    Is it possible to find overlapping/intersecting objects directly?

    bha$kar Level 1

      I have 736 pages document which is auto-generated (through our javascripts) with more sidebars (anchored objects/text-frames placed outside margin). There are cases where the sidebars overlapping with each other. One of the solutions we could think of is that we will have to check each page for overlapping objects (find all frames and check whether they overlap in a page and go to next page and so on) but it is very time consuming as the overlapping objects may be there in ~75 pages but the script will have to check all 736 pages. Is there any other way to directly find the objects that overlaps (excluding the group objects).

       

      Any help on this is greatly appreciated.
