Hats off and thanks to the creators of ‘makegrid.jsx’ script!
I have come late to the party of scripts, but this little gem of a script is fantastic and can't believe I have had all this time.
Making a shape, placing an image into it then choose ‘make grid’ from the scripts samples folder is a revelation, making an
image or line rule fit multiple shape boxes has given me more ammunition for my design tool box.

The scripts are brilliant.
And they are just a starting point and examples of what can be scripted.
Of course there's the dedicated scripting forum here - http://forums.adobe.com/community/indesign/indesign_scripting
Where InDesign won't do what you want to do quickly - it can most likely be scripted to do so.
There are other scripts/plugins that are also fantastic
And a plethora more.
Your links are gratefully received. I am never suprised at the talent here on the Adobe Forum.
