Automating tasks with AppleScript

Skim is a scriptable application. It responds to AppleScript commands that let you automate Skim. For example, you can change the colors of all notes or highlights of a certain type, automatically add or remove highlights, and much more.

To see the commands you can use with Skim:

  1. Open the Script Editor application.
  2. Choose Window > Library or File > Open Dictionary..., and then click Skim. You may need to add Skim to the list first.
