One of my favorite features of InDesign are scripts. They are tiny little programs that automatically perform repetitive tasks that would otherwise be a lot of manual work. To install a script, we are going to go to Window > Utilities > Scripts. We can also hit Command+Option+F11 on the Mac, or Ctrl+Alt+F11 on the PC. We want to install our scripts inside the User folder in the Script panel. Right now, I don't have any installed. I am going to right-click the User folder and choose Reveal in Finder on the Mac, or Reveal in Explorer on the PC. On my Desktop, I have two scripts that I am going to install.
At the bottom, we can find more information about each of these scripts. Using scripts may sound complicated, but if you think of them as extra features inside InDesign, you'll be happy to find out that they're only a double-click away.
