I'm working on a calendar in InDesign and I have a circle object (oval) that I want to position over the day of the month:
If anyone can help me script the basics to get me started I would greatly appreciate it.
Yes, it is possible to position an InDesign object via scripting. First you need to somehow adress the oval, so you can later move it. If it is the only oval on the spread you can use
var myOval = app.activeWindow.activeSpread.ovals.firstItem();
to save the oval in the variable myOval.
Afterwards you can just use
to move the oval into its position. Is this enough info to get you started?
