Script Bay: Script Panel Replacement for the Entire Creative Suite!

We are very excited to introduce Script Bay!

Script Bay is a FREE script panel replacement for the entire Creative Suite CS5.

It currently works in InDesign, Photoshop and Illustrator. It is partially compatibility with Flash and Fireworks and to a lesser extent, Bridge.

No, Script Bay will not work in CS4 or earlier. It’s built using the new CS SDK which Adobe introduced for CS5. It’s quite impossible to make it compatible with any version of the Creative Suite prior to CS5. Sorry… :(

Script Bay is very much a “work in progress”, but it is already far more usable than the script panel in InDesign, and without question more usable than the non-existing ones in Photoshop, Illustrator! We hope to add many exciting new features to Script Bay in the future!

Here’s a quick overview of the current features:

  • Script Bay offers the ability to run scripts located anywhere on your hard drive.
  • Scripts can be viewed in either a list-view or tree-view.
  • The list of scripts can be dynamically filtered, and scripts can be launched via keyboard navigation.
  • Scripts can be edited directly in the built-in Script Bay script editor.
  • Multiple scripts or folders full of scripts can be run in a single command.
  • Script files can be moved, duplicated, deleted, and renamed directly within the panel.
  • Scripts run in the Script Bay panel can be undone in InDesign as a single undo.
  • Scripts can be easily “installed” into the host application.
  • Script Bay has a default “cross-application” folder, and scripts placed in this folder are automatically available to all CS applications.
  • Script Bay supports drag & drop for moving around script files as well as loading scripts into the script editor.
  • Scripts can be added to Script Bay from anywhere on your hard drive by simple drag & drop.

We have more exciting plans for Script Bay, and we hope you enjoy Script Bay as much as we do!


  1. Download the latest build of Script Bay from here.
  2. Double click on the zxp file which should open Extension Manager CS5. (If you are running Windows Vista or Windows 7 with UAC active, you might need to launch Extension Manager as an administrator first.)
  3. Upon launching Extension Manager and initiating the installation, you will see the following window:

    Click Accept.
  4. You will then see this scary window:
    Click install. Don’t worry. All this means is we didn’t yet spend a few hundred dollars on a fancy electronic signature to make this scary window go away.


Once installed using the Extension Manager, Script Bay will be available for use in all the supported Creative Suite applications. With the exception of InDesign, Script Bay is available via a menu item in the Extensions sub-menu under the Window menu. In InDesign and InCopy, it is available in the same sub-menu as the built-in Script panel (i.e. in the Utilities sub-menu.)

Using Script Bay should be very self explanatory. You can launch a script by double clicking on it, by right clicking and selecting run script, or by clicking on the Run button. If multiple scripts are selected, the run button will run them all.

For a script to be edited in Script Bay’s script editor, the script editor must be visible. You can reveal the script editor by clicking on the code button:

Once the script editor is open, you can click on the “edit” button to load the currently selected script, or just drag a script into the editor area from either the script list or tree, or from a file in you computer’s file system.

When you are finished editing the script, you can run it directly from the editor to test that it works correctly, or save it into the currently selected folder.

To quickly run a script, you can type part of the script name into the script filter, and launch the script by hitting “return”.

Known Issues:

  1. Drag and Drop does not work perfectly in all the applications. The application which apparently has the most issues is Photoshop. The problems apparently stem from some bugs in the CS SDK, and Adobe is working on solving these issues.
  2. Scripts in InDesign are all run under a single persistent engine. #targetengine directives are currently ignored. We hope to deal with this issue at a later date.
  3. The script editor currently supports Javascript and ExtendScript only. AppleScript and VBScript can not be run from the script editor.
  4. Applescripts and VBScripts in Photoshop and Illustrator do not currently work when run from Script Bay.
  5. A number of the commands do not yet work in Fireworks and Flash. These include Rename, Open, Reveal, Install, and Reveal Installed Scripts.

Here’s a few screen shots:

    Way to go Harbs! And for free? Can’t thank you enough!

    For all the Windows users out there, just delete the .zip and the end of the file name and then double click to install.

  2. Harbs says:

    Hi Zev,

    Thanks for pointing that out! I just fixed that.

    It was a problem with zxp files being defined on the site as “x-zip-compressed” instead of “octet-stream”…

  12. Scott Citron says:

    This is great. Thanks, Gabe. BTW, is there any way to turn off Tool Tips in Script Bay? I tried turning off Tool Tips in ID Prefs, but even that didn’t work?

