How to solve this problem: the "right click > > edit script" in the indeisgn script window is invalid

Extendscript toolkit seems to correspond to a specific InDesign version. You can't modify the ID script. Can you open it with other software?

Because there was no response after I clicked "edit script".

How to set it?

It seems that adobe abandoned the extendscript toolkit?

Where can I download the latest extendscript toolkit?

What is your OS? Version of InDesign? When I try in InDesign version 17 on Windows 10 Extendscipt Toolkit version 4.0.0.1 opens as you would expect. It appears to  be a 32 bit application, and installed with a previous version of InDesign and is apparently no longer supported by Adobe.

You can open it with any plain text editor. VS Code has an Extendscript Debugger plugin.

Yes, I found that the extendscript debugger plugin works in vs code.

Right click and the menu is at the bottom.

Thank you very much.
