I have an already designed .indd file. I want to see the script generated in the backend whlie creating the same. I sit possible to view the code behind it? I want to write custom scripts that automate this process of creating more .indd files of the same type.

Hi @Swastik5F8D,

There is no script generated automatically when you design a creative in InDesign. You will have to learn programming and JS along with InDesign DOM to start scripting and automating your design workflow. For InDesign DOM you can refer the following link
