How do I get it in the menubar
Authored by: EphraimWoody on Dec 05, '01 05:03:59PM

Getting there... OK. I have script menu, and it works for many things (I like it!.)
Now I want to put in the aliases (to fake the apple menu) as you suggested.
In /Insiders/Library/Scripts/App_Menu/ I have aliases to a couple of applications - no folders.
The Folder App_Menu shows up in the scriptmenu, but it is empty.

If I put a folder in App_Menu, the folder shows up (properly nested) in the script menu. It's contents do not.

One workaround I can see is to make a half dozen applescripts that do nothing but launch an app and quit, but that seems clumsy. Is there a way to get them to show directly? Thanks - this is very exciting to me.

Are you putting OS X app's in there? I think that is the problem - because they are sort of packages and so they look like folders to the script menu.
It is possible to write a script that will launch each script individually but the idea behind the script was to aviod this rather cumbersome approach.
I thin there is a work-round for OS X apps where the script would list all the files that are .app types. If I have time over the next few days I'll take a look at it and repost here and at http://www.metaclarity.com/applescript/
