Script Group Properties

When you create a script you develop it within a script group, the properties of which determine how that script is to be made available to the user - through the Project Browser context menu to operate on objects of a specific type, or through a diagram context menu. You create a Script Group using the first icon on the Scripts tab toolbar.
