I foolishly clicked on the Indic Preferences script in InDesign. I'd like to reset my preferences to the standard default English language ones. Is there a quick way to do that? 

 

Thanks!

Regarding this script, I'm a newbie to scripting. This doesn't look like a complete script to me. Is it?

If so, what do I do with it? Save as a text file? Is this a line of AppleScript? Javascript?

 

Can I get some guidance about that? Perhaps there's a link with instructions someplace? Thanks.

Hello Josh,

 

It's a .jsx script. Copy the code into the text edit app and change the format to "Make Plain Text" and save it as a .jsx file.

 

The link below show's how to install the script file
