i want to write lots of commands to a text file,
but i want that every command will create a new file with a new name.
how  can i do that?

The command I would use is "savetext". From the help:

savetext path
Saves the text found in the current text box in a text file format.

The input can be a file name with or without an extension (and the file will be saved in the current directory) or a full or relative path.

savetext "story.txt

So, to create different filename words, you just have to know the command to create words. That command is called "word"

show word "happy "hour


make "counter 1
show word "file :counter


make "counter :counter + 1
show word "file :counter

  • To save an attachment to your computer, PC users should right-click (Mac users, click and hold the mouse button) on the link and then choose 'save target as' from the pop-up menu. A window will then pop up in which you can choose a location for the file.
