Both the Bridge script and the InDesign script (ImageCatalog) work with graphics files, not InDesign files. You could, however, write a script that would export each page as a JPEG to a given folder (adding the page info to the file name), then use ImageCatalog to place the images from that folder into a contact sheet layout.
Thanks for explaining -- now I know why the script wasn't working! Alas, I am not knowledgable enough to write scripts. Do you know if there are any existing scripts that would work for what I need to do?
Have a look here, might help you:
Thanks for the link. It's exactly what I am looking for. A problem though is that, in spite of doing a search, I can find the file "WasScriptLibrary.jsx" referenced in the first step:
"1. Locate the file called "WasScriptLibrary.jsx" on your hard drive and open it with the ExtendScript Toolkit application or your favorite script editor."
Hopefully someone will offer a hint where to find the file.

Due to a prolonged, intense project, I'm just now getting back to the problem of creating contact sheets from InDesign.
I tried the revised script that includes INDD files as suggested by Kasyan, and it works fine.
However, I apologize for not explaining more clearly, but what I really need to do is create a sheet of miniature InDesign pages, similar to what prints out when choosing Thumbnails in the print dialog. Except that I need the bleed area to show.
Does anyone know if this is possible?
