Prevent multiple SIL scripts/files

I'm new to JJupin/SIL so I apologize if this is obvious. I created a script as a part of a workflow (post-function) and every time I edit the script, it adds a "_n" to the end with n being an incremented number. So now I have myscript.sil, myscript_1.sil, myscript_2.sil, etc.

How can I prevent this happening to where it just overwrites the existing one when I edit? Thanks!

Hi Chris,


You can edit the script from the SIL Manager instead of editing the post function.


Best regards,


Or when you are on workflow editor, select "Reuse existing script" to prevent creating a new copy.



That may help for new workflow postfunctions, but if you want to update an existing one, your best shot is SIL Manager.
