The situation is t his:

  • Searching for an object with Style override was succesful.
  • The now selected object is located within an anchored frame (do not know whether there are other 'hosts' also possible.

Now I want to continue the search - but have no Text Location to start in this situation. The object (graphic) may be selected or not selected. I need to escape the anchored frame and find the anchor...

Any ideas how to achieve this?

Thank you very much, Rick! I really had problems finding an adaequate property - mainly because the list of properties is not in alphabetic order in the FM Scripting Guide. So my visual search process is disturbed frequently... And yes, it also may be my age...

I am almost 63 years old. Due to glaucoma, I make frequent visits to a specialist in that area. Recently, after examining me, she wrote in her report, "In view of the patient's youth, I recommend...". The funny thing is, she really meant it. From her point of view, 63 is still young.
