"Test Run" Checkbox

The "Test Run" check box allows the user to apply a script to files without saving the changes.

In essence, "test run" the batch script. The drawing is exited cleanly, WITHOUT SAVING, after the changes are made.

Basically, Hurricane suppresses the QSAVE command.

So the general idea is this...

Here is an example:

This function is especially useful for when you are unsure if your script will function as expected. (Debug)
(If your script is very complex, you may want to run a "Test Run" on the first few drawing, to make sure things go smoothly)

When a script is compiled with "Test Run" enabled, we recommend you select "Delay" as well.
(The Delay is settable on the "Tools -> Options -> Prefs Tab")
