Adobe Sample Scripts overview PDF for download

Back in October 2005, I submitted an article for InDesign Magazine providing an overview of the TextCleanup Script that ships as part of the Adobe Sample Script files with InDesign CS2 and the Creative Suite bundle that was published in the Oct/Nov’05 edition of the magazine. I’ve always included a section on Scripts in the InDesign Manual I wrote.

However, the section on Scripts also includes an overview of what the rest of the scripts do. As the article itself has now been released for public download from the InDesign Mag server, I thought it would be nice to provide you with the full script section from my manual . It provides and overview of what all of the scripts do as well as the more extensive overview of the Text Cleanup Script.
