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? 

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.

This script enables to change a paragraph rule below to a rule above visually identical (in the case of a single-line paragraph) or conversely.

Mikhail Ivanyushin recently provided for free a set of scripts for InDesign that he wrote for his use, intended to comply, for page layout, with a number of ideal proportions drawn from his lifelong designing experience and some reference books that influenced him during these years. Each script comes with a pdf containing detailed explanations.
