I have the original javascript ImageCatalog script as well as ImageCatalog-EDITED by Laubender. They have both served their purpose, but with the recent InDesign update, I am encountering an error as shown below:

I don't know if fixing this error will create other errors, and I am not a coder. Any help would be appreciated.

 

Thank you so much... I'm running macOS Catalina v. 10.15.7 if that's helpful.

Ok.... @rob day .... this is most embarassing... None of those scripts were working.... I quit InDesign 2022 and launched InDesign 2021 to get what I needed to do for this project done. Then quit InDesign 2021 and re-launched InDesign 2022 to run your script... and... it worked... so did ImageCatalog! No issues...

 

I guess there were gremlins in my computer!

It should be noted that in the original version of ImageCatalog, the error appears on line 300 instead.

Hi @debbieg53798723 , the ImageCatalog is from 2009, so that might be a problem. You are welcome to try this catalog script, which is working in CC2021:

Thank you, Rob, ImageCatalog and ImageCatalog-Edited both work in 2021 as well. I tried downloading your scripts before I created this thread, but they error out differently in 2022. I need the fix for 2022 to maintain InDesign version synchronicity with my workmates.

Can you show a capture of the error dialog for my script? What OS are you using?
