    Drawing pathItems that end up grouped

    Mike_Sans Level 1

      How do I go about drawing many items that end up grouped?

       

      I have:

       

       

      cropMark.setEntirePath([[(tl.x-offset), tl.y], [(tl.x-lineLength),tl.y]]);

       

       

      I'm obviously going to end up with 8 of them; how do I script their such that they end up grouped once I'm done?

          make a group and create your marks in that group

           

           

          var idoc = app.activeDocument;
          var yourGroup = idoc.groupItems.add();
          
          var cropMark1 = yourGroup.pathItems.add();
          cropMark1.setEntirePath( Array( Array(30, 50), Array(30, 100) ) );
          
          var cropMark2 = yourGroup.pathItems.add();
          cropMark2.setEntirePath( Array( Array(40, 100), Array(100, 100) ) );
