Changing Hairline Rules
« on: May 05, 2010, 09:57:53 AM »
Is there a way to "mass" change hairline rules to .25 pt or some other weight? I have 2 48 pages documents with hairline rules spec throughout. I am hoping there is an Xtension or Applescript to change the rule weights??  -thanks you looking

I used to be able to do this with line boxes using 'XPert Tools' Find & Change for 6.5 don't know if this is available anymore for newer versions.

else this may get you started with an AppleScript route…

001   tell application "QuarkXPress"
002        activate
003        if not (exists document 1) then error "No document is open."
004        tell document 1
005             set HL_Boxes to every graphic box whose box type is line box type and width is "0 pt"
006             repeat with i from 1 to count of HL_Boxes
007                  set width of item i of HL_Boxes to "0.25 pt"
008             end repeat
009        end tell
010   end tell
