I need help creating what I think will be a very basic script.
I work for a newspaper company and when I'm done with an advert there are 4 things I do the same everytime.
1) Print (same printer everytime)
2) Save on a network directory (same location everytime, the only thing that changes is the filename, a reference number copied from the ad itself which is then pasted from my clipboard)
3) Export to a network directory in .eps format (hit 7 backspaces to erase 7 characters from the clipboard pasted name)
4) Export to a network directory in .pdf format (using same name as was exported in .eps format)
That's it! 4 very simple tasks which get very irritating if you have to do it +-50 times a day.
If anyone can help I'll provide info such as the directory names, printer names, and so on.
I don't think my scripting abilities are good enough for what you require, but I am not sure if this helps...
Because we need to do either of your requests to 20-60 odd inDesign documents nearly every day we use a relatively cheap tool called BatchOutput by Zevrix. Whether it can do it all in a chain one after another I don't know, you'd have to look into it, but it is well worth visiting their website, we couldn't live without the application. http://zevrix.com/batchoutput.php
