Turing an applescript into an InDesign Plugin...

Is this possible to do? This would allow the user to select a menu item in InDesign vs. having to click an applescript from the dock.

Browser: Safari 523.10.6
Operating System: Mac OS X (10.5)

adding custom menu items in applications is not possible (in most cases),
but you can activate the global script menu in /Applications/AppleScript/AppleScript Utility.app,

you can run an applescript directly from within Indesign. If you select the window menu there’s an option called Automation and then a sub menu with an option called scripts. This displays any scripts that are in your applications Indesign/Presets/Scripts folder.
Hope this helps?

I’m almost certain that you can make your own menus in CS3 but I could be wrong I’ll go check it out and get back to you


so yes indeed you can but only with CS3. you need to look up event listeners and how to create menu items
