    Changing layer names with a script in InDesign or Applescript

    shirleyp91907085

      Hello...

      First time posting in this forum, I can't seem to find an answer to this problem I'm having in any forums here and elsewhere. I have the plug-in InData that I import from an excel text file into a prototype in an InDesign document that I use daily. I have created layers for different "backs" that I keep static (except for the text I import). The  problem I'm running into is that I don't know how to change the layer names except to manually change them. Is there a script that will change the form numbers automatically? The form number the layers need to be is actually in the text file that I import. Maybe in Applescript somehow to script change layer 1 to layer 15... (or any number.. to form 1234 to 5678...   Any help would be greatly appreciated. InDesign CS6 v8.0.. Thank you!Screen Shot 2016-11-03 at 3.34.16 PM.png
