I have no experience with InDesign Scripts yet, but a couple of tasks on hand that would be faster with Scripts. I only know Actions in Photoshop, so I describing what I need as it would be a Photoshop Action:
- Open all files in folder A (I've got 44 .indd files in this folder)
- Paste in Place on page X (a couple objects I already have in the cache)
and so on...
Is this complicated? Can I find this Script somewhere?
I found an "open" and "save" script here, but with my lacking knowledge this won't help me...http://olivier.berquin.free.fr/indesign/indesign_2.html#top_open_document
var myfolder = Folder("/c/...");//or Folder.selectDialog();
var myfiles = myfolder.getFiles("*.indd");
for(i=myfiles.length-1; i>=0; i--)
app.layoutWindows.activePage = myfiles[i].pages[X];
//You should better use a place method with a external file rather than pasteInPlace.
Hope it helps.
