Currently when selecting a built-in script or script from filesystem, you can't view or adjust the source.

Sometimes you just want to fidlle a bit with the script, or just take look at some existing (built-in) script to see how i t works and possibly copy parts of it.

Hi Valentijn,

1.7.4 has a view source link after you select one of the built-in scripts.

No it won't... it's much easier just to copy the file across than do this copying and pasting business.

Thanks for the update. I'll have to try to see whether it's convenient enough.

If I copy the source into the panel and add the extra lines, will it also start the 'parameter wizard' like running from filesystem?

You can do but I don't think it's the best method for speedy development. I've put some notes here: https://jamieechlin.atlassian.net/wiki/display/GRV/Built-In+Scripts#Built-InScripts-BuiltInScriptsHackingNotes - LMK if you have any questions.

Hmm so I can't test a script by copying it into the runner panel?
I need to put it in a file and point the script runner to the file?
