As far as I know, nothing has changed with how InDesign writes recovery data, nor can I see how a script is likely to help you (but I'm not a scripter), but I'm going to move this thread to Scripting so people who are can help if it's possible.
What exactly do you mean by "aborted"? some sort of crash or force quit? Why are you not saving the file?
Thanks for reply. Aborted means some sort of crash. If indesign get crash i am losing my templates. For this reason i want to save my data side by side. I want to save each and every session whenever i edit the template. If indesign get crash on middle of my work i want to recover my data back.
Please provide me some ideas.
Scripts that perform actions in the background are often problematic.
Why is it not sufficient for you to just frequently hit Save?
In any case, this isn't really practical. You should determine why InDesign is crashing and take steps to work around it or solve the problem.
We would need information about your version of InDesign, operating system, patch level, etc., etc.
I'm also curious why the built in auto recovery is not working. Are the recovery files being corrupted?
Thanks for your suggusion. But i need the script that can store each and every movement what we done in Indesign. Each and every movement means whatever we can work in Indesign that script will save that data side by side. Please provide ideas. I have one idea but i dont know how to impliment that.
My Idea is: Every thing is saved in temporary file we can just save that temporary files using indesign scripts then when we open the indesign that script will be run automatically. And it has to ask the conformation "whether you want to reopen the last session" if you click ok then it will open the last stored temporary file.
Please help me..
Do you understand that Indesign is already doing this automatically?
I know that indesign will reopen last worked template. But it will open just saved templates.If indesign get crash or unfortunately it get closed then we missed that working template. For this reason i am asking some scripts or ideas. Because i face this issue so many times.
As John points out, I think the big problem here is your work flow and your environment. You should be saving on a regular basis, and if there is constant crashing you should determine the cause and fix it. InDesign is EXTREMELY stable most of time. Short of document corruption of some sort or a software conflict it pretty much never crashes. If I see more than one crash a month, including opening files that other users here on the forum submit that have problems, I'm surprised.
Why do you see so many crashes? Is it just InDesign, or is the whole computer going down?
