    Cut/paste text from anchored text box?

      I've recently been investigating scripting in InDesign and have a problem to solve that is beyond my, basic, understanding.

      I have used Rorohiko 'Lightning Brain Text Exporter' to extract text (rtf) from a book.

      The text contains countless anchored text frames. I would like to be able to select all the text within the anchored text frame, cut it, and paste it back into the document where the anchored item is referenced and then delete the (now empty) anchored text frame.

       

      Any help would be gratefully accepted

       

      Thanks Steve
