It seems you could set up a macro to run the three scripts, and then just call the macro once. I wonder, can you run a macro from a toolbar button?
The tool looks for an executible but if I create a macro to run three scripts can I call the macro once and have it apply to any schematic I happen to have open? I could just add the macro to everyones desktop and be done with it.

I've had mixed luck with this. If you can do everything by keypress then I bet you can get it to work. If you have to rely on mouse moves, then I've found it gets tricky to have a generic macro. Luckily the macros are in ASCII (thanks Mentor!) so they are easy to review and debug.
One trick for this is to make sure the scripts are the same on every PC (maybe name them 'aaa script1', 'aaa script 93', etc.) so they come out at the top of the list (or that may be in the .ini file - hopefully the latter, because I realize what I just wrote may work in XP and not in 7). Otherwise if someone adds their own script it may throw off the macro and it will call the wrong script, unless you can get the macro to call the script by name instead of picking it out of a list.
I like the idea. I hope you can publish it after you get it working.
I'm not that good at scripts but I'll give it a try and if I get it working I'll send it to you so you can to look at the script and even test it. If it works maybe you can help me publish it.
Thanks for your help,
