After I installed Pathway and tried to use it as a pathway to InDesign, I’m now getting a macro (I think it’s a macro) running in InDesign whenver I try to open a file. It wants me to run a script that does something with guide words. I believe this has something to do with dictionaries which can be done in Pathway. Has Pathway started this macro running. How can I get it stopped? Jim Park

You are right. There is a macro that is installed. The macro is supposed to try to determine if a dictionary file has been loaded and exit doing nothing if the wrong kind of data has been loaded. Apparently there is still a problem with this. I don’t know if you can give us more information about the file so we can try to make sure this doesn’t happen in the future.
Anyway, to remove the macro, you open the Windows Explorer. In the address bar you can type %tmp% press enter and this variable will be expanded to the path to your temporary folder. If you are using Windows 7 (or Vista), you want to click on AppData (which is one of the folders in the address bar. It is about two levels up. If you are using Windows XP, you want to go up levels until you are at Application Data. Now if you are using Windows 7 (or Vista), you want to go to Roaming, Adobe, InDesign, Version 6.0, en_US, Scripts, Start Scripts. There you will find the PlaceFrames.jsx script file. You can delete it. Pathway will put it back when you run it again. (If you are using Windows XP, there won’t be a Roaming folder but the rest of the instructions still apply.)
