How do I use the Graphics Select tool via interapplication communication?
Copy link to clipboard
(If it helps to have context, I want to make a program that will copy some tables from PDFs to Excel spreadsheets, and selecting a table via the graphics select tool, copying it, and pasting it into Excel is the only way I've found to do this that doesn't mess up the tables in ways that get rid of information that needs to be preserved, so I figured that I'd make the program select the tables then copy them via , but I haven't been able to find anything for graphics selection in the interapplication communication section of the API reference - it lists AVDocs as having a SetTextSelection function, but nothing simmilar for graphics selection.)
Interapplication Communication is extremely limited compared to the plug-in API and often things are impossible that way.
I see. That's disappointing, but thank you for explaining. I guess I'll need to look for another way to get the data out. Thank you for keeping me from wasting more time on a dead-end approach.
