    Trouble porting CS3 script to CS5

    ogilvy58

      Hi:

       

      I'm having difficulty porting some of my CS3 scripts over to CS5. It seems I'm having problems placing graphics in rectangles.

       

      On the following script:

       

      tell application "Adobe InDesign CS5"

      activate

      set newDoc to make document

      tell newDoc

      tell document preferences

      set page width to 8.5

      set page height to 11

      end tell

       

       

      make rectangle with properties {geometric bounds:{1.75, 1.5, 3.5, 4.375}, fill color:swatch "Black", fill tint:0, stroke weight:0.5, stroke color:swatch "Black", stroke tint:0, label:"ImageBox"}

       

       

       

      set tempPDF to "Macintosh HD:Users:someuser:Desktop:temp.pdf"

       

       

      tell rectangle "ImageBox"

      place tempPDF

      end tell

       

       

      end tell

      end tell

      it draws the rectangle but I get an error saying it doesn't understand the "place" message.
      Has something changed in how you load a graphic into a rectangle?
      Thanks.
