Hello all,

I am trying to figure out if it's possible for an InDesign script to do the following:

 

Search through a multipage document made of tables and search for a row that has a checkbox ticked at the end of it, and export the text from that row to a new pdf?

 

Any advice is appreciated, thanks in advance!

Thanks Manan, i'm just starting on the code as a complete beginner so nothing put together as of yet. There's nothing like jumping in the deep end! If you could point me to some code examples that do a similar thing to what i'm looking into that would be great, otherwise I will continue the search. Thanks heaps!

I will search or write something and let you know. I am a bit swamped so will update this post as soon as I get some time at hand to do the research.
