    how can i get crop marks Indesign script to work in illustrator?

    cbishop01 Level 2

      Is this even possible without editing the whole thing?  What i'm trying to do is get the same exact function thats in this script.  I'll post it below incase some of you dont have it.

       

      main();
      function main(){
          //Make certain that user interaction (display of dialogs, etc.) is turned on.
          app.scriptPreferences.userInteractionLevel = UserInteractionLevels.interactWithAll;
          if (app.documents.length != 0){
              if (app.selection.length > 0){
                  switch(app.selection[0].constructor.name){
                      case "Rectangle":
                      case "Oval":
                      case "Polygon":
                      case "GraphicLine":
