.

Besides, I much prefer extensions to filetypes - much easier to tell what it is and easier to change (not to mention easier to deal with as a programmer)

Yes, it was set correctly. I use Script Debugger, which always sets the type/sig.

When I tried the hint, the default was set to hide the file extension, meaning that Script Editor added the extension for me, then hid it in the Finder. I imagine it's just a fluke.
