Does anyone know of a script that will allow you to export Incopy stories from an Indesign Book containing multiple INDD files?

Hi Judy!

I'm testing one now and will share if I can get it to work.

Meanwhile, do you have a script that will export the stories from one  INDD  file?

Hi Judy,

Please refrain from sharing your personal details on a public forum like this one. I am sure Anne will come up with a solution soon.

You can download it here: http://indesignsecrets.com/downloads/export_book_ICML.jsx.zip

After you install it, open a Book panel (indb file) and double-click the script. It'll ask you where you want the stories exported to. Then it opens each doc in the Book and exports the document page stories (not master page ones) to ICML. It gives them a name that includes the frame ID, so it looks a little weird. You'll need to close the INDD files and save changes yourself.

Thank you, Anne Marie. The script worked like a charm. This will save designers who for various reasons have to use many Indesign files for a single publication lots of time exporting Incopy stories.
