Adobe InDesign: SDK/Scripting Bugs and Features

  1. Ability to identify if a Story is TOC_STORY, which TOC_STYLE is in use

    Using InDesign Server (or scripts in InDesign Desktop) via JavaScript, it would be very helpful if there was an API/mechanism for discovering details for table of contents usage.

    Current Issue:
    It doesn't look like there is a way to see if a TOCStyle is actually used anywhere. A document can contain multiple TOCStyles, but it's possible only one is placed in the document. Likewise, it doesn't appear there is a way to resolve the TOCStyle being used for a Story that is of type StoryTypes.TOC_STORY.

    Proposed solution(s):
    - Add a Stories property to the TOCStyle object that contains references to…

  2. Make the (Black) Color Swatch a TRUE BLACK

    In the Appearance Panel, the (Black) color swatch is not a TRUE BLACK color and when this color swatch is used and a file is exported to PDF, Rich black is not achieved.

    The attached document shows a few shapes that are black. The top right is a true black color and the color swatch had to be changed from the standard (BLACK) color swatch in order to be achieved when exporting to a PDF. The left and bottom color swatches have the (Black) color swatch from the appearance panel applied.

    Please, Please, Please, make the (Black) color swatch a…

  6. InDesign Server + Catalina = heavy permission problems

    --- Update: PROBLEM SOLVED. See comment below ---

    We have run into to serious problems with running InDesign Server (IDS) on Mac OS 10.5.x Catalina: The problems are somehow related to file permissions and will only show when the IDS instances are started by launch agents (or launch deamons).

    This problem manifests itself in several ways we have encountered – using IDS CC 2020 as well as IDS 2019:

    1. Documents can only be opened from a limited number of locations – actually only one location as far as we know, the /private/tmp/ directory on the local machine. When one of…

  7. HyperlinkTextDestination elements missing from anchored objects in exported icml

    When exporting icml from InDesign, anchored objects with hyperlink text destinations inside of them are missing those destinations.

    Steps to reproduce:

    1. Make a new document with text.
    2. Insert an anchored text frame with text into the story.
    3. Insert a hyperlink text destination into the anchored text frame.
    4. Create a hyperlink from outside of the text frame to inside of it.
    5. Export icml of the story.

    In the exported icml, the hyperlink destination will be missing and the link will be broken.

  9. The scale X percentage option shold have short key so that I don´t have to write 100% manually in the meny while working in prepress.

    The scale X percentage option shold have short key so that I don´t have to write 100% manually in the meny while working in prepress. When I update links in my prepress documents the scale down to 91% and that´s really frustrating that I can´t just mark them and use a short key to resize them to 100%. Especially if you have updated for example 50 links.

  11. Запись операций

    Возможно создать вкладку с записью операций, чтобы принцип работы был реализован, как в Photoshop.
    А также панель с историей работы в файле.
    Скрипт работы с формулами непосредственно в самой программе InDesign.

  12. problems with work speed

    I change formats of single letters or total paragraphs in a book. If I do this at a start of a indesign file (70 pages, 270 footnotes, no pictures, only opened part of the book) it lasts up to 40 seconds until I can work further. If I do this further to the end of the document the delay is lessens.
    My Win-10-PC has 16 GB RAM and i7-processor
