Are "Do Script" events still possible in VW? Win10?

Recommended Posts

There was a time back in the late 90's early 21st century that MiniCad/Vectorworks would respond to the AppleEvent "Do Script" among others.

With the development of the Windows version of VW's was/is there a similar means to send and do a script sent from another application?

Will this continue in light of the deprecation of Apple Events in newer Macintosh operating systems?


I was able to trigger menu items using AutoHotKey on the Windows platform but one had to make all the scripts part of the active VW menu. In both PC & Mac I utilized the function keys to trigger or send scripts that set multiple attributes and introduce office standard classes into imported files. We referred to them as Pen keys because it was like switching drawing pens (when no objects were selected).
