Very nice. Thanks for this!
I work with a lot of book documents.
Would love the option to export all files in a book to individual pdfs or by selecting a range.
I know your busy, but there's always room for improvement, right?
You must be on a Mac because in Windows you just have to select all the files you want to open and double-click.
Fred, I'm on both -- but usually on Windows! Don't you just *hate* that workaround? First I have to select the top document, then scroll down the list and select the bottom one. One click too many and the list is de-selected, and you end up getting just one document opened. Annoying!
Besides, the same trick does not work for closing all book documents, does it?
You can close all open documents with the KBSC - but that crashes my computer when I have too many docs open.
Similarly with saving all open documents - too many and computer says no.
I just found this old thread and would like to tell you that the script doesn't work (anymore) - at least for me.
I'm working on Windows 7 with Indesign CC 2017 (german version).
Anyway - if you got the the time to update the script it would be fantastic when you implement a function which open all files in a book silently.
With silently i mean that i don't want to be prompted for missing items like fonts or pictures.
