Updated Build Booklet Script for Windows InDesign 1.5

The BuildBooklet source script.txt file is a Visual Basic version of the source script. (An AppleScript version shipped with Adobe InDesign 1.5 for Windows.) The resource files, BuildBooklet.RES, BuildBooklet.vbp, BuildBooklet.vbw, Form1.frm, and Form1.frx, let you edit the source script using Visual Basic 6.0 or later.

The BuildBooklet.exe file is a compiled version of the script that you can run without having Visual Basic installed on your system. The version of the script on the InDesign 1.5 CD-ROM returns the following error unless Visual Basic 6.0 or later is installed: "Class not registered. You need the following file to be installed on your machine. MSSTDFMT.DLL."

On July 21, 2000, a new version of the script was uploaded that fixed a 430 error that some users experienced.

This update provides the following files:
- BuildBooklet source script.txt
- BuildBooklet.exe
- BuildBooklet.RES
- BuildBooklet.vbp
- BuildBooklet.vbw
- Form1.frm
- Form1.frx

For more information on the Build Booklet sample script see document 324947, "InDesign 1.5 BuildBooklet Sample Script," available from the Support Database at www.adobe.com/support/database.html.

Additional notes

The Adobe InDesign 1.5 Build Booklet sample script lets you create 2-up document impositions, which arrange individual pages so that after printing, folding, and binding, the pages appear in proper sequence. For example, if you have a four-page newsletter with letter-sized (8.5"x11") document pages, you can run the sample script to fit the document on one double-sided tabloid (11"x17") sheet of paper that you can fold in half to make a booklet.

The Build Booklet script, like all scripts, is not supported by Adobe Technical Support or Adobe Developer Support.

Technical Support can do the following:
- Ensure that InDesign and the script are installed properly
- Determine whether you can script a particular InDesign task
- Help you access the scripts included with InDesign
- Provide a list of resources for AppleScript and Visual Basic scripting

Technical Support cannot do the following:
- Debug your scripts
- Answer questions regarding how the scripting language works
- Answer questions regarding how a particular scripting feature works in another application compared with InDesign
- Help you edit, write, or run a script
- Help you modify a script included with InDesign
- Help you with the tools (e.g., Applescript or VB Script) used to create, run, and troubleshoot scripts.
