Selection of saved Java Scripts

Post by filky »

It would be very helpful to introduce two enhancements related to working with Java Script.

The first is to add a feature in the Java Script Console so that you can select saved scripts and then run them.

The second is to be able to customise the toolbar with a new tool that used a selected Java Script.

I love the fact we can use Java Script at all, but I think we're missing an obvious ability to use the scripts outside of a document level and not just as a script that runs as part of a button for example added into a document.

If this is possible already I'm looking forward to learning how!!

Hello filky,

Thanks for your post.
It is actually already possible to create custom JS code, and have it run when you press a button.
Those buttons are added in a custom "Add-in tools" ribbon group when available:
And here are a couple of examples of how that is done:

Kind regards,
