I package every job I do in InDesign. Every time I do, InDesign adds a space followed by the word Folder to the name of the packaged folder in my job. I have to delete it EVERY time. Is there a script or a way to stop InDesign from adding this to the final packaged folder name?

It would have to be done with a script. There are no built-in controls for changing that feature.

I agree with Steve. In fact, a script can be downloaded from Keith Gilbert's website (look for the word PACKAGE) - http://www.gilbertconsulting.com/resources-scripts.html - make your own folder and it packages without making a folder of its own

Hi Mary,

 

Sorry to hear about your experience. In addition to Steve's correct response, I'd request sharing a feature request in this regard on Adobe InDesign UserVoice(https://indesign.uservoice.com/). This forum is monitored by product team and they might look into it in future releases.

 

Regards,

Ashutosh
