Thanks for the "unusable by me" clarification. My concern was that your original statement implied that it doesn't work, and I wanted to make it clear that it does work. But I agree that it does have poor documentation and a lack of good samples. BTW, I do offer FrameMaker ExtendScript training for anyone interested. Thanks.

I did manage to automate some things anyway, but the scripts stopped working after a few months for no apparent reason. Again, no tech support. <https://www.google.com/search?client=firefox-a&hs=fXr&rls=org.mozilla%3Aen- US%3Aofficial&q=rlauriston+extendscript++site%3Aforums.adobe.com&oq=rlaurist on+extendscript++site%3Aforums.adobe.com> On Tue, Nov 26, 2013 at 6:26 PM, Rick Quatro <r...@rickquatro.com> wrote: > "Unusable" is a bit of an exaggeration.
