I don't use InDesign very often, but thank you for the kitten photo.
I guess you don't need it anymore right now, but here is the script:
- ayee, see my reply above, did it this way: http://pastebin.com/… but thanks!mekk
- Oh sorry, I haven't noticed that.stefano_redokun
no, at some point you have to do the work
I guess you could lock the layer you don't want and then copy/paste each page individually, which would take only a couple of minutes, and certainly faster than waiting for an answer in this thread.
- unless that script actually worksmonospaced
- yep it worksmekk
I want to copy Layer "XY" from doc. A to doc. B on top of it. So it still has 130 pages.
Like dragging a layer in PS from doc A to B, for ALL pages..
Can you please explain a little more? If all you want is to merge the documents (130 + 130 = 260 pages), then open the two documents, select all the pages from one document in the pages panel, then Right-Click (or choose from the tiny right corner menu) Move Pages. In the dialog, you should be able to choose the document destination, choose the other one and choose where the pages should be placed (i.e endo of document, start, after page xy..)
- thats the ticket - what monospaced tried to say but didn't quite.fadein11
- I did say it though.monospaced
Ha! Got it, for anyone interested:
copy code, create new document and name it asshat.jsx, import to scripts panel. Hope someone of you can use it and save an evening!

- this does only work across one document.. but thanks :)mekk
You can use "Merge pages" to copy pages from one doc to another, but I don't know if it can limit to only a certain layer.
- "Move pages" I meanmonospaced
- Pages panelmonospaced
So I have two documents, each is 130 pages long and I need to merge them:
I need to copy layer "xy" from Document A to document B. I used a script for this in my old agency but I don't have it anymore and that asshat ex-coworker doesn't answer his phone.
Here is an image of a kitten to give you some motivation:
How can I do this? :)
