    Alphabetize text frames, duplicate and make a list in order

    subieguy2 Level 1

      I am trying to take the selected text, sort it alphabetically, then duplicate all the text so it comes out in a list form.

      So if I had the following text selected....

      And ran my script....which I have just a vague start on...

      #target illustrator
      var doc = app.activeDocument;
      var selectedItems = doc.selection;
      var alphaList = [];
      
      
      for (i = 0; i < selectedItems.length; i++){
        alphaList.push(selectedItems[i]);
        }
      alphaList.sort();
      
      
      
      

       

      The results would be this....

      Anyone have any guidance for me? Thanks in advance!
