How can I use applescript to move objects to a specific position on the page?

I have a PDF file with a bunch of items of text on each page, but the margins are irregular.  I want to automate the following process:

1. Select all the objects on the page

2. move objects (such as a group, i.e. preserving their arrangement relative to each other) until the upper left corner of the object of most of the top-left {. 67 ", 1"} from the upper left corner of the page.

3. go to the next page.

4. Repeat steps.

I work on a mac, and I see that Acrobat is scriptable using Applescript.  Is it possible to do it with this?  If there is another way to describe this process without Applescript, I'd be open to that as well.

Thank you very much.

Acrobat has no interface for scripts change the position of an ordinary object.

    You can activate it without a SIM card. If it is locked, it takes a SIM card by the carrier, for it is locked. The SIM card should not be linked to an active line of service, but it must be present to activate it.

    How can I use an external HTML form with a file upload in my page of MUSE? I know I can insert an external form, but how do I create a link to my email

    Yes, in most cases. If it is not in your actual embed code, you will need to be added to the script that uses the code. There are literally hundreds of form manages the codes out there on the web, it would be impossible to tell you exactly where it needs to be added. Your best option is to use a third party such as JotForms or WooForms shape provider and use the third Muse Widgets for these services.

  • How can I use applescript for OCR to a bunch of files - with Acrobat XI?

    Hello

    IWant to write an AppleScript (for example) that can be used as a droplet or has a menu to open a folder of pdf files scanned for OCR. And - I want to use Acrobat XI (because it's my version), German version.

    As Acrobat XI is not recordable with applescript editor and I can't find a manual of objects and methods I googled a script that worked with Acrobat 9, but not with Acrobat XI. Here, you define a "Wizard of Action" - Script for example called "OCR this ' and 'click' of the element. But as in Acrobat XI this Item is noch in hand-sbubmenu more than it seems to not work.

    Here is a screenshot:

    Bildschirmfoto 2014-07-14 um 10.57.06.png

    And it's theapplescrpt, tha opens "Aktionsassistent":

    Click on the menu item "Aktionsassistent" in the menu "Tools" from menu item "Tools" in the menu "Anzeige" of the menu bar item "Anzeige" from the menu bar 1

    BotR, so I cannot reach "OCR it."

    If any body has a suspicion - either by clicking on "OCR this ' or sript an OCR on one open our AppleScript, that would be great.

    Thank you

    AppleScript is documented in the Acrobat SDK kit. But there is no way to do it.

  • How can I fix my printer when it prints on different places on the page?

    Thanks in advance,

    Installation program:

    HP Photosmart C4280

    Windows XP Service Pac 2

    Office 2007

    Adobe CS2 Bundle

    Details:

    I pre-printed forms on semi-glace 4 x 6 paper.

    I have attemtped to print in the empty fields.

    When I press print, the printer does not consistenty start in the same place.

    so to adjust the document / image is not applicable, because is not printing to the same place.

    I tried printing from Illustrator, photoshop, acrobat, word, & windows fax and picture viewer

    and got the same results.

    Printing on letter size paper works very well (and I love the printer by the way).

    Is there a hardware problem, or is this driver/software problems?

    How can I fix it?

    Thanks again for any help.

    I think that it is a hardware problem.  The rollers are probably problems picking up the thick supports relatively smooth.  You might have better results to clean the rolls of paper with a wet paper towel collection.  Also make sure that the paper is loaded and the paper guides have been correctly positioned.

    Kind regards

  • How can I use a FLV/MOV as one of the 2 inputs?

    I was wondering if anyone knew the right way to add a video to a 2 input filter (which is not a mixture)?
    I use a filter which is a bit like DisplacementMapFilter (Ryan Taylor):
    http://www.Boostworthy.com/blog/?p=245

    That I saw working with still images, but I'd love to see him working with a film like the entries 1.

    If I can get help to make filters Ryan to work with a FLV or MOV, then I can make it work on the filter that I work on.

    I work with jpg (by applying it to a BitmapData object). And I have a film to work with a filter with 1 entrance (which is pretty easy). But this one has really puzzled me.

    When it's a mix is really easy, but filters like DisplacementMapFilter.pbk (Ryan Taylor) won't work with just a blendShader.
    Help, please!

