Extendscript solution to generate Paragraph, Character and Table Format Descriptives

Hello FrameMaker users and Friends,

Too much of travelling kept us busy last fortnight. Was taking a look on the Framers list and found an interesting problem to solve- Link.

This script pulls out information on Paragraph, Character & Table tags from the active document and displays it in a HTML report.

HTML Tag Descriptives Report

Tag Descriptives Report

The report has three sections:

  1. Paragraph Formats
  2. Character Formats
  3. Table Formats

Each listing down different tag definitions and some associated properties for each tag in the document.

You can modify the script to add fields that are important to be captured in the report.

Overall a nice report to keep track of all tags and the related info in one report. We found it very useful while designing templates for a project. Hopefully anyone using this script will derive some benefit using this report.

Download the extendscript here (Right click and Save as) and rename pdf to jsx- TagDescriptives.jsx

Feel free to share your thoughts on it.
