when it isn't right.
Now place the cursor in the blank area of the Clipbook window and right
click to bring up the Clipbook pop up menu. Near the bottom of the window
is an entry that says "Show Headers". If this option is selected it will
show a check mark in front of the words "Show Headers". If it does not show
a check mark, left click on the words "Show Headers".
At this time the pop up menu will disappear. Opening the pop up menu again
will allow you to verify that the check mark is now present.
Left clicking on any area outside of the pop up menu box will close it.
- Hi LaurieK,
If you followed Jim's advice to select 'Show Headers' the words
TEST CLIP should appear at the top of the editor window.
Regardless of whether the clip name shows you can still build a
clip with the info in your email, with a couple of slight
The email may have changed the formatting of your text, if not
the last 2 lines lines need editing.
This is how the clip should appear in the editor window if you
checked 'Show Headers' ;
;Get the Name of the current document and
;save it in the Variable called %docfilename% (Gray)
;Print a Prompt to the screen telling
;the Name of the Current Document
^!prompt Current Document's File Name is: ^%docfilename%
The word (BLUE) should be on another line or it will show as part
of the filename, and anything other than a label, function or
command should be commented out with a semi-colon as is the word

- you are a genious
Show headers is what was needed... BUT... when I copy paste the script as it
were, into the editor and save it, it now changes the clip name, so WOO HOO
but... when I execute it, it shows a small windows that says
The Document Name Is:
THen I click OK and it shows the name of the current document and next to it
is (blue) so what I am doing wrong that the world blue is showing? And why
is the word blue there?
> why is the word blue there?if there can be an artist formerly known as Prince
why can't there be a document formerly known as (blue).....
