    [CS4|JS] Moving anchored Object doesn't change its geometricBounds

    franzi_ska Level 1

      Hello Scripters,

      in my Indesign document I have anchored objects as sidenotes, sometimes they're overlapping.

      For this I am trying to move them as long as they still overlap, I used the following script:

       

      myInlineRectangles[k].move(undefined, [0, -2]);

       

      I've put that line into a while loop to move the object (until it doesn't overlap).

       

      It does work, it moves the object (although I read that this is not possible). The only problem is that the geometricBounds stay the same.

      As I am comparing the geometricBounds in my "while-condition" it ends in an endless loop.

       

      Why does the object doesn't change its geometricBounds after moving?

      How to avoid that?

       

      Thanks a lot in advance for any answer.
