That's not how it works. The script decides whether it operates on one rectangle; all rectangles; all documents, downloads documents off the Internet, opens them all, and does something to the 7th rectangle, and then uploads the documents back to a server.
So it depends on the script. Please post the script or a link thereto (or tell us which one if it's a standard script).
Thanks for chipping in. I'm fairly familiar with scripting, so I know
what should be happening. Even a simple script like
a = 5
will, when you run it, return "5" in the ExtendScript console.
But nothing was happening. Running the script had no result. I don't
think the script was actually being run. Very strange.
If I copied the script to a new document, and ran it, it then worked.
But running it from the old document didn't!
Anybody come across this?
Either I or the forum software screwed up! I meant
to post this in response to "Newbie question"
and somehow it ended up in this thread.
I'm going to bet that it was me who screwed up...
Anyhow, I have seen this happen, usually only after single-stepping.
I don't know why it happens or what to do about it other than
restarting the ESTK. But mostly when it happens, it has been after
I've crashed InDesign, so I feel like crashing the ESTK too isn't
so bad...not helpful, I know!
That's funny. Your answer kind of fits my question.
I'm reading this right now via email.
