Are you mean workspace.
Customize your panels you want on the screen, and from window menu>workspace>new workspace.
This look pretty good indeed!
i'll look into it today and see whats up.
For reference to other who might be interested here is the CS5 version of the pdf discused by peter :
Unless i'm mistaken this provides all the info to create scripts that have UIs and it works well!
But what i was looking for is a way to create a panel ou pallette like those you would find in the "window" menu.
This way the user doesn't have to load a script, only has to have the panel open like any other...
Does that make sense ?

@Ugo – this would require plug in development. Not my cup of tea…
Some information here:
And there is a dedicated forum for that:
Apart from that, if you are looking for script related things, see here:
@Ugo – back to scripting: With ScriptUI you could build a panel that will be available at start up and can be populated with information after opening a document.
The script for that panel can be placed in a InDesign's startup script folder.
Well i was actually asking myself the very question : do i really need a panel ?
So far i found a script thhat pretty much does what i need :
run the script opens a window
When all the fields are populated, hit continue and the custom text variables are updated with the freshly entered information
Now i need to tweak this code to suit my variables and find a way to "get" the current values instead of the defaults ones populating the form.
So i guess i can always execute the script to update, correct and update the variable and anytime, saving me the trouble of going about creating a plugin (this scared me more that anything )
I'll make sure it runs and see whats up. Any chance i can ask you later for support if i hit a rock?
Again thanks for the kind help, i now have ressources and some vocabulary to find stuff!
@Ugo – if you "hit a rock" you can always ask in the scripting forum. I posted the link in my answer #5 (the one at the bottom).
