Webinar series: DO MORE with Scripting

“Scripting is the most powerful feature in Adobe InDesign. No other feature can save you as much time, trouble, and money as scripting.”

Scripting may seem daunting to the uninitiated. However, you don’t need a degree in engineering to install, use, create and modify scripts that will allow you automate complex layout and design tasks—all you need is a bit of guidance from a world-renowned scripting guru!
