    [JS CS3/CS4] Making embedded graphic "inline"

    Skempy Level 1

      Hi,

       

      I want to take a graphic that is in a separate (labeled) graphic frame and move it within some text as an anchored object.

       

      I can do this easily by geting the link from the image and placing it at my insertion point.

       

      var myImage = app.documents[0].pageItems.item("photo1").images[0];
      myInsertionPoint.place(myImage.itemLink.filePath);

       

      BUT how do I do this if my original graphic is embedded and the linked file no longer available?

       

      Do I have to unembed thegraphic to a temporary location, use my script above and then embed and remove the original or is there a simpler way?

       

      I expect to be told that I shouldn't be embedding graphics but this what I have to work with.

       

       

      Thanks
