Hi,

 

I'm facing a new issue.

I can't save find/change query with InDesign Server.

My code in VBS : 

ID.FindTextPreferences = idNothingEnum.idNothing
            
ID.FindTextPreferences.FindWhat = "TEST"
ID.SaveFindChangeQuery "TEST", idSearchModes.idTextSearch

 

No error detected but the xml file is not created.
Nothing here : C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe InDesign Server 2022\Presets\Find-Change Queries.
Nothing in user folder.

 

Do you have the same issue ? Do you know where files are created ?

 

Thanks

 

Cyril

Search might not reveal results from some locations(atleast on a MAC this happens), so I would not be bothered much about it. Now regarding difference between IDS and desktop, I think the difference should be in the name of the application, so the paths I gave are worth investigating. Another point could be permission issues, did you try launching IDS with admin priveleges?

Hi @cyriln53424740,

According to this article, the path should be the either of the two mentioned below

Windows XP :- Documents and Settings\[username]\Application Data\Adobe\InDesign\[Version]\[Language]\Find-Change Queries\[query type]

Windows Vista and Windows 7 :- Users\[username]\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\InDesign\[Version]\[Language]\Find-Change Queries\[query type]

Look at these locations

Hi Manan Joshi,

These locations are for InDesign. I'm talking about InDesign Server.

If i search my file (*.*.xml) in all c:\ drive, i find nothing.

Bug ?

 

Thanks
