    Geometric Bounds

    Math Kay Level 1

      I am beginner in learning the Indesign Scripting. For adding text frame in indesign, I don't know about Geometric bounds. Please explain about  X1, X2, Y1, Y2. how to find these bounds in indesign.

          1. notice where zeroPoint is and how ruleOrigin is set.

          2. select an object and notice coordinates of top-left (X1,Y1) point and bottom-right point  (X2,Y2)

          3. compare it to app.selection[0].geometricBounds     ==> which results in order:  Y1,X1,Y2,X2
