Event scripts

Event scripts are scripts that run automatically when an event is triggered in InDesign: a document is saved, closed, an image/text/Excel spreadsheet is placed into the document, etc.

To install such a script: copy it into the Adobe InDesign XX\Scripts\startup scripts folder and restart InDesign

To uninstall it: remove it from the Adobe InDesign XX\Scripts\startup scripts folder and restart InDesign

More details on startup scripts folder are here.

These are ‘quick & dirty’ experimental scrips: people asked me to write them and I did so. I don’t promise they would work for you as you want it. Feel free to use them as a starting point, or an example, and adjust them according to your needs.
