          Hi lamina,

          you first have to tell us which prefs you want to script.
          There are dozens of different prefs at each corner of InDesign.

            And not all of them are scriptable.

              basicalle the issue is, that we are many users which should be useing the same global preferences.

              Normally i would just replace the applicationdata/user..etc version 5.0 file with the one with the preferences we want to use. But the help center says that it can cause an unstabil system. Also i found out, that if i replace my replaced version 5.0 file and then replace it again, it seems to loose the settings. (does that make sence)

              When starting up indesign, i therefore need at script, concerning all the settings in the preferences palette in indesign (edit>preferences>general)ore is it actually better to just replace the version 5.0 file.

              What preferences do u have a script for?
