Hi Peter

 

I am having issues with your batch convert script.
https://creativepro.com/files/kahrel/indesign/batch_convert.html

 

I keep getting this error:
undefined is not an object (line 1149)

 

Could you tell me how to get it running again in Indesign 2023 please.  I have redownloaded, re-installed and restarted and keep getting the same error.

Charlize -- Delete the batch_convert.txt file, you can see it in the Scripts panel. Then try the script again.

What version of InDesign are you using? The last update Peter Kahrel made to that script was in September 2022, and so if you are using the latest version of InDesign, it might have a problem. 

 

If that is the case, here is something you could try: Open the Scripts Panel folder and make a folder named "Version 17.0 Scripts" and move the script under that folder. Then try to run the script.

 

Mind you, this is a guess.

Hi Mike. Thanks for the suggestion. But the script works in CS4 and later so versioning isn't the problem.
