      HELP! Was working perfectly now it is giving me this error and doesn't seem to be going past the printing option. Code is below.

       

       

       

      main.scpt

       

      set posixIdPath to "/Applications/Adobe InDesign CC/Adobe InDesign CC.app"

      do shell script "/Users/cdapice/Desktop/cryptoquip/getquip.sh"

      delay 8

      tell application posixIdPath

      activate

      end tell

      delay 8

      set scripttoRun to ":Users:cdapice:Desktop:cryptoquip:Script.jsx" as alias

      tell application "Adobe InDesign CC"

      do script scripttoRun language javascript

      end tell

      delay 5
