InDesign CS6 - Export selected pages OR Select all objects on page


Question

I'm looking for a way in InDesign CS6 to do one or both of the following:

1) Export one or more pages based on the selection in the Pages panel without relying on the Range selector in the Export panel.

quickly select and export non-adjacent pages?

2) Select all items in the current page, not in the current spread, using a shortcut and whithout separating the page from the spread first.

Note: I'm exporting to PNG.

Regarding #1, I posted an answer on a similar post where I used a script to exclude "draft" pages. Perhaps you could use that, or flip the script to only include pages that you mark?

As for #2, that can be accomplished with a script. Give this a try:

var currentPage = app.activeWindow.activePage; // Find the active page.

ItemsOnPage = currentPage.pageItems.length; // Get the number of items on the page.

for (var i=0; i<ItemsOnPage; i++) // Loop through every item.
{
    currentPage.pageItems.everyItem().select(); // Select every item.
}
