    Find and replace object and font

    Mcrazy

      i was trying to flip objects with stroke value other than zero, so i tried the below code after selecting the object

       

      app.selection[0].absoluteFlip = Flip.HORIZONTAL;

       

      and it worked but i want to automate this process so i tried the below code

       

      app.findObjectPreferences = NothingEnum.nothing;

      app.changeObjectPreferences = NothingEnum.nothing;

      app.findObjectPreferences.strokeWeight != "0";

      app.changeObjectPreferences.absoluteFlip = Flip.HORIZONTAL;

      app.changeObjectPreferences.flip;

      myDocument.changeObject();

       

      but it gives error because "absoluteFlip" cant be used with "changeObjectPreferences " so what should i do

      and also i dont know how to adjust settings for find object like "includeFootnotes" and "includeHiddenLayers"

      the same way i do with find/replace text and grep

       

      also i was trying to automate find and replace fonts using grep but i faced a problem with empty text frames and empty tables

      i solved the text frames problem but i dont know how to do it in tables can any body help me in these two problems
