Hi Daniel,

very interesting question!
I don't have an answer to your question but maybe a first hint which way to
for a workaround:

>From within an AppleScript you can also run shell commands. Maybe you know
that, if not, it is described here:

So you just need to find out how to achieve what you want with a terminal
command, and then you can launch that command with an AppleScript.

I'm also using MacOS X, so if you find out how to automate IPE in OS X, I'd
happy if you share your knowledge with me and others in the IPE Wiki.

Betreff: [Ipe-discuss] Hello, and a question about OS X

This is my first time posting to the list.  I am a new high school science
teacher, and LaTeX combined with Ipe has proven to be extremely powerful in
creating awesome handouts and worksheets.  I work on OS X and do a lot with
AppleScript.  Any chance of making Ipe scriptable, at least in the most
basic ways of reporting windows, names, documents, etc?

I don't know what is involved with making an AppleScript Library, hopefully
it's a simple matter.  Has anyone ever requested this?
