Thanks. That script goes a little way towards solving my problem. Unfortunately, I don't know enough about scripting to modify it to meet my exact needs.
Is it possible to modify the script so that it applied itself to every graphic in the document with a specified object style, rather than just applied to a single selected graphic?
Also, is it possilbe to modify the script to place text that is of a given paragraph style?
If someone can post a revised script that does this, that would be exactly what I need. Thanks again.
I suggest that you visit the scripting forum and see if anyone there can help you.
Might be simpler to create a second object with the specimen tag and anchor it Right after the the first one. With a Custom position it can be moved on top.
Not clear to me if the bill samples are really inline in the flow of text, or anchored and moved to a consistent position along the margin for example. If the latter, it.s possible to set up an object style that contains the positioning information for a custom position and it could be applied to a "specimen" tag object that you store as a library item or a snippet so it would postion itself when you need it.
If you make your inline graphic with a Blend Mode of Multiply, text underneath will show. You can just back your graphic over the text and you have the word, "SPECIMEN", with your graphic.
I have a similar but different problem. I want to edit text under the inline graphic and can't seem to select/edit the text. If you know how to drill down and select the text, I would be much obliged.
It would be best if you start a new topic. In inline image is just a character in the text, for selection purposes, so I'm not sure what your problem really is. Please include a screen shot in your new topic, and give us details about the version of ID and your OS.
