Hi Jakob,

CallClient will only work if the custom FDK client was designed to be called 
from the outside. FDK clients are not set up this way by default. An 
alternative would be to have a FrameScript script do what the FDK client 
does, in addition to closing the file. Do you know exactly what the Save Jap 
File command is doing?

Otherwise, you could use a macro-type program where you could record all of 
the keystrokes involved and then replay it.
