    Skip Printing Instructions dialog

    Studio1540 Community Member

      Is there a way to skip the printing instructions dialog when packaging a project?


      We don't use it and since the Instructions dialog can be accessed from the Package dialog, it seems like an uneccessary, additional step. If we decided that we needed to add a instructions file, we could access it from Package dialog.

          Not as far as I know.

            Scripting lets you skip dialogs. If you are using OSX you could save this script and attach it to a key command.



            tell application "Adobe InDesign CS6"

                      set thefolder to choose folder with prompt "Select a Package Folder"

                      set thePath to thefolder

                      set user interaction level of script preferences to never interact

                      set myDoc to active document

                      tell myDoc

              --copies fonts, graphics, profiles, updates graphics and does not ignore preflight problems

              package to thePath with copying fonts, copying linked graphics, copying profiles, updating graphics, including hidden layers and creating report without ignore preflight errors

                      end tell

                      set user interaction level of script preferences to interact with all

            end tell
