Join Keith Gilbert for an in-depth discussion in this video Understand the InDesign object model, part of InDesign: Scripting Made Easy.
- Using InDesign manually, the hard way,…without scripting,…usually involves selecting something…before you do something.…For example,…you select a frame and then you resize it.…Or you select some text…and change the font.…Yes, you can write a simple script that…does something to…whatever you have selected at the moment.…But very often you'll need some way for a script to…locate specific objects or specific kinds of…objects within a document.…For example, you might want a script to…locate every table on every page…and remove any empty rows in those tables.…
