I am trying to make a Skript that opens a virtual book for the help page. I am trying to make a skript for making these books, but it does not work. I have searched and found this: https://forums.skunity.com/threads/open-book-w-text.2625/ where @LimeGlass put how to make the book item into a variable than open that book up, however it's not working. Is this a bug with Skellett or did I do something wrong?

[doublepost=1513444439,1513438421][/doublepost]open book does actually work, it looks like the problem is with setting the book to the player's tool. Did I do that wrong?
Try this:

command /openbook <text>:
        set {_i} to player's tool
        set player's tool to {book.%arg 1%}
        open player's tool to player
        set player's tool to {_i}


command /openbook <text>:
        open book {book.%arg 1%} to the player
The coding is very finicky. The NMS packet only accepts an ItemStack of NMS, not a craftbukkit ItemStack and not a ItemType (Skript's custom aliases) Skellett does it's best to try and convert it to what the NMS packet for opening the book wants, it doesn't always work the greatest. The main issue that arises is that most of the time an ItemType is cast in the syntax. So like

set {_itemType} to diamond


set {_itemStack} to player's tool
And sometimes Skript converts ItemStack's to ItemType's if they're simple and blank (No lore, no name etc, just raw item)

There is a syntax to create a new book which this syntax supports if you want to create and setup a book. It's designed to work well with the open book effect.

set {_book} to new written book
add a page with text "Hello" to book {_book}
set author of book {_book} to "&aLime"
set page 1 in book {_book} to "&6Hello testing"
open book {_book} to player

If you're looking for how to create clickable things, like links or add the ability to execute a command when someone clicks a word in the book, you can check out Skellett update #122: https://forums.skunity.com/resources/skellett-the-addon-with-a-beast-name.24/update?update=499
