Hi @Elky267851342yl6 ,

you do not need a script to add fold marks.

Just use the slug area of the document and add fold marks yourself by drawing them at the right position.

Best do that on an extra layer on top of the layer stack. Use your parent pages to "multiply" them for every spread in your document.

 

FWIW: You'll find the Scripts panel under the Window menu:

Window > Utility > Scripts
