With this post, I would like to ask a question.
If you use multiple action folder scripts that processes multiple files using only 1 Indesign application, can problems occure when multiple files are submitted at the same time?
How does applescript/indesign handles multiple use of the same application? Will an error be trown? Or do I have to build a check mechanisme to know if the app is "in use"?
Has the Indesign application a property "busy" or "In use"?
You can check processes with "System Events' but random events kicked off by users adding files to directories is going to be difficult to keep on top of… I have not tried what you are intending but would expect a script to time out if another script is already using this process…
Thanks for your feedback.
If build a lock/unlock mechanisme in my folder action script to prevent simultaneous use of Indesign. In my script I write the current application state into a textfile.
