    I’ll start by saying that my level of expertise in AppleScript, and InDesign for that matter, is pretty rudimentary. That said, if you look at the attached screen shot. It shows a very simple AppleScript that sets a variable to all the images in a InDesign document.

    The right hand side of the screen shot shows the list of images with a value for each image. I would consider the values to be the full path to each image.

    What I want is to be able to set a variable to those full path strings so that I can essentially set a field in a database to the full path string with subsequent AppleScript steps.

    I can’t figure out how to simply get the list of the values that you can see in the screenshot as a string.

    In other words, I want to set a variable to:

    image id 1808 of rectangle id 1445 of spread id 185 of document id 1

    image id 1687 of rectangle id 1661 of spread id 185 of document id 1

    …etc…

    Can anyone help me with this?
