Hi Tony! This is doable by AlleScript for sure. I used to have one script a long time ago then forgot about it when Sort Text.xnt came out. I should find my script though somewhere in the archives. The downside of it was that text formatting would get erased. It was back in v6 maybe so with v9 features such as Conditional Styles it might easy next to reformat the text if needed.formerly Tony P wrote:I wonder if such a thing could be done with Applescript?
As for nudge amounts, I think Badia FullMeasure features that. Just check their website.formerly Tony P wrote:Nudge amounts I haven't got Quark 9 up and running yet - it'll go on a new machine and monitor I'm setting up; I'm wondering if this is more controllable in 9 - in Quark 6, the snap distance only seems to accept whole points as a measurement, and so it's not poss to set a metric measure when required (I've never been able to get guides to snap to the rulers when dragging them, which gets a bit tedious).
Guides won't snap to rulers or document edges! And if you want to place them more precisely, just zoom in at max. Snapping is only good for items to guides. Do you get it?formerly Tony P wrote:Re. snapping to the rulers sorry, a separate issue to the Nudging when I drag guides across a document I cannot get them to snap to any whole numbers (or other values) whatever snap distance I set there. I'm sure this never used to be a problem, so I'm thinking maybe I've just forgotten how to do it (senility setting in!).
