Call InDesign to Disable Redraw

How do you call out InDesign CS4 to disable the screen redraw during execution of a script?
And will this help the speed of a script running?


set enable screen redraw of script preferences to false

Usually. Is the script saved as an app?

Thank you very much!

the actual wording you need is this:

set enable redraw of script preferences to false

But it works fine and makes the script run much faster.

If I recall correctly the best way to boost the speed is to open the file without a window showing. After the script is done I believe you can show the window, see the “Speed” entry at this link:
