    How to have the dot drawn next to the currently opened book-documents?

    tobiask43046735 Level 1

      When I use the menu to do some book actions like exporting to PDF or synchronizing, InDesign shows a small dot next to the currently opened document(s) so you get a vague idea of progress (and which document actually causes some warning message etc). When I'm using a script to perform some book actions, e.g.


      var contents = app.activeBook.contents;
      for(var i=0, content; i < contents.length; i++) {
          content = contents[i];
          var filename = content.fullName.fsName;
          var document = app.open(filename, showingWindow=false);
          var idmlname = filename.substr(0, filename.lastIndexOf(".")) + ".idml";
          document.exportFile(format=ExportFormat.INDESIGN_MARKUP, to=File(idmlname));

      which exports every book document as IDML file, there is no such dot showing. Can this be enabled somehow?
