Try:<br /><br /> delete pages 3 thru 8<br /><br />-- <br />Shane Stanley <email@example.com>
Thanks. Thought I had tried that syntax, but I guess I didn't.
Can I bug you on a follow up?
The deleting pages part of my script is going fine. Now I also want to be able to delete pages as spreads.
I have a document set up as reader spreads (cover by itself, then two-page spreads with the back cover by itself at the end). I want the script to kill spreads so I can save out the spreads in individual documents.
What's happening is page 1 comes across clean (as it's own spread), but everything else winds up as two-page documents no longer side-by-side.
When I do this manually, I have to unselect page shuffle and spread shuffle, so in the script I put in:
tell document preferences
set allow page shuffle to false
set preserve layout when shuffling to false
but that doesn't seem to do the trick. If you have a three-page document with pages 2-3 as a spread, is there any way to kill page 1 and still leave 2-3 in spread formation?

That worked like a charm.
