Hi everyone,

 

I'm facing a very strange issue on InDesign Server CC 2021.

 

I can't find color using app.findTextPreferences.findWhat...

I receive an error saying that "findWhat" is not part of object "findTextPreference"... but yes it is !

It works on InDesign CC 2021 on my computer but not on InDesign Server.

 

I think there are a lot of issues around colors because i can't remove colors too.

example : myOldColor.remove(myNewColor)

or 

myOldColor.remove


Error : Can't remove this color

 

Can you help me ?

 

Thanks.

 

Cyril

Hi,

 

Errors are visible on a new simple document.
With language VBScript, example :

 

Set ID = CreateObject("IndesignServer.Application.2021")

'New Document
Set CurDoc = ID.Documents.Add

'New color
Set NewColor1 = CurDoc.Colors.Add
NewColor1.Name = "Test"
NewColor1.ColorValue = Array(71, 20, 100, 10)

'Init Color FindWhat    ----> ERROR
ID.FindColorPreferences.FindWhat = NewColor1 

'Add textframe on the first page
Set CurItem = CurDoc.Pages.Item(1).TextFrames.Add

'Fill textframe with new color
CurItem.FillColor = NewColor1

'Delete color     ----> ERROR
NewColor1.Delete

Same error...

Hello,

 

I recently upgraded to InDesign Server 2021.

 

I have the same issues when removing a swatch with the remove method.
I got the error 'This color cannot be removed.'.
But with the same script with InDesign Client, the color is removed.

 

Regards,

Hi,

 

Do you find an other way to remove/replace color ?

 

"Find and replace" color is also not working...

 

Than you
