  1. Open the Plugins tab and click Macros.
  2. Use the debugger command in your script:

    var oDocument = Api.GetDocument();
    var oParagraph = oDocument.GetElement(0);
    oParagraph.AddText("Hello world!");
  3. Open the developer console by pressing the F12 button.
  4. Press the Run button to run your script.

    docbuilder script.docbuilder
  4. A link will appear in the terminal. You must open it in your Chrome/Chromium browser to connect to the JavaScript context.
