I need to know how to bridge two functions. I need to know how to use tag to style mapping with a batch export/convert script.
I can map styles to tags and export the file to XML. However, I have a large publication with hundreds of files. Instead of doing each file one-by-one, I have a found a great export/convert script that can search sub-folders and batch export to XML:
The issue is I don't know how to apply my style/tag mapping to this script. I need to integrate both functions into one action. Any help would be appreciated.
I am using a Mac with CS5.5 and a PC with CS5.
Peter's script is incredibly useful; I use it daily.
Why do you need to integrate both functions into one action? Why not map styles to tags, then run an export?
I ask because you may not understand what would be involved in pulling this off. You'd be best off contacting Peter directly and being prepared to pay him to do this work for you.
If I open one file I can I map styles to tags then run an export. However, I am unable to map styles to tags when attempting to run a batch. In order to run a batch using Peter's script, no files can be open in InDesign, therefore I have no file to map styles to tags to. I have a script that automates styles to tags mapping, I am just unsure how to use it with Peter's script.
