Link any script into your menu

A number of reasons made me take this script from the server. I apologise for any resulting inconveniences.

Define cap- or x-height, not the slug

Occasionally I get asked if there is a way to define the actual letter-height instead of the slug-heigt.

Only if you know the proportions of e.g. cap-height to slug-height and enter something like "12pt * 0.671". That's obviously a bother since you first have to find out that proportion.

A script can do the maths for you, as usual.

How InDesign searches for Links

When you deliver an InDesign document including images it is not always apparent if the images will be found automatically on the receiving end or not. Bob Bringhurst explains the rules of the search algorithm.

Fill Frames by Layer

The Script on http://www.indesign-faq.de/en/images_by_contextmenu is rather useful to create freely designed contact sheets. With enough images to fill more than one page it is not quite up to the task. That‘s what fillGraphicFramesByLayer is for.

Place Images by Contextmenu

Why can’t you place images via the contextmenu of a frame? This proofs to be quite handy, especially if some intelligent rules are involved concerning the number of frames selected and the number of images selected.
