I have a script which allows me to automate flowing a Word Document into InDesign file. I am aware of Peter Kahrel Script Place documents | Peter Kahrel and one of the issues Peter is mentioning:
Unfortunately, it's not possible for a script to use InDesign's presets for placing Word documents. Before running the script, you need to create a preset and set it as the default.
What if InDesign crashes, I have to remember every time to set my custom preset 'as default'? Is it possible then to check if my custom import options are set as default? Perhaps there are some other solutions?
