    exportFile producing blank pages...

    jsavage77 Level 1

         I have a script that exports a PDF using one of the default presets.  It works fine, so long as I don't click around until it's complete.  If I click anywhere, it produces blank pages in the PDF from that point on.  Unfortunately, there's no indication of when the script has finished exporting - the background tasks pallete shows nothing.  Is this a bug? Any ideas for a work around?

          @jsavage77 – this could be a known bug.

          Seems to be not present in InDesign CC v9.1.0, but in older versions.

          In older versions (CS5, CS5.5 and CS6), you could open the appropriate panel for the Background Task before starting the script and exporting to PDF, watch until the panel indicates, that the PDF is fully exported. Then proceed…


          If you cannot see anything in that panel, I suggest, that your script will be expanded with a message when the exported PDF file is fully written.


          Something to read (don't know, if you experience this, but it sounds like it):
