Under Windows?

 

The document must be saved. The text frame must be selected.
Note: Do NOT use spaces in folder names - use underscores or minus signs as separators


Try this snippet as JSX:

// select your XXX XXX textframe, then run this script snippet
// Hint: Do NOT use spaces in folder names - use underscores or minus as separator

var aDoc = app.activeDocument;
var nme = aDoc.path.toString().split("/").reverse();

var aSel = aDoc.selection;
if (aSel[0].typename == "TextFrame") {
    aSel[0].c

Haha.
I was pretty sure the description was completely inadequate.

🙂

 

The best way: You complete this answered topic by marking the correct answer.

 

Then open a new topic:

  • Please describe exactly what is in your file and how.
  • Are you allowed to correct the folder names (without spaces in the name) - or is that not possible?

 

  • Can the ‘XXX’ text frames be clearly identified (are they clearly named or are they on a separate layer)?
  • How are the text frames distributed in the document?
  • Are there more text frames ?
  • Do exactly four text frames always have to be changed or is the number variable?
  • Are they always visible and enabled?
  • Are the groups and layers above the text frames always visible and unlocked?

 

There are other questions that need to be clarified, so a sample file would be very helpful (without confidential data, saved as a PDF with Illustrator editing and attach in the new topic).

You can replace all confidential texts with dummy text and all images with placeholders. The cutting die can also be changed - only the exact same layer structure with similar objects is important!

 

See you in the new topic.