    Quick and easy way to do it:

    (1) load each video in an FLVPlayback instance. Listen for the event PLAYHEAD_UPDATE.

    (2) onPlayheadUpdate, enter your executives with bitmapData.draw ().

    (3) provide these bitmapDatas shader:
    Shader.Data.image1.Input = bitmapData1
    Shader.Data.image2.Input = bitmapData2

    (4) draw the result with the drawing API beginShaderFill method.

  • How can I use a script in a Livecycle Designer form, to force the display of text in title case?

    Hello

    I'm a 'newbie' who's DIY'ing the construction of a dynamic form using Adobe Livecycle Designer 7 (I know it's a VERY old version!)

    [Thus, any aid that arrives must be "for Idiots"!]

    I need to build a code (Java script?) so some of my text fields DISPLAY data in the case of title - no matter how the user types in the data.

    Thus, for example, in a text field "address"...

    If someone types in...

    "sherborne 205 avenue.

    -OR-

    "205 Sherborne avenue"

    -OR-

    '205 SHERBORNE AVENUE'...

    I need the data to be DISPLAYED ESSENTIALLY as...

    "205 Sherborne Avenue".

    I found the following online and tried code in the event "output" of the field that I need to change (with 'language' chosen as JavaScript)...

    < this.rawValue = this.rawValue.replace (/ \b([a-z])/g, function (_, original) {return initial.toUpperCase () ;});})   >

    ... Was done to convert all the 'initial' words in uppercase letters - as LONG as they have not ALL typed in capital letters!

    Thus, this code has worked for the first two of my samples for Sherborne Avenue above - but it has NOT worked for the last...

    "205 AVENUE of SHERBORNE" does NOT get converted to title case - which is what I need help.

    Thanks in advance...

    I divided it in multimuple lines, but you could do without doubt in one if you wish

    var sometext = this.rawValue;

    someText = sometext.toLowerCase ();

    this.rawValue = sometext.replace (/ \b([a-z])/g, function (_, original) {return initial.toUpperCase () ;});})

  • To delete all tables in TT, how can I use cursor this way Timesten 11?

    Hello
    I want to delete all tables in Timesten, so I create a procedure like this, but it seems does not work correctly.

    It seems cursor in not accurate Timesten with which in ORACLE. So we are looking for alternatives to do. Could you please provide your expert voice on it.

    Thank you very much.

    Like the following:


    Command > create or replace procedure dropAllTables
    > as
    > CURSOR mycursor IS select table_name from user_tables;
    > table_name user_tables.table_name%type;

    > immediately execute dropSql;
    > fetch mycursor into table_name;
    > end of loop;
    > close mycursor;
    > end;
    > /.

    Created procedure.

    8507: ORA-06512: at line 1
    The command failed.



    How can I use cursor this way Timesten 11?

    It is the implementation of cursor close commit on in Timesten is the cause.

    As the drop statements are internally auto-valider the transaction so it closes the cursor itself. So when the next time that you attempt to extract it is your "error cursor not valid."

    Can you try this instead

    create or replace procedure dropAllTables
    as
    CURSOR mycursor IS select table_name from user_tables;
    table-name user_tables.table_name%type;
    type t_row_collection is table of the directory index user_tables.table_name%type;
    t_rows t_row_collection;
    dropSql varchar2 (200);
    Start
    Open mycursor;
    Mycursor fetch bulk collect into t_rows;
    Close mycursor;
    j in t_rows.first... loop t_rows. Last
    dropSql: = 'drop table ' | t_rows (j);
    immediately run dropSql;
    end loop;
    end;

    How can I use my instore credit for a movie

    Hello R Larson,

    I see that you are wanting to use a store credit for a movie. I'll be happy for you have said in the right direction. First of all, let's see if we can find out if the credit is a credit of iTunes gift card or a credit from the Apple Store. This article will help you determine what may be:

    What kind of card do I? -Apple Support

    If credit is iTunes, you can just check your balance using the instructions found in the section below and use to either rent or buy a movie to display:

    See your credit balance - Apple Support iTunes

    If the store is an Apple Store Gift card credit, you would not be able to use iTunes to watch a movie.

    I hope this helps. See you soon!
