Where can I find this patch, do you have a link? I went to the downloads section and I saw a patch for an English help guide, but I didn't see anything that addressed the move problem.
Found the patch, thanks!!
Is it working for you now?
Don't forget you are using version CS (not CS2 or CS3). Ole was
referring to CS2.
Will this work for CS, too?
Nevermind, I see you got it working. Great!!!
Ok, me again.
I got it working - well, it moves the text boxes I select - but for some reason the Y variable isn't coming out correctly.
For example, if I use the coordinates 32.385, 16.231 in a script, it moves it to the correct spot on the X axis, but the coordinate for the Y will be off. Further, depending on what text box I select to move, it will vary (by 1-5 mm) along the Y axis. Different text boxes go to different areas along the Y axis, but never far from the script coordinate.
So I guess there does need to be some alteration made? I'll post this in the script forum too, not really sure where it belongs with this particular problem.
The coordinates are of the top left of the text frame.
(And BTW, you are in the scripting forum, you must be lost ;)).
Another consideration--where is the zero point when you move the objects? If you've moved it, your coordinates will change. The ruler origin you're using might also play a part.
It should work in CS, as well. I don't know for certain, and I'm not going to reinstall CS to find out. (I have too many versions of InDesign on my systems as it is! If I can keep the next one and the last one working, I figure I'm doing okay.)
I had moved the zero point, ah! It's working like a charm now, thanks a lot for all your help guys.
