Hi community,

Is there a way to set Change Bar to a TextRange using ExtendScript?
I have found a way to set Change Bar to Pgf but can not find how to do the same with TextRange.

function setChangeBar(oTextRange) {
  if (!oTextRange) return 
  var pgf = oTextRange.beg.obj
  pgf.ChangeBar = 1;
}

 

Thanks.

Assuming that textRange is a valid TextRange, you use something like this: var prop; prop = new PropVal (); prop.propIdent.num = Constants.FP_ChangeBar; prop.propVal.valType = Number; prop.propVal.ival = 1; doc.SetTextPropVal (textRange, prop); For best practice I would encapsulate this into a function, perhaps called applyChangeBar, and pass in the TextRange and Doc objects whenever I want to apply a change bar to a range of text.
