I have a few VectorScripts that really save me some time, but sometimes they seem to "go missing" from the resource pallet. It would be nice if I can assign a "Hot Key" to the Script, this way I could just keep a list of these hot keys and use them rather than the resource pallet. Can this be done?

1. Open one of the scripts you like.

2. Copy the text of the script into the clip board:

select all and command+c

3. Goto Organize > Scripts > VectorScript Plug-in Editor.

4. Click on the New button.

5. Select Command.

6. Give it a name and hit ok

7. Click on the Script button.

8. Paste in your code.

9. Click the compile button to be sure it works

10. Exit the VS Editor

11. Exit that dialog.

12. Goto the Workspace Editor and add your new menu

command to your workspace.

13. Give it a keyboard short cut.

14. Exit the Workspace Editor.

There you go. Now you can use your script as if

it was built in. Repeat as necessary.
