InDesign Export prompts Save As

Hey All,

 

Everytime I export from InDesign, even when my file is currently saved... InDesign likes to warn me that my file hasn't been saved. I'm sometimes juggling quite a few projects, so there's certainly instances I forget to close the window right afterwards, that's uncertainty can kick whether or not changes were really made or not to a project. 

 

This is an extremley annoying feature, and I'm wondering if there's anyway to disable it, Thanks!

Hi @Nick Cachiaras , The last used export settings are saved with the document, so if you export without making any additional changes to the Export settings dialog, the file would not show as altered (and asterisk in the title bar).

 

If it’s a real problem you could force a save after every Export via a startup script, I can post a sample script if you are interested.

Might be interested in your script if you have something that'd work...

 

This is a typical workflow for me:

  • Open Draft
  • Save Draft
  • Export for PDF Proof (PDF that visually is closests to Finished Copy, typically doesn't have bleeds)
  • Re-Save, because the asterick shows up....
  • Once approved, re-open Draft, Export for Production
  • Re-Save

 

There something I'm missing here?

This would save after every Export—including JPEG, PNG, EPS etc.

 

 

For it to always run save it to your startup Scripts folder, or you could run it from the Scripts panel and it will only listen for Exports until you quit ID:

 

Startup:

Applications⁩ ▸ ⁨Adobe InDesign 202X⁩ ▸ ⁨Scripts⁩ ▸ ⁨startup scripts⁩

 

Session:

Applications⁩ ▸ ⁨Adobe InDesign 202X⁩ ▸ ⁨Scripts⁩ ▸ ⁨Scripts Panel⁩

 

 

#targetengine "saveExport"
var el = app.eventListeners.add("afterExport", saveAfterExport);

function saveAfterExport(e){
    e.parent.save()
}
