    export content from an indesign page

      Hi,

       

      i need to export content from an indesign page( a retail catalogue) to create a point of sale ticket for the products on the page(about 10 products x 24 pages). ticket needs to have the prices ie was, save, now and the description of the product.

      whats the best way to enable this? using tags?

          In ESTK's Object Model Viewer, do a search on "exportFile" and that will give you a list of all the objects that support that call. So, if you have on a page of your catalogue one of these items all set up and ready to export, then just export it.

           

          But if you have to assemble the information in order to create your ticket, I'd use a technique where I create a temporary document and populate it from the catalog, then export it and discard it.
