dot   Script Summary:

The purpose of this script is to assist the user in creating multiple tags from a single template and a list of names.

dot   Installation Instructions:

Download the script package

  1. Place the ss-MultipleTagsMaster script in your Scripts-Trusted folder. The script must run from the Scripts-Trusted folder because it opens, saves, and closes files.

  2. Quick Guide and sample files:
    • Make a folder in your Quick Guides folder (if you don't already have one) called Scripts.
    • Within the Scripts folder, make a folder called ss-MultipleTags.
    • Place everything from the ZIP file (except the MultipleTagsMaster script) in the Scripts\ss-MultipleTags folder.
    • If you are working in PSP 8 or 9, you can open the MultipleTags ReadMe file in the Learning Center.
    • If you are working in PSP X or higher, you can view the ReadMe file by browsing to the ss-MultipleTags folder you created above and double-clicking on the index.htm file.

  3. The three sample files included with this package are provided merely for illustrative purposes. You will probably want to keep them in the ss-MultipleTags Quick guide folder so that everything is together.
