Indesign Links to Bridge Collection

Post by larsen67 »

A little Bridge start-up script for those who work with Adobe Indesign CS5 files… What it should do once added to Bridge… Is give you a contextual menu when the current document selection is a single Indesign document file '*.indd' from the fly out menu select 'Id Links to Collection' it should then create a Bridge collection of the Linked files it can find… You will get a dialog for any missing links and nothing if none are found… It's pretty fast… And a fairly handy artwork utility… You will need to unzip this file before placing in Bridge…

Thank you very much! Very useful script! But it does have one small problem ... It does not work with file paths that contain non-Latin characters.
See example here http://www.dropmocks.com/mZ4cZ
Illustrator Links to Bridge Collection dont have this trouble.
Thanx for all your work!

Mike, I will take a look at that… Shows my lack of experience… I did only test on my machine… I may have overlooked a decodeURI somewhere… There is a Bridge issue with some characters 'punctuation' where it forgets the paths on re-launch… But there is nothing I can do about that one… I will see if I can fix it…

I've replaced the script… Hope it works for you this time around…
