Hi,
Everytime Adobe releases a new Indesign update & we prepare a book for print, we need to save each file seperately, again.
It is very time consuming as the book consists of hundreds of files.
How can we avoid this?
 
Thanks.

Don't upgrade until the project is done.

This would be expected behavior for major version upgrades (16.x to 17.x), but not for incremental updates within a version.

Are you saying it happens when doing an incremental update?

Hi @vivis10433457 , If the problem is with files last saved in an earlier full version opening renamed with a [Converted] suffix forcing a Save As on a regular Save, you can override that behavior via a script.

I assign this script (which overwrites the opened file with no dialog) the Command-S key command:

 

 

var doc = app.activeDocument;
var fp = doc.filePath;
var n = doc.name;

if (doc.converted) {
    doc.save (File(fp + "/" + n))
} else {
    doc.save()
}

 

 

 

Just keep in mind that the forced Save As is a safety feature, which gives you the option to leave the document from an earlier version unchaged in the event that you have problems with the new app version. I have an automated incremental backup system, and can go back in time and retrieve the earlier version, so I’m not very concerned with overwriting the earlier version with a script.

 

If you are not familiar with scripting I can post a compiled version for you to copy into your Scripting panel.
