Apologies if I didn't hit on the right search terms to have answered this myself.
I'm applying a couple of scripts to each document in a book file, and found myself wondering if there's a way to run a script so it alters all the .indds at once.
Is there a trick for this?
If you are talking about running your own script, you can write a loop to go through all the documents in a book.
If you are talking about running Formatting Tools (now called Style Utilities) on multiple documents, it can't be done. It is not a bad idea to offer that though, and I think I'll put it on my to-do list...
BTW, I recommend updating to the latest version. There's additional functionality in the newer versions and the update is free on the same version of InDesign... (The Publisher Suite plus Proper VJ should be a drop-in replacement for InBook.)
Thank you, Harbs.