    • Harbs says:

      Hi Scott,

      There’s currently no way to disable the tool tips. Are you referring to the file paths on files in the script list, or the button and drop down tips?

  13. Scott Citron says:

    The file paths in the script list. They tend to get in the way of reading the scripts’ names.

  14. Harbs says:


    Thanks for the suggestion!

    I just added a toggle to show/hide the script path for both the tree-view and the list view. It will be off by default.

    You’ll see it in the next build…

  17. […] all the neat things InDesign can do with typesetting world languages. In-Tools also makes the free ScriptBay: If you use scripts with InDesign, Photoshop, Illustrator, or any of the other Creative Suite apps, […]

  18. There are a few issues I want to mention in Illustrator, at least this happens to me:

    1. When I expand a script folder inside Script Bay by double-clicking it starts to run all the scripts inside. Force quit Illustrator was the only way out since I have plenty of scripts in the folder.

    2. I am using a script to change some text on paths. I have to nudge the text strings a little with the arrows. Selection inside Script Bay nudges at the same time, up and down instead of waiting on the same script.

    3. The Script Bay extension does not appear hooked to other panels when I open up Illustrator although I left it hooked before a normal restart. But when I fetch it again from the Extension menu it hooks to the same panels as before but with unexpected movements, moves to right on the screen and the whole panel is closed. I have to drag down to open the scripts view.

    But basically I like this extension very much and I am looking forward to new updates.

  19. Harbs says:


    Thanks for your comments!

    1) This is actually a feature. Script Bay allows chain-running of scripts, and double click is one of the ways to run scripts. To open folders with the mouse, you should click on the arrow. You can also open and close folders using the keyboard arrow keys. (The right arrow opens, and left arrow closes.)

    2) I did not understand your issue. Can you explain it better?

    3) Yes. I’m aware of this issue. It’s a bug in the CSXS subsystem in Illustrator. (The other apps do not have this problem.) As far as I know, all CS extensions suffer from this in Illustrator. I’ve reported this to the engineering team at Adobe. I don’t know if this will be fixed for CS5. The workaround is to not group CS extensions with other panels…

  20. Peter Kahrel says:

    I reinstalled Script Bay and played around with it in earnest, and here are a couple of comments.

    1. Brilliant tool, very helpful.
    2. I added the folder where my CS5 scripts are, and this was shown as “Scripts Panel” in Script Bay’s window. Maybe add “CS5” to show the ID version. By the time CS6 arrives and I add its script folder, I end up with two folders “Script Folder”. And since I don’t like tooltips there’s no way of telling which folder belongs to which version.
    3. “Hide script file pathe” doesn’t appear to work.
    4. The context menu in the file list (right-click) lets you add a new folder, but not delete any. If you accidentally created a new folder you have to go somewhere else to delete the “New Folder”. Can you add a “Delete Folder”?
    5. Maybe it’s useful to add a button somewhere “Clear editor window”, which also removes the script’s name.

    6. Can you do syntax-highlighting?

    Great extension — thanks.


  21. Harbs says:

    Hi Peter,

    Thanks for the comments!

    2) I actually just use one folder for all versions of InDesign. If it needs to be versioned, I put it in a version folder. That helps a lot with my script bookkeeping… 😉 That being said, I see your point about the Default folders that Script Bay creates. I’m not sure how to handle that with the eye to the future…

    3) What do you mean? When you select the option, you still see the tool tips?

    4) That’s a bug in the latest build. It’s already fixed in the next one.

    5) Okay. Someone else asked for the same thing. Should that also clear the undo memory, or should I preserve that?

    6) That’s on my list of things to look into. I also hope to implement code-completion and a function library for easy insertion of commonly used functions.

    Keep the suggestions coming!!! :)

    I really have a lot of amazing plans for this and I’ve only scratched the surface…

  22. Peter Kahrel says:

    > 3) What do you mean? When you select the option, you still see the tool tips?

    I thought, “Option? What option?” Then it dawned on me that Script Bay looks at InDesign’s settings. So to disable tooltips in Script Bay you have to disable them in InDesign. I think that that’s a good idea only if you can also do something about the speed at which they appear, as in ID: Normal (which is with a delay), Fast (which Script Bay defaults to whatever ID’s setting), and None.

