    BEGINNER_X Level 3

      Hi All,

       

       

      Request:

       

      I want to find first line in every text frame column.

       

       

      Bug:

       

      If the active document contains single column, two column and multiple column text frames. In that case I am not able to get my result

       

       

      Trying script:

       

      var myDoc = app.activeDocument

       

      var myTextFrames = myDoc.textFrames.everyItem().getElements()

       

      for(i=0; i<myTextFrames.length; i++)

      {

            var myTextColumns1 = myTextFrames[i].textColumns[1].lines[0].contents

                alert(myTextColumns1)

           }

       

      Herewith i attached the error file.

       

      If active document contains only two column text frame, script run sucessfully.

       

      If active document contains single column text frame and two column text frame error found as below:
