    need javascript to automate hiding a layer (INDD CS4)

    ryan.kiefer

      Hi,

       

      We've been having a problem lately with our writers remembering to kill the DRAFT watermark layer before they export the print and web pdfs.

       

      I need a script that will automatically hide the "watermark" layer in the current document, save the document, then start the File > Adobe PDF Presets > [my_preset].

       

      This would save our doc controllers and writers a lot of headache, but being inexperienced with javascript (okay, all programming), I really don't know how to write something that would do this, but I've come to understand that any process can be automated in indesign.

       

      Can anyone help me out?

       

      Thanks!

      Ryan
