Chances are that you’ve already discovered the power of scripting the Adobe applications to perform repetitive tasks, simplify complicated ones and reduce technical errors by your design and production staffers. But if your scripting tools do not include event-listeners, you may be overlooking a way to multiply that power. The event-listener does not wait for the Adobe user to remember to run it. Instead it piggybacks on the actions that a designer takes in the normal course of working: opening, saving and close documents, placing library items, copying and pasting and so on.
The Star Tribune uses dozens of event-listener scripts in InDesign and InCopy to handle a wide range of production chores. At this session, we’ll look at a few examples that might be useful to other NCS Content users. If you’re already using event-listeners, come and share your experiences. And if you haven’t jumped into Adobe scripting yet, come to get an idea of what can be done.
