    Need help installing first .jsx script for InDesign CS4 6.0.6 under Windows 7 Pro SP1 (64 bit)




      I'm trying to use a first .jsx script for InDesign.

      The script install manual said to open my scripts panel and right-click on the folder and

      choose "Reveal in Explorer"  However, this choice is greyed out. I expect it's because

      I don't have any scripts installed yet, so I can't select anything to reveal.


      I looked for Adobe's instructions, and they suggested that (for XP) I put the script in

      ~\Documents and Settings\user_name\Application Data\Adobe\InDesign\Version 6.0\Scripts\Scripts Panel\

      I found

      ~\Users\Barb1\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\InDesign\Version 6.0\en_GB\Scripts\Scripts Panel\

      and I put the script in there and restarted InDesign, but the script doesn't show up in the InDesign

      script panel. The InDesign script panel contains two greyed out folders: Application and User

      I tried making a User folder in the ~\Scripts Panel\ folder, and putting the script in there, but that

      didn't help.


      Any ideas as to how I could get InDesign to acknowledge the presence of the script?


      Thanks for taking the time to read this question.
