The fewer the mouse clicks and keyboard strokes the better, right? That’s why InDesign users love scripts! The ability to use one script to accomplish a series of steps saves time and frankly, it’s pretty cool. Version 15.0.2 of InDesign has incorporated a community script folder that allows us to use scripts created by users and that just might be what we need to automate some of our work. You’ll find the folder under Window>Utilities>Scripts.

A full description of the current community scripts can be found here: https://helpx.adobe.com/indesign/using/scripting.html#community_scripts.
