I have programmed Applescript and Indesign for desktop for years.
I have a solution that should work well with Indesign server and applescript.
Downloaded the Trial for Indesign Server CC.
Then you have to figure out how to activate the product, which i think i have done via this command :
adobe_prtk --tool=StartTrial --leid=InDesignServer-CS7-Mac-GM
Now that its not compaining about being activated i can see that the sample applescripts provided in the install can compile.
If i run them however i get a failiure thats odd.
tell application "Finder"
get startup disk
tell application "InDesignServer"
close every document saving no
make new document
--> document "Untitled 3"
save document "Untitled 3" to "CWFM1:ServerTestFiles:bob.indd"
--> error number -1728
error "InDesignServer got an error: Can’t get document \"Untitled 3\"." number -1728 from document "Untitled 3"
The folder is chmod'd to 777 so its not a read write issue.
if i just use the normal open command in applescript i get this error :
The document “bob.indd” could not be opened. InDesignServer cannot open files of this type.
which is just odd. its a normal empty indesign document with nothing in it!
has anyone got ideas?
Server is MacMini i7 with 16gb ram, OS X 10.8.5 server.
Ok, i uninstalled indesign server CC and found a copy of the Trial CS6 indesign server. that works fine. must be a bug in CC. Joy....
