    How to ignore a specific document layer

    Seth McGraw Level 1

      I have a javascript that performs some flight checking functions, and outputs a properly named pdf file among other things. Depending on the client's request, a layer may reside on our templates called "Panel Layer". This layer may contain up to 96 images per page and reside in multipage documents as well. These images have already been checked for viability and thus do not need to go through the scrutinization of the script. I would like check for the existence of this layer and to totally have the script ignore any content on a layer named as such. This will greatly optimize the time needed to run the script.

       

      How might I go about this?

       

      InDesign CS1-CS5.5

       

      I understand that the syntax will probably differ greatly with CS and CS2, so how about just CS3 and up.

       

      Thanks