    Nasty bug, by the way: double click a folder and Script Bay executes all scripts in that folder. So there I was pressing Cancel, Close, Stop, Halt, Exit, Stready on now, Hold it, etc. 386 times…

    Great extension though!

    > I really have a lot of amazing plans for this

    Go to it!

  23. Jason says:

    I see the Script Bay panel just fine in Photoshop, but in Illustrator, it’s blank (i.e. no scripts, script folders, and actually, not even the main panel elements). Any ideas?


    P.S. Both are CS5, of course.

    • Harbs says:

      Hi Jason,

      Try restarting Illustrator. It could just be a fluke. If that doesn’t help, let me know, and I’ll try to see if I can figure out the problem…

  24. Jason says:

    yep, I’m pretty well-versed in trouble-shooting (although I’m not a programmer by any means). I tried:
    – restarting Illustrator (several times)
    – trashing my Prefs file
    – uninstalling Script Bay via Ext. Mgr.
    – reinstalling Script Bay via Ext. Mgr.
    – removing my “Scriptographer” plug-in

    … I think that’s all I tried, but I might be missing something. FWIW, I do have a few custom plug-ins for Ai CS5. Not sure if those could be getting in the way. (FILTERiT, Xtream Path, Curvius and Phantasm) are the ones I have installed, FYI.

  25. Harbs says:

    Hi Jason,

    I’ll send you an email to try to follow up on this…

    • mustafa says:

      Hi…Firstly it was working perfectly but I did uninstall Script Bay via Ext. Mgr. and reinstall the tool but Script Bay’s panel is empty…I tried several way but the tool doesn’t work..Help!!!

  26. Jason says:

    Got it working properly now… Just wanted to leave a comment expressing my appreciation for this panel (and for the troubleshooting help).

    Until now, using scripts in Illustrator has been hit or miss for me (usually more “miss” than “hit,”). I used to end up wasting a lot of time just trying to get my head around what scripts I have, and what each one does.

    This tool changes everything. It eliminates the tedious process of experimenting with scripts, and finally makes scripts a practical part of my workflow. Thanks for this!


    • yjling says:

      Hi Jason, I am having the exact issue in illustrator CS6. It was working fine till a technician came by to “fix” some permissions issue. Thereafter, the Script Bay panel in Ill CS6 shows up blank. Indesign and photoshop weren’t affected though.
      When I logged in to my temporary account to test, Script Bay panel works fine! What was your solution? Do you have any advice for me?


  27. Not a big fan of leaving my 2 Sense around on these comment boards, but WAY TO GO! This is by far the most powerful panel I’ve ever used. As a designer and developer, this tool lets me be in both worlds at the same time. I really appreciate what you’ve made here and, again, good job!!

  28. […] kostenloser Ersatz für das Skriptenbedienfeld nicht nur, aber auch für InDesign. Auf der Webseite sind diese Vorteile […]

  29. Jason says:

    Just dropping by again to mention an issue that appears with Script Bay on a regular basis. Essentially, every so often, Script Bay loads ~15 iterations of itself at once. This happened with Adobe Illustrator CS5 and now with CS5.5. I can’t discern what triggers it to do this, other than that it always happens when I load my one and only workspace layout for AI (via the Window menu). The only solution I’ve found is to completely uninstall SB via the Extension Manager, trash the preference/cache files for AI and for EM, and reinstall SB. Even then, sometimes it continues to “self-replicate,” causing me to have to try all that again. I love SB, but this issue is exceedingly irritating. Any ideas?

    I’m using Lion now… and CS5.5… but the issue was the same with Snow Leopard and CS5. It only happens (or I only notice it happening) in AI (b/c I don’t use SB in Photoshop or any other app).



    • Harbs says:

      There’s a number of issues with CS Panels in CS5. CS Panels and workspaces don’t mesh very well. Nor does docking them with other panels.

      If you can keep Script Bay independent from other panel groups, it might help your issues. FWIW, there’s good hope that CS Panel issues will be fixed in CS6…

  30. Trevor says:

    Hi Harbs
    Yesterday run into the same bug that Peter did

    “double click a folder and Script Bay executes all scripts in that folder. So there I was pressing Cancel, Close, Stop, Halt, Exit, Stready on now, Hold it, etc. 386 times…”

    (that’s what caused the “confidential” water mark problem)

    Any fix on the way or alternative way of stopping the run?

