I run a weekly newspaper and each week, I want to repurpose approx 60pp
to put on the web.
The stories are unstructured and each page is in a single ID document.
I thought that a headline and story text box could be manually selected and a script run to copy the contents to the clipboard, with a marker to split the headline from the following story.
Equally, in the case of a picture, a path and caption could be captured.
The data could then be handled by a VB programme, to create a file for each story.
I know this seems quite laborious, but with shortcuts, the job will take about an hour.
Is there a script somewhere that I could look at and modify to do something like this?
Alternatively, is there a better way of repurposing unstructured documents for the web?
