Hello!

 

I have been recently been given InDesign files to animate with and while I have found a quick way to to convert specific pages to a PSD file. But I am stuggling to find a way to quickly seperate out one layer into multiple layers in InDesign before I take the step to photoshop. Being able to do this will help save me time. Anyone able to help?

 

I am a complete scripting noob and I have seen some people do this with scripts. I have tried coping the code they give and save it out as a script file for InDesign but this hasnt been working.

Create Layers and drag items to those layers.

Hi @Ina23434707erj8 , Layers are document wide objects, while page items, which are listed inside of a Layer, are page spcific. So this document has a single layer, and if I toggle open My Layer, the page items of the active spread are listed:

I could add 3 new layers, name them, and drag page items into a specific Layer:
