I've inherited a document with over 160 pages and each section has it's own master page - it's a beast of a file and takes an age to load.
Can anyone please let me know if you have available a script that will split the InDesign file into individual files based on the applied master section - the file name can be that of the master page.
Aha! I hope Eugene has not forgotten this thread, even 8 years later!
If you ask id-extra, it doesn't seem to daunting to add it as a fourth extraction option. And given the amount of work it (likely) will save for you, $49 is not that much.
And one more - http://adobeindesign.ru/2009/12/26/sript-extract-pages/
Yeh saw those - they don't do what I need.
I should probably just learn scripting myself.
Eugene, you're totally right!
… If you need such a script today and learn scripting very, very quickly, it's doable! … It's only 15h45 in France!!
I'm 30% through this project doing it manually and will be finished by end of day.
Script would have taken longer to write - and considering it's a one off I wouldn't be willing pay.
Probably never do it again.
I've hit a bump in the road. The original file was setup with incorrect master pages - and the left master head is different to the right.
I've to start over... sigh
Now - I think I found a better way to do this. Export all as single pages using script mentioned
Then I can recombine files using another script.
Thanks for all the help.
