Question nr.1 - Every time I complete a job in indesign, I need to package it. I do it manually, but is there a way to do it automatic?

Question nr.2 - Is there a possibility to create .inx file from CC indesign? Now I make .idml from CC version, then open it on CS4 and only then convert to CS3.

  • What do you mean by “package”? Is it “collecting all necessary files in one place”? – thebodzio May 8 '14 at 11:30
  • Yes, in indesign: File -> Package – dizzy1 May 8 '14 at 11:31

    Could you please clarify, what do you mean by “automatic” then? The most sure way to automate things in InDesign is by scripting… – thebodzio May 8 '14 at 11:35

I would do this three ways:

  1. Assign a Keyboard Shortcut! to make it quicker accessing the Package button.
  2. Adobe InDesign has built in scripting functions that give you underlying access to key functions. You can script with Javascript cross platform or AppleScript for Mac. Here are two links for that endeavor:
  3. Create simple macros using AutoHotKey, AutoIt, or Atomac
