If you just want the number of lines, it is possible.
InDesign is a desktop publishing application, so you can definitely write on it.
You need to open the ExtendScript Toolkit, choose InDesign from the dropdown list and copy and paste the following lines:
var lines = document.stories.everyItem().lines.everyItem().getElements().length; alert(lines);
Then, click play, and an alert will display the number of lines in the open document.
Hello jake !
That's interesting to hear and good to know thank you ! Now the problem is that a newspaper that I am helping convert to In Design charges for legal ads by the column line. I've heard from my tutor that there is a plugin that is already taking in charge. I've made some research and I'm dry. Do you guys know anything about it ?
Have a nice day !
I don't really understand what you mean. What should the plugin do?
This seems like a separate questions, so I suggest you mark my answer as correct and ask this in a new discussion.
True that ! Thank you very much jake !
