Learn how to obtain, install, use, create, and modify scripts in InDesign.
- [Voiceover] Hi I'm Keith Gilbert and welcome to InDesign scripting made easy. Writing scripts to automate InDesign layout and design is something that you can learn to do. Anyone can learn this, it isn't just for programmers. I'll begin by showing you some examples of what scripts can do then I'll show you how to find scripts written by others, how to install them, and how to use them. Next, you'll learn how to edit an existing script. Finally, I'll teach you how to write your own scripts to solve your particular layout challenges.
This is the really fun part. Throughout the course we'll create some useful scripts together. When we're finished you'll be able to use these scripts as is or modify them further to meet your specific needs. Are you with me? This is a course that I'm really excited about. So let's get started writing scripts for Adobe InDesign.
