    text strokeWeight InDesign CS4 js

    Yuliaart Level 1



      When I return text strokeWeight when it set to some value - I receive correct value, but when there is no stroke, it gives me value 1 instead of 0:


      var myTextStroke = myTextFrame.texts.item(0).strokeWeight;



      What can I do?


      Thank you.

          I don't know why this happens, but my guess is that this is the default value of stroke for text. By default, when you create a text in InDesign, swatch None applied to its stroke and 0 pt weight (as seen in Stroke panel); but when you apply another swatch the stroke is set to 1 pt — I think scripting just reflects this behavior in UI.
