Automatische Sortierung/ arrange Logos

Hallo ich möchte in indesign eine tabellenartige Auflistung von jpg-Logos in alfabetischer Reihenfolge (diese Tabelle geht über zwei Seiten und hat ca. 10 Spalten und pro Seite ca. 20 Zeilen) geschickt updaten. Das heißt, es entfallen immer mal Logos und es werden neue Logos eingesetzt. Die alphabetische Reihenfolge soll aber immer beibehalten werden. Im moment schiebe ich die Logos immer neu um, was sehr zeitraubend und aufwändig ist, besonders wenn erst ein Logo entfällt, kurze zeit später aber ein neues hinzukommt. Wie gesagt, es ist noch keine Tabelle, es sind Logos die in einem tabellenartigen Raster gestaltet sind. Gibt es einen Weg zur Automatisierung? Oder ein schnellerer Weg?

Hello, I would like to update a table-like listing of jpg logos in alphabetical order in indesign (this table extends over two pages and has approx. 10 columns and approx. 20 rows per page). This means that logos are removed from time to time and new logos are inserted. However, the alphabetical order should always be maintained. At the moment I am always rearranging the logos, which is very time-consuming and time-consuming, especially when a logo is dropped and a new one is added a short time later. As I said, it's not a table yet, it's logos that are designed in a table-like grid. Is there any chance of automation? or a quicker way?

Hallo @annej64116338 ,

ist der Name des Logos in einer der Tabellenzeilen eingetragen?

Arbeitest Du mit einer echten InDesign.-Tabelle? Oder mit Absätzen und Tabulatoren?

 

Falls mit Absätzen und Tabulatoren, und unter der Voraussetzung, dass der Name am Anfang eines Absatzes steht, dann kann ein Script, das mit InDesign mitgeliefert wird, die Sortierung übernehmen.

 

Scripts panel > Application > Samples > JavaScript > SortParagraphs.jsx

 

Before starting the script select the paragraphs you want to sort.

Use Sort method "Retain Formatting (slower)" when working with the script.

See screenshots from my German InDesign:

Hallo, bisher ist alles noch als Grafiken im indesign „so“ platziert weil der Wunsch nach Alphabetischer Ordnung neu ist und wir neue Logos ganz pragmatisch an der Stelle wo andere entfielen ersetzt haben . Ich könnte/müsste das dann noch anpassen so wie es am besten funktioniert.

Hallo @annej64116338 ,

Du könntest auch die ganze Zeile mit allen Einträgen plus das platzierte Logo in einer InDesign-Tabelle verwalten. Allerdings müssten wir dann zum Sortieren nach z.B. des Namens der Datei ein anderes Skript finden oder schreiben, das Tabellenzeilen sortieren kann. Die Grafik des Logos wäre Teil einer Tabellenzelle.

 

Da wäre ein Skript von Peter Kahrel die erste Wahl: tablesort.jsx

Well.

Just tested Peter Kahrel's tablesort.jsx script on an InDesign table with InDesign 2024.

 

It did not work as expected:

Seems that graphic cells will throw an error if one sorts with option "Formatted text".

FWIW: It will crash InDesign if "Formatted text" is not enabled and graphic cells are present.

 

However, when working with anchored graphic frames in text cells instead of graphic cells, the table can be sorted by the script as expected. See screenshots below.

 

Table selected. Table has one header row and four not sorted body rows. Column four contains text cells with one anchored graphic frame in every cell. An anchored graphic frame could contain a logo graphic. Script is started and shows a GUI with a variety of options. The most important one is "Formatted text" that I enabled:

After pressing OK the sorted result is that:

Do you work on a Mac - or do you have access to a PC?

 

I have ideal tool for you - not free but extremely powerful - but it's PC only...

 

Before:

RobertatIDTasker_0-1717542221083.png

 

After - each graphic is placed in a separate Paragraph - 4x column TextFrame:

RobertatIDTasker_1-1717542349593.png

 

Or as characters - with double space as a separator:

RobertatIDTasker_2-1717542468951.png

 

You can filter by any property you want - to include / exclude objects.

Objects can be anywhere in the document - one a page, pasteboard, anchored in the text, in a cell, part of the group, whatever - and be whatever type - rectangles, ovals, TextFrames, Groups, PDFs, Images, whatever.

You can sort whichever way you want - by name, type, source folder, size kB/width/height/scale, color profile, etc. - use multiple sorting keys - and do whatever you want with the objects before they are placed - copy or cut, resize, rotate, crop, apply ObjectStyle, etc.
