Dialog to select number of pages on a signature
Authored by: jecwobble on Feb 22, '05 04:50:56PM
I'm not sure I'm using the term 'signature' correctly, but regarding the original poster's comment about the number of pages to use, I have a couple of suggestions. Since the link to the Perl script is broken, I can't do this myself, but when it is fixed, I'm sure an AppleScript applicatoin (or AppleScript Studio app) could be written to select a number to pass to the Perl script.

Alternately, Pashua or CocoaDilog could be used to achieve the same result.

Dialog to select number of pages on a signature
Authored by: DougEdwards47 on Feb 23, '05 04:25:27AM

Sure, it would not be difficult to wrap this up in Applescript to generate a dialogue to prompt for the signature - but I don't find that elegant. Coming from a Unix command line enironment, I find nested dialogues tedious. The correct solution would be to add the option to the 1st page of the standard print dialogue.
