How might I go about querying an .indd doc to find out its creator version?

 

I'm rewriting some of our scripts to get up-to-speed with latest InDesign server, and I need to know how to determine which version of InDesign created a document.

 

Mebbeh it's as simple as mydoc.creator? Hahh. No way. Anybody know?

 

TIA

Did verify the code by Loic on the post I mentioned and it seems to work fine, though I don't have very old documents to check thoroughly.

Hi Manan,

I ran Loic's code with InDesign 2022 for testing a CS3 document.

The alert returned "Adobe InDesign 5.0". And that's OK so far.

 

If one needs more information and a protocol of saved states perhaps, one could use Werner Perplies' WpsIndFileIdentifier script: https://weepee.de/forum/indesign/viewtopic.php?f=60&t=107

 

Regards,
Uwe Laubender
