Is it possible to automatically export elements/pictures from Adobe Library?

I have a lot of elements/logos in Adobe Library, is it possible to automatically export elements/logos from there to my Indesign layout page?

 

For example, I have a product catalog where it is specified for each product that a certain manufacturer's logo must be used. Is it possible to make an "ID entry" in the library with specific element/logo and then for example a script can retrieve the logo to the text frame or some other way?

This is the InDesign forum and discussing it here doesn't reach the people who work on the CC Library.

To request the feature for Libraries you should go to the Adobe Collaboration Experiences user group:

I have never heard of a way to script the use of elements in the Creative Cloud libraries to use them in an application file, I'm afraid.

The requirement of using Library elements is what blocks this concept, but I think it would be relatively easy to use scripting, Object Styles and maybe even GREP styles to replace an ID marker with a specific, locally accessible graphic element. This might even be a perfect task for @Robert Tkaczyk's InDesign automation tool.

The point was to make use of the Adobe library so that you wouldn't have to use the files locally + it would be available to all team members. Because Adobe does not officially support working from the server.

 

Otherwise, Adobe doesn't make enough use of the Library, this would make things possible if you could export objects from the Library. Now we have to manually drag objects from there when this could be automated and speed up folding more.

 

Would this be a new feature for the Library so that objects can be called from there, please?
