İndesign Folder Trigger

when a file is added to a certain folder i want it to be placed in the selected box automatically in indesign, i created a macro but i can't give the file name as variable, endless thanks for every advice

and here is my useless macroindesign.kmmacros (3.8 KB)ift

You need to use the thePath variable in your script to open the file in InDesign.

I think the line after activate needs to be

set itemlink to ( POSIX file thePath as alias )

I have no idea about the rest of the script I'm afraid.
