    [AS] Can Applescript record InDesign events ??

      Is is possible for the script editor to record apple events from Indesign? Ie. Press the record button in the script editor, do some stuff in Indesign and have the commands automatically recorded.

      If so, what is the criteria for this? CS1, CS2, CS3 ? MacOS 10.x ? Applescript version ?

      if not, is there a third-party plugin that will do this?
      (Many moons ago Quark (Agghhh) had an extension "ScriptMaster XT" which would allow the recording of events to the script editor)

      Currently wrestling with the limited topics that are covered in the Adobe AS guide. (Ie. lots of stuff on text, very little on images).

      Thanks in Advance.

      Matt.
