  1. Bring back ExtendScipt Toolkit for High Sierra and InDesign CC 2018.

    Bring back ExtendScipt Toolkit for High Sierra and InDesign CC 2018. The older version of ExtendScript works but the newer does not work. What is the reason for discontinuing ExtendScripts Toolkit? I have 12 designers with a subscription for each one of them and 6 of those designers rely on ExtendScript Toolkit for one of their workflows.

    • Add a Search field to the Scripts panel!

      I have A LOT of scripts. I try to organize them by folders, but I still waste time looking for the right script. A SEARCH field, like in the Fonts panel, would be VERY much appreciated. Thanks!

      • Script Label Manager

        We use scripts and script labels on a daily basis! It would be absolutely FANTASTIC to have a window (similar to LINKS) that when opened, displays ALL script labels in the board/file, along with a link to where it is in the page (selects the item that's labelled).

        It is extremely tedious to use script labels when there is no way to properly organize and manage them.

        Please please make this Script Label Manager a feature!

        • Scripts integration in the InDesign Templates

          Currently we're running the scripts for particular templates separately, but it'll be good, if we have an option in InDesign to integrate those scripts in the same templates. So running of scripts will become mandatory without depending on the users to run.

          • Script Manager

            Please add Script Manager (like ScriptBay; LAScripts, ScriptMix) but more powerful.
            So we can sort, group, edit, assign hotkeys, label scripts. Create UI pallets with icons. Etc. Thanks!

            • Make layercompositions targetable with scripting

              I want to change my applied alpha-mask (psd/tif).

              What I have to do is browse to the image, reimport it (with import options true), just to select another alpha mask.

              While scripting this, I found out, that the DOM is missing the layercomps. If a layercomp was set in InDesign away from default, re-importing a image by script will losse the selected layercomposition.

                  • Create an IntelliJ / Webstorm plugin which supports Adobe scripting

                    Please consider creating an IntelliJ / Webstorm plugin which allows the scripting an debugging of all Adobe applications like Adobe Indesign, Photoshop, Illustrator, Acrobat, ...

                    This could be a viable alternative to the current ExtendScript Toolkit application, which is outdated, full of bugs, and lakes important scripting features.

                    The new plugin should support ...
                    - All Adobe DOM's
                    - Full code autocompletion
                    - Code hints
                    - Connecting to the Adobe applications, allowing real time debugging...
                    - ...
