Launch the menu created using extension builder.

May 2, 2012 2:20 AM

Hello there,


      I have created one plugin(extention) using extension builder and with this i have added a menu in menu>help. But when i launch the indesign application the menu do not get activated. It is needed to launch the plugin(extention) first and then it(my menu from help) gets activated. I need the menu should get activated when I launch the Indesign. Any suggetions please.

    Three ways to do this:

    1) Use a startup (ExtnedScript) script.

    2) Create an extension which has a lifecycle that is launched when the app is launched and make it non-visible.

    3) Create the window as an additional extension and specify the menu location as being under the Help menu.
