Join Keith Gilbert for an in-depth discussion in this video How to run a script, part of InDesign: Scripting Made Easy.
- Every InDesign user should know how to run a script…even if you never ever download a script,…edit a script or write a script,…you can still run one of the 20 plus scripts…that come pre-installed with InDesign.…Scripts are run by simply double clicking on them…in the Scripts panel.…If the Scripts panel isn't displayed on your screen,…choose Window, Utilities, Scripts.…When you first display the Scripts panel,…the Script Label and Data Merge panels…come along for the ride…so you might want to tear the Scripts panel…away from the other two…and close those panels.…
