I have a scenario in which I am switching from using QuarkXpress Server to Indesign Server. With Quark Server I am able to request a jpg image from a quark Document. Basically, by providing the right parameters, I can get a JPG preview of what a picture box or text box looks like in the Quark Document.
I need to do something like this with InDesign Server. Is it possible to write a script specifying an Indesign Document and maybe a TextFrameID or PictureFrame ID and get a JPG rendering of it?
I know I can export the whole document as a PDF but I need to be able to get images of single textframes/pictureframes or grouped frames.
Does anyone know if this is possible or how to do this?
thanks in advance!!!
Or maybe the only way to achieve this (hopefully not, though) is to export the whole document as a JPG, and then find a way to programmatically crop the part I need based on the coordinates of the textframe/pictureframe (or grouped framed) that I need?
thanks in advance,