  31. Harbs says:

    It’s not a bug. It’s a feature. (i.e. you can batch run a bunch of scripts) 😉

    That being said, I do recognize that you might not want the “feature” (especially when you accidentally double click on a folder full of scripts), so I might make it a preference or limit the multiple running of the scripts to the button or the context menu…

  32. Harbs says:

    It’s also not a bad idea to halt the whole batch of scripts when one is halted in the middle. I’ll look into that…

  33. Pierre says:


    I installed the script panel in Photoshop CS5 (12.0.4), added scripts and it looked like it was working well until I tried to edit a script. Clicking on expand the width of the panel and does not start an editor, is this normal?

    I also added a folder and I don’t need it anymore, how can I delete it?

    Thanks in advance for all replies.


    • Harbs says:

      The editor window opens blank.
      To edit a script, drag the script from the list into the editor window.

      To remove a script folder, select the folder and select the flyout menu. You should see a menu option “Remove Script Folder”.

    Is there any way you can make hotkeys trigger scripts? I used to be able to do this with the standard Edit Keyboard Shortcuts… in Illustrator CS(1), but CS5.1 has removed this ability.

    My illustrator (15.1.0) reliably crashes when I click “Add Folder” in the script bay.
    (OSX Lion – Adobe extension manager patch installed)

    Is there a troubleshoot step I overlooked?

    Many thanks! Love the panel!

    • Harbs says:

      Hi Herman,

      Hmm. There’s a know bug where CS Extension folder dialogs causes a crash in Lion. That’s probably what you are seeing. There’s a workaround, and I’ll have to find the time to implement it into Script Bay. It’ll probably be a week or two before I can get to it though. Stay tuned…

      • Herman says:

        Hi Harbs!
        Thanks for the super quick reply :)
        -It seems to have sorted itself out, the only difference being that I have filled the default illustrator folder with my scripts.

        Leading me to believe that if there are no scripts listed, the dialog window crashes. So for now, I’ll merrily enjoy the panel!

        Thanks again! :)

  45. I stumbled upon this extension and want to use it, but Extension Manager CS5 is spitting out an error in terrible English that says “The extension ‘ScriptBay’ does not contain valid signature. The extension will not be installed.” Any way around this?

  46. Harbs says:

    It’s a known bug in Extension Manager. You can read about it and download the update that fixes it here:

    I’m working with Photoshop x64 CS5.1. I have problem with the clipboard (select Image and Paste in new Layer).
    As soon as I disable the extension scriptBay works copy + paste normaly.

    • Harbs says:

      That sounds odd. I have no idea why that would be…

      • Dany says:

        I took notes in various forums on a problem with clip board and panel (flash UI) in CS5 and CS5.1. If a script is executed on Panel, it can Clipboard Influence. I testet with Adobe Configurator 3; same Problem.

        My simple Script:

        var doc = app.activeDocument;
        doc.layers[0].name = “test”;
        doc.activeLayer = doc.layers[0];
        doc = null;

  49. Łukasz says:

    that is groovy! Will be a huge time saver. you plan on ever adding syntax highlighting? I know there are a few free libraries out for this.

  50. When using the Extensions Manager, I receive the message:

    “The extension ‘ScriptBay’ does not contain valid signature. The extension will not be installed.”

    I hit okay…

    Then it says the same thing for each product. Suggestions?

  51. Is there any way to get this hotkeyed? I looked at the documentation and find nothing with regards to a Function Key or a three button Hotkey sequence. When I worked on a PC it was so wonderful to hit Command F + P (I think… it’s been a long time!) and the first letter of the script to run it. It would be wonderful if the Script Bay allowed for such speedy usage on the Mac! :)

  52. Philipp says:

    Hey, ScriptBay is very nice. But at work (Win Server 2008, Illustrator CS5) i installed ScriptBay and when i started it, illustrator crashed every time. At home with Win7 and IllustratorCS5 it works fine.
    Any idea why it crashed?
    thx, philipp

    • Harbs says:

      No idea. I can’t think of anything that would make Illustrator crash. Do you have trouble with other extensions?

      Did you try cleaning your Illustrator preferences?

      One thing you can try is to remove the CSXS prefs file.

