Most of the scripts are "macro-scripts", that is to say scripts launched by the user thank to a button or a component in the graphic user interface (GUI). Other kinds of scripts, like plug-in of callbacks, may be run differently and their behavior is then described during thir installation.

 

To create a button for a macro-script you have just installed, follow these steps:

 

  • Click on the "Customize" menu item (wkip) to open the Customize dialog window (fig. 1).
  • In Category, choose Werwack... . You will see the list of the tools you installed from this website.
  • You may want to create a new toolbar to hold the buttons: on the right side of the dialog window, enter the name of the toolbar and press the "New" button.
  • Drag and drop the icon of the script you installed from the script list to the suitable toolbar.
  • Close the dialog window.

The script is now accessible from the main GUI and you just have to press on the button you have just created to launch it.
