    [AS][CS3] word rtf import preferences

    allisonblake Level 1

      Good morning everybody!

      Is it possible to script (with applescript, it's all I know!) to map styles from MS Word (or RTF) to InDesign.

      Obviously, you can do this manually, or you can set a default import preference, but can you use a script to either set the default import options or define the mapping?

      I can't seem to find anything in the dictionary that looks like it might be relevant and the sample script on import preferences doesn't address presets.

       

      Thanks!

          For javascript, it's called "WordRTFImportPreference" (and its helpful Help string tells me this is "Word RTF import preferences." ...).

          It's a property of the application: Application.wordRTFImportPreferences.

           

          It should have been in there somewhere, but I can't find any reference to style mapping or presets -- so apparently, these cannot be scripted.
