Bevel and Emboss (Mac)

This script will take selected text and replicate it (complete with colour) in Photoshop, add selected bevel or emboss settings, then replace the text in InDesign with a Photoshop PDF file. It is designed only for one line of type.

Unzip the file Text Emboss Place the Embossed Text Applescript in the InDesign CS > Presets > scripts folder and the 3dEmboss.js file in the Photoshop CS > Presets > Scripts folder. The Applescript will need to be adjusted if your hard drive is not named Macintosh HD

The same thing happens to me. Running InDesign CS2 and Photoshop CS

Running this in IDCS2, it stops at 'please select some text' with cancel/ok and that's it.

This is whether I select nothing, a word, a line, a text frame, place the insertion point, anything at all, just 'please select some text'.
