New Scripts to automate Adobe DPS

In my work with Adobe Digital Publishing Suite (DPS), I've found that there are certain tasks when creating interactive content that are either highly-repetitive, or difficult and tedious to do. I decided to try to do something about this.

The first outcome of this is a set of 6 scripts that I call "Digital publishing pack 1: scripts for Adobe DPS". In a nutshell, the scripts makes creating a button-driven "reveal and hide" object completely automatic. It also makes it possible to add objects to all states of a multi-state object in a single step, and provides an easy way to move from one state to another within a multi-state object.

My on-line store contains more specifics about the scripts, as well as a brief demonstration video. The package of 6 scripts costs $19.95/workstation.

I'd love to hear what you think of these scripts. If you have ideas for other DPS-related tasks that should be automated, I'd love to hear those ideas as well. Thanks!
