I am very new to writing scripts (as in I've never done it before). If there is a kind person who would love to help me, I would be very grateful.
I need a script to create a text variable that updates as a future output date (whenever printed). It is for an expiration date. The output date needs to be 18 months in the future. For example, today's date is October 2015 so the future output date would need to be April 2017, but written in the format of 04/2017 (mm/yyyy).
I am working in the current InDesign CC2015 and on a Macintosh. I can create the script in TextEdit and place it in the correct folder, but I don't know how to import the script to autorun in that document and to place it where it needs to be placed.
Thank you in advance!!!
Thank you for your response. This is all very intimidating to understand the code.
I would love a little bit more help in writing the actual code and knowing how to install the script onto a document.
