              Hi, thanks for your reply.

               

              We will pay you, but need some more clarification about other issues to....

               

              Do you have any idea about how to import idml through indesign server and create the .indd document.

                Hi,

                 

                Answer for all your question are "YES", so far.

                 

                However all those questions are "Is it possible...?", "Have you any idea...?" and so on.

                 

                If your goal is to create some automatic tool, which should be able to proccess doc "X" or "Y" with some procedures - "A", "B" or "C" - describe it, pls.

                 

                I will try to answer any specific question you ask.

                 

                For now I can only say: -Yes. Indesign javascript is able to open/import IDML file and modify/replace its image links executing a proper rules.

                Both InDesign and InDesign Server.

                  Hello Jarek,

                   

                   

                  Thanks for reply...

                   

                  K to be specific I have below three questions, can you please provide solution for this.

                   

                  If you want email conversation, here my email, astonrmartin@gmail.com

                   

                  1. I want script, which will identify all the images of indd doc, then i will replace these images with any other image, so replacing script is also needed.

                   

                  2. Script for importing idml to indd documents.

                   

                   

                  3. Converting pdf to indd document.

                   

                   

                  All above scripts are needed for Adobe InDesign Server.
