Changing one font into another using extendscript

Tags: #extendscript #replace_font

Hi there, I've been trying to replace one font by another, but no success , and it seems hard to find some good examples on how to do this, though it looks to me like something rather common to do with extend script. Could someone lead me in the right direction ? If for instance I would like to replace a font called 'font1' with weight 'bold' with another one called 'font2' with weight 'bold' into a document, how should I do this ?

    Can you be more specific on what you want to do? Do you want to change fonts for a particular paragraph, paragraph format, or character format? You can certainly work with font and weight properties with ExtendScript, but your approach will depend on what you want to do.

    FYI, you can also do font changes globally using the Update All capabilities of the designers with other properties set to AsIs. This assumes that overrides haven't been used to change the fonts anywhere.
