    Drag and Drop JPG Into InDesign from Another Application

    SVGmyria

      I am a developer working for a client who uses InDesign as part of their tool chain. The app I created for my client is a video gallery type of program, and it needs to integrate with InDesign in the following way: the user can drag and drop a JPG from my app into InDesign.

       

      Currently, the method I'm using for dragging and dropping works for every app except InDesign (I've created the app in Electron, so dragging and dropping should work as if dragging and dropping from a webpage). With InDesign, upon dropping the file into the app window, what we get instead is a `file://` text link.

       

      Is there a proper way to do this?