      • Philipp says:

        hi harbs,
        thx for answering. i didn’t check other extensions. i will try to clean illustrator prefs. Please can you tell me, where i can remove the CSXS prefs?

  55. Uwe Laubender says:

    Just some quick questions:

    1. what is the latest version of ScriptBay?
    v 0.1.5 ?

    2. I tried using v 0.1.5 with InDesign CS5.5 v7.5.3 (German) and after install all I get is an empty gray field without the version number bar at the bottom.

    I also have ADPS installed. Could it be possible that the plug-ins destract ScriptBay?

    After expecting the manifest.xml of the installer zxp file I realised that there is an entry for InDesign CS5 and not for CS5.5. Does that mean I cannot use ScriptBay with CS5.5? Or should I change the manifest.xml to the dot version numbers?

    E.g.:Host Name=”IDSN” Version=”7″


    Host Name=”IDSN” Version=”7.5″

    3. I also installed ScriptBay 0.1.5 with InDesign CS5 v7.0.4 (German).
    After the install I got an (nearly) empty panel with two folders present: “InDesign” and “Cross Application”.
    Is that how it works?
    Or should the folders be automatically populated with scripts located in the Scripts folder of InDesign?

    Finally I managed to drag some folders with scripts to the ScriptBay panel by changing my workspace from “Application Frame” to “Application Bar”. The trick here was to first select the folders I wanted to drag in the Finder, then bring InDesign CS5 to front and finally drag the folders to the panel…

    However, the names of nearly all dragged folders changed to ” Copy”, ” Copy1″, ” Copy2″ etc. (note the blank in front of the name). Two exceptions: the names of the folders “Version 5.0” and “Version 6.0” were copied unchanged. All names of all subfolders translated flawlessly.

    So I had to rename the folders actually seen in the file system (Mac OSX 10.6.8) under my user directory in the documents folder.

    So far I could test now the scripts in ScriptBay are working…

    Maybe you can shed some light on the issues?

    Thank you very much,

    I have checked and unchecked the warning options in the Preferences panel with no change.

    Is ScriptBay no longer installable? Or am I missing something in Extension Manager?

    It would be great if the folders in Script Bay could be listed first (folders on top) and also include a fresh script list option if the scripts are added or renamed from outside of Illustrator (ex: through the OS file manager). Thanks for creating this great addition to Creative Suite.

    Until today, scriptbay worked fine. But today it only showed an empty window (not white btw, just the normal ui gray). So i deinstalled scriptbay via extension manager cs6.0.8, then tried to reinstall but exman always stops the installation, because scriptbay doesn’t contain a valid signature. There isn’t a choice to continue anyway. Starting exman with administrative rights doesn’t help,too.
    This happend on both of my pcs (win 7 64 bit).

    Can anybody reproduce this error or has any advice? I’m a big fan of scriptbay and my everyday workflow relies heavily on it =[

    A few days ago ScriptBay stopped being accessible able to launch? I reset Illustrator preferences, unloaded and reloaded ScriptBay, to no avail. I then uninstalled ScriptBay thinking maybe if I installed it fresh. However I was now met with the following message:

    “The extension ‘ScriptBay’ does not contain a valid signature.
    The extension will not be installed.”

    Nothing else has changed on my system and all other plugins etc work fine, can someone advise what has occurred concerning ScriptBay?

    ScriptBay is a big part of my daily workflow and now its not available, please someone help. Any feedback and advice is dearly welcomed.

    Thank you.

  70. It stopped working on CS6, I uninstalled from the Extension Manager, tried to reinstall, and get a message that in english would be something like..

    “The extension ‘ScriptBay’ does not have a valid signature. Extension won’t be installed”

    Last week scriptbay stopped working. i reinstalled the whole adobe cs6 suite just to find out, that it has sth. to do with the system date. If i set my system date just before the 12th of may 2015, scriptbay magically works again AND the extension manager gives an option to install it without a valid signature.
    Since it is not an option to adjust the systemdate in a professional workspace, it hope in-tools will release this plugin with a renewed signature.

    Just a quick word that I’m working on the “stopped working” problem. I’m not sure why it stopped working, but I’m working on getting out some improvements that I started implementing a long time ago.

    ^ Thank you so much Harbs, I will sleep better tonight, as it made for a rough weekend, thinking of life without ScriptBay. I am so thankful for your efforts and looking into things. Thank you, I am so grateful to hear this news.
