Now as an experiment I created a snipped with just 1 image in it. The script below was run, it returned 1 item placed, but the alert on the item returned "undefined". I've tried alerting on placeditem also and that jsut returns empty alert. Does the place command not like images/graphic frames?
var placeditem = document.pages.item(0).place(File("/C/3.idms"),[x,y], undefined, false, true); alert(placeditem.length);
