The time you save and the tutorials you complete as you learn the techniques will be an eye opening experience and something that you will refer back to when you have questions. Learn to "to manipulate and control key elements of the InDesign object model such as documents, preferences, master spreads, pages, page items, text frames, text, graphics, fonts, styles and tables." This is something that is becoming common place for all computer users.Read more ›
The bad (1): the scripts include a goodly number of programming errors (and I can't find where to report them!). For two examples, (a) there is a missing "var" in the first use of "i" in a "for" statement, and (b) several scripts check whether you are on a Windows computer by testing if $.os.indexOf("Windows") > 0 (but the os string returned on a Windows 7 computer begins with "Windows" and therefore the test returns 0 on a Windows computer as well as a Mac. One solution? check for "indows".).
The bad (2): Many of the methods are introduced without the author providing the full syntax. OK, if you go to [...] you will find all the information you need, but the book doesn't point you to it.
I'm a programmer and I find it educational to correct the scripts and natural to search for a full object model reference, so 5 stars for the book if you are a programmer. But if you are not a programmer you'll find it frustrating to try to make the scripts work.
