Join Keith Gilbert for an in-depth discussion in this video How to use the object model reference, part of InDesign: Scripting Made Easy.
- In a previous movie, we saw that most features…of InDesign and every object in a document…can be accessed with a series of…English-language like commands.…Memorizing all of these, however,…would be quite the task.…Thankfully, you don't have to.…Adobe has provided a reference guide…where you can look up the commands that you need.…If you are using the ExtendScript Toolkit,…the reference guide is built right in.…Launch the Toolkit by right-clicking on a script,…and, once the Toolkit is running, go to the Help Menu,…and choose Object Model Viewer.…
