Join Keith Gilbert for an in-depth discussion in this video Start the Watermark script, part of InDesign: Scripting Made Easy.
- [Voiceover] Are you ready to create another script?…Let's write a script that adds a watermark to each page…of the active InDesign document.…This will give us the opportunity to learn…several new script concepts.…If you search for the word watermark…in the object model viewer,…you'll discover that there is something called…watermark preference object.…This is curious, because InDesign itself doesn't have…any watermark capabilities.…So why is this in the object model?…Well, there's a few little hidden gems in the object model.…For things that can be done via scripting,…that don't appear anywhere in the InDesign interface.…
Unfortunately, the watermarks created with this…watermark preference object have some limitations.…So instead, we're just going to add a watermark…as a normal text frame placed on a new layer…that floats above all the other page items.…Just like our last script, we're going to start…with a new script template that I've provided.…So open the 07_01 new script template in the tool kit.…And then choose File, Save As.…
