    Altering a textframe that wasn't created through a variable by getByName

    duhwellhuh Level 1

      Hello all

      Does anyone know how to alter a preexisting textframe within illustrator using extendscript. I can see how to do it after using ".add" and then referring to the variable and altering the contents, but I can't seem to find the answer to altering the contents of a textframe that wasn't created through the script:

      I've come across "TextFrameItems.getByName," but I can seem to get it to work. Any help would be appreciated.

       

       

      var doc = app.activeDocument;

        var Ref = doc.textFrames.add();

      var myContent = Ref.contents = "blah";
