This product is not supported any more, and won’t be updated or bug-fixed. It is still available for download on an ‘as-is’ basis. This software might still work with CS6. It does NOT run with any version of InDesign CC. Try the demo before purchasing.
Action Recorder is an extension to Adobe InDesign. It records and plays back actions. It can also export these recordings as ExtendScript files. Watch the demonstration video online at http://rorohiko.tv/ActionRecorder.
The download is a time-limited demo version.
Action Recorder is already able to record quite a large number of InDesign actions (but by no means everything). It can record modifying object properties like colors, transforms, basic adding of text, executing menu actions, creating items… Currently it handles just text-frames, rectangles, layers and various styles.
It is important to remember that Action Recorder indiscriminately records as much as it possibly can. This will often result in actions that contain recorded commands you did not wish to be recorded. However, it is very easy to edit a recording after you have made it and delete the extra commands.
To install Action Recorder double click the downloaded .zxp file, or open it in your intended version of Extension Manager.
Once installed you can launch Action Recorder in InDesign by going to the “Windows -> Extensions” menu.
