For the time being, neither IndexMatic nor BookBarcode is supposed to properly work in InDesign CC. New releases are being implemented, but this takes much more time than expected. Anyway a few weeks ago Eddy Van Hoeke from Scriptopedia found an amazing trick that makes both iX² and bB virtually compatible with the latest InDesign versions. And it boils down to one instruction…
RIGHT-CLICK whenever the regular LEFT CLICK fails!
Indeed, the only serious problem you'll have to face in running those scripts in CC environments is interacting with the user interface, and mainly interacting with flawed buttons that do not seem to work at all. For example, the
Batch Processing... button does not react in BookBarcode, while clicking
Hit Report... has no effect in IndexMatic. Also, the controls that should allow you to edit and use the Query List do not respond.
What my colleague discovered is simply awesome, and dramatically simple. “Instead, try right-clicking that recalcitrant button!” Ta-da, now you can access those CS-reserved features. Lucky you!
A huge thank you to Eddy.
