I have a question concerning dialog object in InDesign.
As I am creating a dialog object by using "make dialog" command and showing it by using "set myResult to show myDialog" command, the dialog box pops up as supposed. However, the issue I've found is that the focus is now moved to the dialog box instead of the .indd file. That is to say, I cannot select/change any text of the file while dsiplaying a dialog. But for the genetic find/replace function for InDesign, such feature can be achieved.
So anyone knows how to do that? Thanks in advance!
A built-in app palette is something different to the modal dialogs offered by script… It looks like you are using AppleScript where you can use AppleScript's dialogs or InDesign's built-in dialogs… In either case I don't think you can do what you intend…
oh I see, I will try to use the applescript's dialog~ thanks for your help
