I need to adjust the width of anchored items in Indesign CS3 (MAC).
When importing a lot of mathtype eps in an Indesign layout, we find that the box containing the mathtpye formula is a bit wide. We can't figure out if or how to correct this in mathtype. So, is this possible in Indesign?
Is it possible to make a script that searches the document for an anchored item, and cuts of a certain amount of the box, i.e. make it a bit smaller. Or, even better, can you cut of a certain amount of both sides of the box? We can not scale the box, that would scale the contents to.
Can anyone help me? The document contains several thousands of eps's, the thought of adjusting them manually.....
Hi, try this script :
It's a basis so you may need to improve it regarding to your needs.
But it seems to be efficient if you have non grouped text frames (the script will run anyway, but will ignore groups).
If you have groups, you can add a loop for condireing them but it's up to you.
I don't know if it will be strong enough for thousand pages but have a try and let me know.
