Using Price Style from Styletricks XT in applescript
« on: May 31, 2012, 09:33:18 AM »
Hello Community...
search won't help me..
so i ask :)

How can i use the Price Style from the style tricks XT in Q8 in applescript

using "price" oder "Price" won't do anything.

I need it because of update XLS table withs prices destroys applied price style in shared bigger price tags near the product picture.

Xtensions sometimes have their own dictionary and are scriptable. But not all of them. So I guess that one is not scriptable.
Youd better think differently (if possible! Im not dealing with prices nor Styletricks or is it Typetricks? so I dont know if its doable) and change the prices would it be by scripting.

Depending on how your text is set, you should. Checking for text whose character style is Price, target the 2 last chars if eligible (dont know if every single price shows cent units), then apply a specific (even AS-created) character style sheet. Are you with me?
