Ignoring missing plugin

Hello All,

I noticed that a lot many people have faced this issue wherein we get an InDesign document from someone that uses plugins that we don't have, this causes the missing plugin dialog to be displayed. This missing plugin in document causes some issues like

  • We have to use Save As each time we have to edit and save this document, rather than just using Save. Thus each time we need to browse the location we need to save the document at.
  • If we try to package this document it fails

The workaround for this problem is to save the document as IDML and then resave this back to INDD, this works, but is cumbersome and time consuming if we have lots of documents.

In order to solve all these issues, i have created a plugin that allows you to ignore the missing plugin info. just at the click of a button and all the open document would have their missing plugin info. ignored. This saves you time and all the hassles described above.

You can use a 7 day trial version of the plugin at the following link

GitHub - Manan-Joshi/inexutils: InDesign plugin to ignore missing warnings from documents

I hope this helps the users. Do contact me in case you find any bugs or have any suggestions to improve the solution.
