I am not sure I understand your question. You can simply put your script (that creates the menus) into start up scripts.
Even I tried in start up script, It won't work.
Any one help me...
If you put it in the startup scripts folder and it didn't work, there's something wrong with your script. But you're not giving us enough information to make reasonable guesses about the problem. When you say that the script won't work, what do you mean? Does it do nothing? Does it display an error message?
I add my code in C:\Program Files\Common Files\Adobe\Startup Scripts CS3\indesign-5.0 . It wont give any alert messages.Can you tell me where i have to put my jsx file.
I also want to know how to autorun my scripts after opened IDCS3,anyone can help me?
I have mine in
C:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\Application Data\Adobe\InDesign\Version 5.0\Scripts\Startup Scripts
By default the Startup Scripts folder doesn't exist. So you will have to create it.
The best place to put them:
C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe InDesign CS3\Scripts
/Applications/Adobe InDesign CS3/Scripts
You create a folder under the scripts folder for your project, then create a folder inside your project folder called "Startup Scripts".
Scripts in *your* Startup Scripts folder will be executed on startup. You will need to create a persistent scripting engine for your menus to have any effect.
What I typically do (many of my customer's projects are large - 60+ files) is organize projects like so:
Adobe InDesign CS3/Scripts
[in this folder are scripts that must stay as jsx files]
[here is the working source code]
[here are the files in /scripts converted to jsxbin
myProjectLoader.jsx loads all of the scripts in the jsx folder, then depending on a flag, loads either the files in the /bin or /scripts folder.
So when I deliver: I set the flag to load the binaries, convert the /scripts files to jsxbin, put them in the /bin folder, remove the /scripts folder, and send it to the customer.
