JavaScripts for Productivity • InDesign CC 2017
How to install InDesign JavaScripts
Scripting is a tool for performing repetitious tasks more quickly. Scripting can drive
a common task or can be more elaborate, resembling a plug-in. Scripts are simply
text and can be written in JavaScript script language (cross-platform and preferred),
AppleScript (Mac only), and VBScript (Windows only). You can write your own scripts,
but it is easier to run scripts others have created. They are easily copied from a web
page and pasted into any text editor and saved with a .jsx filename extension. To use
them, they have to be put into a specific folder within your computer. Copy/paste or
drag/drop your JavaScript files to this folder location:
[Mac OS X] Users/UserName/Library/Preferences/Adobe InDesign/Version 12.0/en_US/Scripts/Scripts Panel
[Windows 10,8,7] Users\UserName\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\InDesign\Version 12.0\en_US\Scripts\Scripts Panel
An easy way to find this location within your folders is to right-click over a script in the
Scripts panel within InDesign and choose Reveal in Finder (Mac) or Reveal in Explorer
(Windows).
You will likely want to create sub-folders for the sake of organization and to match the
version of InDesign the script was originally written for. If you have a CC 2017 script,
put it into a folder named Version 12.0 Scripts. If you have a CC 2015 script, put it into
a folder named Version 11.0 Scripts. If you have a CC 2014 script, put it into a folder
named Version 10.0 Scripts. If you have a CC script, put it into a folder named Version 9.0
Scripts. If you have a CS6 script, put it into a folder named Version 8.0 Scripts. If you have
a CS5.5 script, put it into a folder named Version 7.5 Scripts. If you have a CS5 script,
put it into a folder named Version 7.0 Scripts. If you have a CS4 script, put it into a folder
named Version 6.0 Scripts. If you have a CS3 script, put it into a folder named Version
5.0 Scripts. If you have a CS2 script, install it in a folder named Version 4.0 Scripts. If you
have a CS script, put it in a folder named Version 3.0 Scripts. (There are a few changes in
the way scripts are handled between versions, and some simpler scripts will run in a
newer version even without specially-named folders.) These script folders are all put
under the Scripts Panel folder.
Mike’s Find/Change by List 2017
Mike’s Find/Change by List 2017
This is an update and expansion of the FindChangeByList that comes installed with InDesign CC 2017 and many earlier
versions. Mike Witherell’s version fixes several shortcomings in the original script and doubles on its text cleanup tricks.
Free for the download, it comes in a .zip file, and brief instructions are included inside.
