    Import tagged text as notes (JS CS3)

    jmw107 Level 1

      Hi -- Does anyone know if there is a way to use any kind of adobe tagged text mark up (or any other kind of markup) to convert specified text into notes when importing an xml text file or placing a text file into inDesign?

       

      thanks in advance

          There's no native support for notes in InDesign Tagged Text nor in XML import, no.

           

          You can probably leverage InCopy's INCX file format to do this, but it's probably not convenient.

           

          This doesn't have anything to do with scripting, though.

           

          Of course, you could solve the problem with scripting though -- you could put some unique tag of your choosing around a note and then go through the imported file with a script and convert things within that tag into Notes.
