My InDesign was just upgraded (without any advance warning) to 2021, and my IndexMatic Pro script no longer runs. Are there any IndexMatic users out there? I can't find any way to reach the company (Indiscripts) except trying to reach Marc Autret on Twitter, which didn't get a response.
This is pretty urgent, as I'm just finishing a book and the Index is the last piece. Any help hugely appreciated.
If you have your previous version still installed you can work with that or just install it again:
If you already saved your document in 2021 you have to save a idml to open it in a older version.
And you probably should disable auto update 😉
What do you means, it no longer run? Nothing, or an error message.
Try deleting your InDesign prefereneces files.
The script seems to works fine for me here in CC2021. Do you have the latest version of it [IndexMatic Pro 2.032]?
If it's anything like SonarBookends' indexing plugin, it will not work with 2021. I just found this out with mine and was told I would have to purchase an update to make it work with 2021 (I just bought an update to make it work with 2020!). Needless to say, I'm keeping 2020 so that I can create indexes without having to pay. I find it irritating that these updates keep happening and causing issues like this, but the updates themselves don't really make things better with InDesign. It's like they're updating just to try to make it seem like we're getting our money's worth or something.
