Re: How to: Open and Append Document
- Hi griffin239,Here is a small script that might just do what you want:
tell application "SubEthaEdit"
set outputName to "murgalua Output" as text
set x to first document whose name is outputName
if (name of x is equal to outputName) then
set contents of the front document to contents of the front document & "foo"
set myf to make new document
set myf to the front document
set name of myf to outputName
set contents of the front document to "foo"
end tellHope this helps!
