    Scripting plugin

    Roy Marshall Level 1


      I am not sure if this is the correct forum for this topic, but I will give it a go.

      I recently saw a post from Anne Marie Conception (InDesign Secrets) about a cool Adobe Air app to create custom panels in CS5 (Configurator).  This works really well, but my clients I script for do not use CS5 yet. 

      What would be the best way to write a simple, plugin for CS3/CS4 to launch scripts?  Should I maybe be looking at an Applescript App/Automator/or (Preferably) a native InDesign Plugin?

      Obviously a free solution using current technology would be nice, but keen to hear any thoughts on this.


      The main aim for this is to brand the script process for the client, and to be able to link to scripts on a server not relying on the script folder.
