    InDesign CC to Illustrator CC with BridgeTalk--needs focus now?

    Sturm359 Level 1

      Our company has been using Creative Suite 6 up until now. We have some very long, in-depth JavaScript scripts that we use with InDesign CS6 and Illustrator CS6. We are in the process of moving from CS6 to the Creative Cloud and we've noticed two major issues with how our scripts run in CC.

       

      1. When an InDesign script calls Illustrator by way of BridgeTalk, the script pauses until Illustrator is made the foreground application. That is, I have to actually click on the Illustrator dock icon or task-switch over to Illustrator from InDesign before the script continues doing what it does. While this isn't a huge problem, it does slow us down and adds an extra manual step into what should be a completely automated process.

       

      2. One of our InDesign scripts opens an .indd file, does a bunch of work on it, then it's supposed to save it (over the existing file) and close it. With InDesign CC now, sometimes it throws up a "Save" dialog when it should just save the file silently. When the script is run in InDesign CS6, the file is saved silently without any problem. Again, this adds another manual step into what should be automated and hands-off. Admittedly, the location to which the file is being saved is on a network drive, but again, InDesign CS6 never gave us any problem with that.

       

      Does anyone know of a fix or workaround for these new issues that Creative Cloud has brought upon us?
