    Script Save As on Multiple files without user interaction

    bernst@fastline.com Level 1

      W have many InDesign files in a single folder. I need to open all the files and do a Save As - not a Save - on them and replace the files in their original location I found the following script which does the save process, but I am unsure how to change this to do a Save as instead. Any help is appreciated.



      tell application "Finder"

        set myInFolder to choose folder with prompt "Select a folder"

        set myFilelist to files in myInFolder whose name ends with ".indd"

      end tell


      tell application "Adobe InDesign CC"

        set user interaction level of script preferences to never interact

        repeat with myDoc from (count myFilelist) to 1 by -1

        set myCurrentFile to item myDoc of myFilelist

        open myCurrentFile

        set myCurDocument to active document

        tell myCurDocument



        close (save)

        end tell

        end repeat

        set user interaction level of script preferences to interact with all

        beep 3

        display alert "Finished!"

      end tell
