So at my work we use a type of label on all our jobs but we do two at a time.
So I am trying to make a script that dupes up the ticket and moves it across to fit.
But Im extremely new to scripting and I don't know where to start so I was wondering if anyone has any pointers to put me in the right direction?
Its fairly simple to do in InDesign, but I would question if you are using the right tool for this?
Are you only doing a single label at a time, or multiple labels at once?
If its purely a one off requirement, then yes, stick with a script.
However, If these are PDF Documents, and the requirements could potentially grow, I would be tempted to look at Quite Imposing Plus software (Quite at Home ).
Its a plugin for Acrobat that deals with this REALLY well with a PDF Environment. I used it for many years when I was in the Pre-Press industry.
This would get you started though based on selecting the initial item
you would have to do more work to get the page to fit etc...
var item = app.selection;
var newItem = item.duplicate();
newItem.geometricBounds = [item.geometricBounds,item.geometricBounds,item.geometricBounds,item.geometricBo unds + (item.geometricBounds - item.geometricBounds)];
