In May 2010, Loïc Aigon and I have written the first draft of ReportPageHyphens, a quite basic script which is used to inventory all unattractive hyphens that occur between two pages. The preliminary version of RPH has been released in Scriptopedia and was supposed to work in InDesign CS4. Since then we have found several bugs and issues. Some of them have been reported in Scriptopedia's comment page, or in the Adobe InDesign forum. The main user request was that the script can also identify unwanted hyphens that appear in footnotes. Should we try a new approach?
ReportPageHyphens 2.0 —presently in beta— is designed to solve most known issues and to provide some new features:
• the script now supports InDesign CS4 and CS5;
• it detects footnote page hyphens;
• the user interface has been (slightly) improved;
• you can quickly reach any reported page using the Goto Page button.
