Send from your Dropbox email a request for the plugin to
Javascript plug-in for Bridge and InDesign CS6 and CC. Run on Mac OS. The InDesign startup script is open source.
This plug-in plays more than one task, but the primary one is to manage and distribute giant and complex tree of files among many computers and syncing them from one to the others depending on requesting.
Another task is managing InDesign links and fix missed ones automatically by tracing any changes of renaming and moving on files, also it enabling the user to reach all the pages in the whole tree which a specific link file placed in them and in a clear visualising way.
Finally the plugin has a versioning system and auto exporting of InDesign documents to Jpegs and PDFs files.
This plugin has been invited and developed entirely and from scratch by Abdulaziz A. Junaid, it takes more than a year and consumed plenty of his free hours out of his job time.
