Hi All,

 

I see that when we tagged content then a tag marker character gets inserted and a tag is shown in xml structure.

Is there exist a way using which I can insert only tag marker character and it should not be shown in xml structure and should be non printing.

see the tagMarker.png for character that I am looking for.

Do I need to add this character as hidden character in my custom plugin?

or there exist work around in sdk plugin or in scripting

Regards,

Alam

With scripting, applying a tag will generate xml structure just like as if the user did it manually.

if you want "tagging" without structure, then yes, you have to go through InDesign SDK and have your own tagging solution.
