I have a few scripts that I've written for my boss, who runs a photography studio. He has several computers in his office that will need to be using the scripts. Obviously, he has a network to share files and whatnot, is there any way to share scripts like this too? Maybe redirect where InDesign looks for the scripts? It's really a hassle, and impractical, to have to install and maintain them all individually.
I'm using JS and CS4, if that makes a difference.
Thanks in advance for your help!
Try making a script that uses a script UI window and a drop down list that gathers the path of the scripts from a central folder, and displays the names of the scripts in the drop down. That way there's only one hard copy script, and it dynamically retrieves the scripts. Then you open the script with read privileges, save it as a string, and run the script through a do script.
Simply create a shortcut to the network folder with the scripts, and put that shortcut in the scriptspanel folder.
Done it one Mac, and works both in CS3 and CS4 over AFP. Dont know about PC but i think it's the same.

So I would need to create a shortcut for each computer to the folder on the network. Thanks! I'll see how it works on the PC's.
