    Anno layer

    kanaga kumar Level 1

      Dear Friends,


      I need all anno styles map in anno layer, the below script doing only created anno layer.

      My requirement is find the anno paragraph style and map in anno layer (see the screen shot for my requirement.)


      var myDocument = app.documents.item(0);

      var myLayer = myDocument.layers.add();

      myLayer.name = "Anno";

      myLayer.layerColor = UIColors.TEAL;

      myLayer.ignoreWrap = false;

      myLayer.visible = true;

          You can not apply a layer to

          • paragraphStyle
          • text
          • story
          • etc;

          you even can not do it to a textFrame if it is treated or inside a group of objects.


          So reconsider your goal.

            Hi Kanakumar,


            Is this you need?


            var doc = app.activeDocument;

            app.findTextPreferences = NothingEnum.nothing;

            app.changeTextPreferences = NothingEnum.nothing;

            app.findTextPreferences.appliedParagraphStyle = doc.paragraphStyles.item("anno");

            var myfind = doc.findText();

            for(var i=0;i<myfind.length;i++)


                myfind[i].parentTextFrames[0].itemLayer = doc.layers.item("anno");


            app.findTextPreferences = NothingEnum.nothing;

            app.changeTextPreferences = NothingEnum.nothing;
