  • Edit > Sequence... > Insert Script...

    Edit > Sequence... > Insert Script... appears to add Visual Basic Script (.vbs) to the sequence. But I could not find any information even in the official documentation.

    Does anyone know how it works? Or does it work at all?

    As far as I'm aware, Canvas does not provide API, so I thought it would be impossible to write a script for automation, other than the sequences using GUI.

    I would be nice to have any API. It would be even nicer if it's python or Java or JavaScript...

    On your computer, if you look in the folder where the Canvas program is installed (in my system it is C:\Program Files\ACD Systems\Canvas X 2018\Scripting) you'll find the Scripting folder. Inside the Scripting folder is a 487 page PDF file Canvas Scripting Reference Guide along with an Example Scripts folder.. The reference guide was last updated in 2003, but since it's installed with the latest software version it may be of some help. On the other hand you'll also find a Plugins folder and Canvas no longer supports plugins.
