Is there some simple AS syntax to align selected page items on a page?
Dictionary seems to imply that, saying:
align distribute items page item : The page items to align or distribute.
align option left edges/top edges/right edges/bottom edges/horizontal centers/vertical centers : The type of alignment to apply.
I attempted this:
tell page items in selection
set vertical alignment to top edges
Its kinda of crazy but here ya go, I wish the AppleScript Dictionary listed examples ...esp. when the syntax is wacky.
select a bunch of images, or have the object references in a list(I just use selection to make it easier):
tell application "Adobe InDesign CS3"
tell active document
set myimages to selection
align align distribute items myimages align option left edges
The text in the red is where you put those paramaters listed in the dictionary.
God Bless You.
Yes, where is the WACKY SYNTAX resource ! I searched the net for two hours yesterday looking for these nine words.
I knew it would be something like "align align distribute distribute items myItems wackywacky preferences option top edges"
Again thank you and all other contributors to this forum !!!!
