I am developing a tool plugin that will place a designed object onto the artboard whenever there is a mouse click. I am reusing the samplecode MultiArrowTools inside the SDK, and I can let it draw paths whenever the mouse is clicked. However, I wonder if there is any way to place the existing group art when the mouse is click. The existing group art is in another AI file.
You can use the AIPlacedSuite for placing files into the current document.
If you have the handle to the group art in the other document, you can copy it into the current one. I'm less sure about moving it, but you can definitely copy it.
Thank you very much for your advice. It seems that the AIPlacedSuite will do what I need. I will try and get back soon!
