Solutions Consultant, Typefi

By using improved setups of styles and panels that enable scripting, and by applying GREP (Global Regular Expression Print), it’s possible to save yourself from these endless repetitions. You’ll still be able to produce the same results, but the amount of effort you’ll need to put forth will be greatly reduced.

Automate repetitive graphs and charts in InDesign with scripting

Automate repetitive graphs and charts in InDesign with scripting

Peter Kahrel
Senior Scripting Engineer, Typefi

The adage ‘work smarter, not harder’ often comes to mind when composing documents. Thankfully, scripting can help save the day, as Typefi Senior Scripting Engineer, Peter Kahrel, explains.

Charts in Adobe InDesign are usually produced as separate files and placed in an InDesign document as images. These charts can be high-quality PDF or EPS files, but more often than not they are medium- to low-quality bitmaps.
