There are cases when you need to export sliced PDFs from InDesign. Say you are working on a "WHO is WHO" project and your final document contains 100 pages. But fact is there are 2 pages per person, and that is basically 50 persons. So eventually, you need 50 pdfs nicely named and of course, it will be time consuming and error prone to do it manually. What about using a script? 

These two scripts offer a custom version, with a few additional options, of the basic Illustrator built-in commands “New Artboard” and “Fit to Selected Art”.

Kasyan Servetsky’s website provides and lists hundreds of uploaded scripts of his own and links to scripts available on others websites (more than 300 when Scriptopedia has for now slightly less than 120 posts). Kasyan wrote his scripts set "Fix overflow" to save time when he was working on a book where he needed to resize a countless number of text frames overflown after the point size was increased. Where InDesign lets you extend in the bottom direction a text frame with text overflow (Fitting > Fit Frame To Content), these scripts let you extend in other directions: top, bottom, left, right of course but also diagonally top + left, top + right, bottom + left, bottom + right, as well as simultaneously left + right or top + bottom.

If you ever created GIF files with Adobe products, you know how cumbersome this can be. Many Youtube videos show the necessary steps : create frames in Illustrator, export artboards, import in Photoshop, set up the animation, export the GIF file. And the worst part? Any change and you start this all over again. But that's an old story now!



An original idea from Loic Aigon, designed by Eddy.VH. It 's a scripts library for Desktop Publishing Adobe products. Find Javascript for Photoshop, Illustrator, inDesign and Acrobat or ATN scripts ( Photoshop actions ) you need.
