Is this possible to mimic functionality of "Create Alternate Layout" menu action in script?
I'd like to create aternate layout based on another alternate layout.
From what I know there is no such methods in InDesign ExtendScript API.
But - maybe is any way to invoke "Create Alternate Layout" menu action from ID user interface and then change by scripting some parameters in dialog of this action?
why do you think creating an alternate layout is not covered by the ExtendScript DOM ?
See method createAlternateLayout() of the document:
( ACP )
Thank you very much! 🙂 I missed that...
By the way - how can I find such information on https://www.indesignjs.de/extendscriptAPI/indesign-latest?
When I search for "AletrnateLayout" I get only this:
There is no info about creatAlternateLayout() method...
"When I search for "AlternateLayout" I get only this:"
Best ask this Gregor Fellenz who has compiled that DOM documentation.
