What is Adobe Indesign Scripts?

InDesign scripts are some coded text files saved to our system. To appear a script in the Scripts panel of InDesign’s user interface, it need to have a specific file extension (if it doesn’t have one already). After that, these scripts have to be saved in a specific location. Which file extension it has depends on the type of script file . AppleScripts typically have the extension “.applescript”, VBScripts use “.vbs”, and JavaScripts use the extension “.jsx”. Note that JavaScripts can also use the file extension “.js”, but that can cause confusion with other JavaScript “flavors” on your system (notably Microsoft’s JScript, on Windows systems).
