What I would like is a script that will find a style, then fill in the color of that style so that one can clearly see in a long document where the style was used. When there are only subtle differences between styles, this is helpful.
The first thing to do is to clear all the options and that is my first stumbling block. In the following code the first line works, clearing the find of any parameters. The second line does not work.
Some things are different in scripting compared to the interface. For instance, the scope of the search in the interface is just "document" or "all documents", but in a script you can search a page, a spread, almost anything (I have to say that this is true for text and grep searches, I never tried it for objects). Finding frame types is different as well: there's no parameter for that I don't think. Instead, you have to find all frames that have a particular object style applied to them, then cycle through them checking their frame type; if the type matches your criteria, do what you want with it.
