PostScript file via AS & the PostScript File for later disti

Hi! If I may pop in letter i is a variable used for the repeat loop. So at the 1st turn, it shall have 1 as a value; at the second turn, 2; etc. till the number of documents is hit (that is previously set as t, but actually is the number or count of documents).
Note that your script as is will only be usefull if you have a bunch of docs open in Quark at a time. So if you want it to process files you drop on a droplet, you'll want to slightly modify it in order to process each file in turn.

Thanks for the info, Jean-Marie. I prefer to open docs manually as there are specific things to do after general changes have been made.

So do you mean you'd open a bunch of QXP files, make some general changes on every open file, and then do specific things on some of those?

That's right.You know these mass-produced "customized" products. 98% of the material is universal, but there are 2% that still need the personal touch.
