If you"ve ever come up against that director bug where all your scripts get confused about what type of script they are (ie. you get "handler not found" errors all over the place, and you can"t create new instances from your parent scripts) the usual solution is to change the scriptType of the offending scripts to something arbitrary, save and compact the movie, then change the scriptTypes back to what it should be and save the movie all over again. From Andy Wilson"s Page of tips and Tricks http://195.92.248.101:802/director

on fixScripts
  set scrpts = []
  set cntLibs = the number of castLibs
  repeat with x = 1 to cntLibs
    setAt (scrpts, x, [])
    set libScrpts = getAt (scrpts, x)
    set cntMems = the number of
    members of castLib x
    if not cntMems then next repeat
    repeat with y = 1 to cntMems
      if the type of member y of
      castLib x <> #empty then
        if the type of member y of
        castLib x <> #script then
          set scTxt = the scriptText of
          member y of castLib x
          setAt  (libScrpts, y, scTxt)
          set the scriptText of member y
         of castLib x = EMPTY
        else
          set styp = the scriptType of
             member y of castLib x
          if offset("on fixScripts", the
      scriptText of member y of
     castLib x) then
            setAt (libScrpts, y, #none)
          else
            setAt (libScrpts, y, styp)
            if styp = #movie then
              set the scriptType of member y
             of castLib x = #score
            else
              set the scriptType of member y
           of castLib x = #movie
            end if
          end if
