    Export single file IDML package

    jhapak

      Hi,

      I need to know how to export single file IDML package.

       

       

      I am exporting IDML package like this which is generating multiple files IDML package:

      exportFile(ExportFormat.INDESIGN_MARKUP, outputFile, false);

       

       

      InDesign can export the schema:

      app.generateIDMLSchema(Folder("/idml-schema/single"), false);

      but I don't know how to export single file IDML package.

       

      Is it possible?

          What does this language mean?:

           

           

          I am exporting IDML package like this which is generating multiple files IDML package:

          Are you saying you are receiving a .ZIP file which contains multiple files, and that is not what you want?

          That is what exporting as IDML is. If you want it all contained in a single file, you can export a selection as a Snippet (IDMS) or an InCopy Assignment. Those are your only choices.

           

          Also this:

          exportFile(ExportFormat.INDESIGN_MARKUP, outputFile, false);

          Is insufficiently specific. Are you talking about app.exportFIle() or Document.exportFile() or some other method? I suppose the answer happens to be the same here, but it need not be.
