Questions about the automation and extending of functionality through the use of scripts within Adobe InDesign.

InDesign Scripting

Adobe InDesign, like much of Adobe's Creative Suite and Creative Cloud software, is extendable through the use of scripts.

A script is a series of commands that tells InDesign to perform one or more tasks. Scripts can be used to add functionality not easily achievable through the usual tools or to automate time consuming tasks.

Adobe InDesign supports scripts written in AppleScript (on Mac OS), VBScript (on Windows) or JavaScript (on either OS). Sample scripts are included in the Adobe InDesign installer and are installed with the product. More information and the latest available scripting documentation is available at the Adobe Developer Center.
