It may be because the InDesign you are running this script on (Server) doesn't support any visual settings at all.
Is the entire document created on ID Server? Can you set any defaults at all for new documents?
Thanks for the reply!
The documents aren't created on the Server, only edited, through a system we created. Anyway, we set some preferences like HorizontalMeasurementUnits (because we need to be in pixels) and we are able to set export preferences for when we "preview" the changes made.
Does this help? It seems like it's possible, but that I'm doing something wrong =)
If this were an ID Server setting, how could I change that?
I don't think you can do this in IDS...
we've figured out a solution to this.
What we had to do was add "-previews" into the start up batch file that fires up the instances of ID server (probably not the right forum for this, but I figured I'd post my solution anyway). By default, ID Server assumes "-nopreviews" and therefore grey's out images that you place into documents with scripts.
So by just adding "-previews" into our batch file, problem solved!
