reveal name from xml and create pdf

troubles again :wink:

is there a way to reveal a name for my indesign from his imported xml?

  • what am i doing wrong because it won’t generate a pdf…
  • are there better ways to pauze a script than a delay???

This Folder Action handler is triggered whenever items are added to the attached folder.  The script will start the "create template"-workflow and will apply the added file to the corresponding template

property dialog_timeout : 30 -- set the amount of time before dialogs auto-answer.

on adding folder items to this_folder after receiving added_items
	tell application "Adobe InDesign CS3"
		open file "Users:bb:Desktop:cushman test:080351 COVER TEMPLATE.indt"
		delay 3
		tell active document
			repeat with added_item in added_items
				import XML from (added_item as Unicode text)
			end repeat
			export to "Users:bb:Desktop:created" format PDF type using "[High Quality Print]"
		end tell
	end tell
end adding folder items to

the xml
