I think you still remember my old post about Auto Apply Object Style to Placed Image.
That’s great workaround, but I’ve “found” even better one through scripting! Scripting is just awesome! 😀 So many things can be done with just few lines of code. 😉
WARNING: This only works with InDesign CS5!
So, let’s see how to use it!
Have you ever placed bunch of images and after placing you selected all of them and applied same Object Style? If you even tried to select Object Style before placing, don’t bother anymore, it can’t be done. It’s a bug!
But, fortunately Michael Ninness (VP of Content, lynda.com, former InDesign Product Manager, designer, author) mentioned a little “easter egg” in InDesign CS4 that (sort of) fixes the bug and it’s also working for CS5!
So, let’s see how to make it work! 🙂
