re: "Supposedly their is a "new" FindChangeByList.jsx somewhere that works, but I am unable to find it. the scripting/index page on adobe's website is useless, and provides no help what so ever. no links either."
I just looked, and everything is still working. Go to:
Then click the Scripting Resources tab.
Here are the direct links that might be helpful--first, updated sample scripts:
Second, the scripts that go with the Scripting Guide:
Also, if you don't see links or information at that page--which browser are you using?
Thanks for the help in finding the scripts.
I still can't get a dialog to come up for the find/change script unless I edit the directory path in line 119 by deleting the first "/". then it errors and says that the "find" text entry is invalid. Clues?
will the "ReadPMTags.jsx" script allow you to apply character, paragraph, and object styles to the remaining text, or will the text have to be assigned 1 paragraph style?
Which dialog are you looking for? Also, which platform (Mac OS/Windows) are you using?
It's just like PageMaker tags, which don't include character styles or object styles. It does have two features that the original PM tags didn't include--<i> for italic and <b> for bold.
Take the ReadPMTags function from the script, though, and you'll have a good place to start.
