I'm pretty sure it's down to sloppy api, in the same way the adding qr codes got stuck to every element of the non-js core class, i.e. sound.qrCode (can't think of the real terms just now).
Either way afaik can't be used in practice and has come up before in the forum (I think I asked it!)
Hopefully some kind soul will shed some more light on it.
Thanks, Trevor. I'll log a feature request.
I doubt that it will be added within the next 5 - 10 years, but you never know. Still waiting for normal handling of footmarks!
I think Kris's Aphid has that function so if you need it for a specific job you can use that.
Ah, you talk about Kris Coppieters and Rorohiko's APID Tool Assistant around Active Page Item Developer , aren't you?
Hm, did developing of APID (the technology) stopped with v.1.0.47 in September 2009 ?
That's what I was referring to. I don't know if and when the devolving stopped.
It is compatible with CC2014.
The truth could be that it could be that it was completed some time ago but I don't think that it's too relevant as it's purpose is to add to the core functionality of ID.
I know that about 1/2 a year ago he said about maybe adding a particular function to it, I don't know what happened in the end.
Either way , easy to get in contact with Kris, either on the forum or through his site.
Thank you, Trevor!
Seems, that I did not dig deep enough… ;-)
