How do I change the icon of a script?
Please don't laugh. I have never done anything with Apple scripts. I was just able to get this defer script into the OF toolbar. But it shows that ugly script icon. Is it possible to change the icon? If so, what do I have to do? Any pointers to a more basic (101 like) description are very welcome.

If you change the script's icon in the Finder, OF will use that icon in the toolbar.

To change the icon in the Finder:

- Navigate to the folder containing the script.

- Select the script.

- Choose File --> Get Info

- Find a file with an icon you like. Choose File --> Get Info on it also.

- In the Get Info window of the second file, select the icon [at the top, not the preview] and choose Edit --> Copy.

- In the Get Info window of the script, select the icon and choose Edit --> Paste.

You may need to Quit OF and relaunch it for the new icon to appear in the toolbar.

thanks a lot. Due to whatever reason I did not get this to work until I realized that I had to click on the Icon on top an not on the picture of the icon in the preview. Call me most stupid user of the week.:-(

Ah, good point. I'll edit my post to clarify.
