    Javascript: load external .joboptions file


      Hi all,


      I would like to automate PDF export from Indesign via scripting.

      As I work in a multi-user environment, I intend to store the job options used for the export processes on a shared drive. Thus I may change the .joboptions file centrally for all users.


      Unfortunately, I have yet to find a working script for using an externally stored .joboptions file. I do not want to load it into Indesign, just use it for export.

      I searched the forum and read the ExtendScript documentation but could not come up woth a working script. I hope that one of you has experience with the external loading of .joboptions. I have found a working solution with VBS, but I would really like to use Javascript for this.


      Thank you for your help!
