Why do you want to use Smart Text Reflow in IDS? It's easy enough to
do that yourself with a script. I would also not be surprised if
scripting it would be more reliable even if you could get Smart Text
Reflow to work...
Of couse it's possible to write the code yourself. But I thought it would be easier to use an Indesign built in function instead of writing my own script code.

I just don't trust Smart Text Reflow... It's effects seem to be
delayed as well. I don't think relying on it to happen before you move
on in your script is a good idea either way. (Not even in ID Desktop.)
When I write the code, I know exactly what it'll do, and when...
I'm having a heck of a time using Smart Text Reflow, trying to make it work in an efficient manner in InDesign CS4 (I don't use the server product). The 3 page minimum limitation is difficult to deal with. I'm not a programmer and wouldn't know where to even start writing a script to do the equivalent of smart text reflow. Has anyone attempted to write such a script that might be useful to "the rest of us"?
