    Import method does not work

    4everJang Level 3

      Hi there,

       

      Does anyone have experience in using the Doc.Import method to pull another FM file in via a script? I have tried all settings but Frame does not recognize the file type, even though it is a perfectly normal FM binary file. I can import the file manually, no problem. But when calling the Import method from an ExtendScript, Frame keeps showing the "Unknown File Type" dialog.

       

      Any help is greatly appreciated. I am running up against a wall with these freaking PropVals arrays. How come the stuff that works perfectly going through the UI does not work as it should when trying to automate things ?

          Never mind. The error was elsewhere. Why can't FM give more elaborate information about all kinds of methods ? Some error messages might be useful, e.g. when saving a file with a different extension without setting the right filter. Oh well, we'll all have to learn by stumbling, again and again and again and again. Very frustrating.
