Batch scripting multiple files

Recommended Posts

Out the VS Language Guide

What VectorScript Can't Do:

VectorScript does not have the ability to work across multiple documents or outside of a VectorWorks document context.

So you need to use something like Apple Script or something alike to open the files and run the VS on them.

maarten is correct.

If you are on a Mac, I can offer you a sample set of scripts that opens a file and exports it as DWG.

It takes a combination of Applescript, Vectorscript and GUI scripting (simulating mouse clicks and keyboard presses) to make it work.
