  2. Preferences folder access via ExtendScript with macOS Catalina public beta 3

    I've installed macOS X Catalina public beta 3 and I have an annoying issue with scripting.
    I can't access to the user's preferences folder via Javascript even if I've assigned to InDesign full file system access in the security panel of the system preferences.
    I can't read any files inside the user's Library so that I can't load a GREP query for example.

    Hope you find a fix on this.

  3. 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.

  4. ExtendScript feature: asynchronous PDF export for indb books

    I'd like to see an asynchronous export option for indb books as it exists for indd documents because why not.
    Currently I work with 10 indb projects and I'd like to export them by 4 using all the power of my 4-core cpu, but I can only export them one by one due to lack of asynchronous export option.
    At the same time I'm able to export 4 indd files using existing asynchronousExportFile() method.

  7. 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

  9. Default Composer doesn't change via SDK

    If I change the Default Composer via the Preferences Advanced Type dialog then query it in a script using app.textDefaults.composer I can see it has changed. However when I change it via a script it appears to change when I query it again but it is not changed in the prefs dialog and if I create a new document it is not the default composer. This is all with no open documents btw.

  11. InDesign Scripting bug? Master Pageitems of specific Layer as Collection

    I want to see all 'master' page items of all master spreads on a specific layer using code like this:

    app.activeDocument.layers.itemByName('existLayerName').pageItems.everyItem().getElements();

    Even such a layer contains 'master' page items, this code always returns an empty array!

  12. Crash when adding a "checkbox" into a "cell" of a table

    I'm trying to add a Checkbox into a cell of a table with JavaScript.
    When executing the code InDesign crashes.

    With my Script I'm looking for certain text in a table, delete it from the cell and then want to add a checkbox instead. So my code is looking something like this:

    var found = app.documents[0].findGrep();
    found[0].parent.contents = "";
    var myBox = found[0].checkBoxes.add();
