i've written a simple java script to turn of some settings when InDesign starts up, after that with a alert messagebox to inform users about this.
However, i've faced "timeout while waiting for the engine" error if the alert message box was acknowledged after a certain times (says 20s later)
i've tried puting the alert in a try/catch, but still it did not help to remove the time-out error.
You can try using a Script UI palette (or maybe dialog) instead...
Another option would be to add an event listener to show the alert when the first doc is loaded.
how to resolve this using Script UI palette? i've no experience in this..
can u please elaborate?
