You can do this from the InDesign Book panel...what do you want the script to do differently?
For these files, we are not using a book, just a single file. Since they are
in seperate text boxes, i'm sure that makes the code a little more
complicated. There is a command for the toc update but I not sure how to
apply it to the document. I do have all the TOC's on a seperate layer for
another reason. So would it be possible to have the update toc command point
to all text boxes on a particular layer? I'm just thinking out loud.
RichardM0701, are you the same person as scottbentley?
I fear your response doesn't make a lot of sense. The easiest way is to put your files into a book, which will not harm them. The easiest script is often no script at all.
I don't understand your comment about separate text boxes, files contain text boxes and definitionally multiple files means multiple separate text boxes.
I do not know what you are referring to with respect to the toc update, perhaps you could reference a particular command or script, or provide a screenshot.
It sounds like now you are interested in updating multiple tables of contents in a single fell swoop -- this would appear to have nothing to do with the original question. If that's the case, please start a new thread.
No, RichardM0701 is not me - and to be honest I have no idea what he is talking about.
My problem is that the flyout on the Book panel will only allow you to export a PDF with all the pages within it.
I need something that will export the book as numerous single PDFs - so if the book has 80pages, I'd like 80 seperate PDFs
My deepest apologies guys, I mixed up the posts. I posted a discussion yesterday on "Update multiple table of contents script".
I am watching this post because I have the same question. I vaguely remember there used to be an option on the earlier CS versions that allowed us to save as single files.
Again my apologies for messing up your post.
