    How to disable the option of "Overprint [Black] Swatch at 100%" in Indesign by Apple Scripting


      Hi Friends,


      I am new to Indesign Scripting by Apple Script. As a beginner, I am trying to do some basic scripting in Indesign by Apple Script.


      My aim is to disable the option of "Overprint [Black] Swatch at 100%" in Indesign. This option is available when we go to Indesign ---> Preferences----> Appearance of Black.


      Also, if a user opens a file, in which the swatch is already enabled, then it should prompt him for disabling.


      I can make a display dialog in AppleScript. But, I am bit unsure as how can I go ahead and disable this option. I tried this below script:


      tell application "Adobe InDesign CS4"

            tell every layout window to set overprint preview to false

      end tell


      However, it is changing the view option to overprint preview.


      Appreciate your help and suggestions!
