Interactive Script Steps
When the execution mode button on the script tool bar is not selected, then the script will run in silent mode. This means that the default for effects and other steps which have a popup is to NOT display the popup.
When a script is recorded, all the steps are automatically set to Default, meaning that they will run as interactive in interactive mode and silent in silent mode. To force a step to be interactive even when the script is in silent mode, the step must be changed to interactive. To change the way the script step will behave, it is necessary to edit the script.
First, select Edit Selected Script.
When the script editor appears, click the arrow next to default for the step that you want to change.
This will produce a menu with three choices: Default, Interactive and Silent. To force a step to always be interactive, select Interactive from the menu. To force a step to always be silent, select Silent from the menu. Silent is good if you do not want the user to ever change a setting in the step.
