InDesign CS5 Automation Using XML and JavaScript by Grant Gamble

This book is aimed at the general user and provides an introduction to scripting InDesign, using JavaScript to create simple cross-platform solutions. It also gives a general introduction to XML, DTDs and XSLT, before showing how to automate the importing and exporting of XML data.

  • Learn proactively through step-by-step tutorials on creating JavaScript solutions: the “Try it for yourself!” approach allows you to learn how scripts are put together by actually writing them.
  • Create scripts that manipulate text and images, build documents automatically and output them as interactive PDFs.
  • Become familiar with the InDesign object model: as you work through the tutorials, you will make repeated use of the essential syntax for manipulating InDesign objects such as documents, master spreads, pages, text frames, graphics and preferences.
