    Help! 'Package for Print' Script

    Papooch

      Hi all,

       

      I have a specific 'Package For Print' script, that needs a small modification, and and I was hoping someone could help me.

       

      Essentially, I need to OMIT 'Include PDF' option when packaging, since this makes things a bit wonky on my script (see below).

       

      Let me know if you need to see the script, and I'll post it.

       

      Thank you.

              Here you go, and thank you. I know notes are also included in it. Sorry about this.

                  Thanks Trevor. I only sent the screen shot to show what box should be

                  unchecked when I run my own script. Essentially I want to avoid InDesign

                  making a print  PDF when I use the script. That would solve my problem.

                    Hi Parham

                     

                    After the lines

                      //Digital Proof
                      w.proof = w.add("Panel { orientation: 'column', alignment: 'fill', \
                      text: 'Digital Proof', alignChildren: 'left'}");
                      w.proof.make = w.proof.add("Checkbox { text: 'Make PDF Proof' }");
                      w.proof.viewAfter = w.proof.add("Checkbox { text: 'View PDF' }");
                    

                    add the line

                      w.proof.visible = false;
                    

                     

                     

                    Just search the script for the phrase View PDF

                    It will do the trick

                      Thanks for the help so far Trevor. Unfortunately the pesky print PDF is still inside the 'Originals' folder.

                       

                      Basically, once I run the script, it is supposed to create a folder on my desktop, with 4 sub-folders in it (Screen1) attached.

                       

                      It is then supposed to place all relevant links inside a sub-folder in the 'Originals' folder, and have the Indsign file grab the relevant links from that 'Links' folder (Screen 2).Screen 1.pngScreen 2.png

                      This is what it used to do prior to 2014 upgrade. Now, it creates that print PDF inside the 'Originals' folder, and Indesign links to that file instead of the correct one in the 'Links' folder.  This can cause an issue for me since that particular print PDF is not always high resolution (depending on my PDF settings). Now I realise I could manually delete the 'bad file' after the folder is created, but then Indesign complains that the needed links are missing, and one has to manually point to the correct links etc.

                       

                      Being in a high volume print environment, I'm sure you can imagine this is not ideal, specially since we had a smooth operation prior to this upgrade.

                       

                      Once again, I appreciate all the help.

                        Hi Parham

                        I'm sorry I'm too busy to do this one for free now.  If you want  me to fix it up you can sent me a mail to trevor at creative-scripts dot com for a quote.


                        I'll post your original script in a formatted form to make it easier for other people to look at it.

                          Hi

                           

                          Parham took my advice and hired me and I got to the route of the problem

                           

                          The packageForPrint method has changed for 2014. it now has a couple of extra variables that aren't in the previous versions.

                          The extra one being include pdf (which at least on Parham's system was set as true) and include idml file.

                          When these values weren't the pdf was being included in a way that messed things up.

                          The fix was simple, it just took a little bit of time to get to the route of the problem.

                           

                          I think it's about time we stated a what's change post, so I think I shall do that now.
