Hello everyone,

 

I make Adobe InDesign templates and sell them on Adobe Stock Market.

 

There are a lot of repetitive tasks in the work process itself, so I would like to know if you would recommend a script that would make my work easier and faster?

 

Thanks a lot in advance for the answers.

Greetings,
Boris

Completely depends on what you want to automate. Peter Kahrel has written a bunch that are available for free here: https://creativepro.com/files/kahrel/indesignscripts.html

 

There's also this repository: https://redokun.com/blog/indesign-scripts

 

Or there are bespoke, custom solutions.

You are asking "what is the best way to get from point A to B" 😉 without specifying location of points A & B, when, if you are alone or you need to move a whole soccer team, etc. 😉 

 

You need to give more information - do you need to automate texts, graphics, importing elements, exporting, colors, etc. and what platform. 

Can automate anything - as long as it doesn't require A.I.

Furthering the brilliant collections shared by @brianp311 if you want to discuss any specific use case that you don't see catered in any of the scripts then do share it with us. There are many scripters that frequent these forums, you will get great suggestion on how to go about your scenario.
