comment How to run custom AppleScript in the background at all times?
Are you confirming if you want to quit it you cannot do it through GUI if you use this app to make the change to a background app.

comment How to run custom AppleScript in the background at all times?
I am not sure how iBackground works but depending on what setting it is changing in the saved script's info.plist the app may run in full background meaning you cannot easily quit it because it is now acts like a process and has no Gui displayed

@rob This post is asking about Applescript. Although it would be better on stackexchange. Are you sure it is off topic: Here is a quote from: apple.stackexchange.com/help/on-topicCode-level programming questions (cocoa, LLVM, etc…) **are off-topic here**. We do encourage AppleScript, Automator, and UNIX shell scripting questions as well as how to use tools like Xcode for non-language specific tasks."

It would have been good if you had explained that nugget clearly in your answer. We all do not use the site. But anyway luckily my main answer works better as it does not require you to go clicking around.. I have updated my answer though just in case you do.

From the looks of the website. The answers are all actually images. So you cannot extract text!!

comment CMD+Left Arrow, CMD+Right Arrow — Jump Word
Yes that is correct. I copied the exact code you have posted. And I also did the same for the code in the other answer. CMD+ arrows jumped words instead of to ends.

comment CMD+Left Arrow, CMD+Right Arrow — Jump Word
Both options work for me. I even did a straight copy from your posted code. Remember for the effects to take place you must logout and back in.

Yes that is correct you should read the man page on defaults developer.apple.com/library/mac/documentation/Darwin/Reference/… You can also type in terminal man defaults to see it
