    How to script Indesign CS6 to use inches as default on startup

    cashxxdb Level 1

      Hi all....in previous versions of the Adobe Suite I would take pref files I setup and put them in the User Template on OS X and when students login they get the prefs.  With CS6 InDesign is not liking this anymore.

       

      I'm thinking a startup script that runs will be the solution.

       

      All I want to do is set the default to inches instead of points on the startup welcome screen so all students have to do is hit new document with inches already being set as the default.

       

      This scripting for InDesign is all new to me......any have this script already created, I can't believe we are the only ones asking for this, but I can't find much on scripting for InDesign or any helpful scripts.

       

      Thanks,
