Hi,

 

Using the script to remove the parent image text frame, I was unable to remove the parent frame after executing the script. Please find attached the script. Could you please guide us on this matter?

Hi @MonishaRajendran , Have you checked what the parent of the image is before remove()?

Add $.writeln(parentFrame) before parentFrame.remove() and check your console.

So the image is still there? Or empty TextFrame?

 

Parent of the Image can't be TextFrame directly - so if you expect the Image to be in a TextFrame - you would have to refer to the parent of the parent of your TextFrame Image:

 

 

var parentFrame = page.allPageItems[t].parent.parent;

 

 

Or something like that...

 

... Or even triple parent - as Parent of the Rectangle in the Text will be Character - so you would have to get ParentTextFrame:

 

 

var parentFrame = page.allPageItems[t].parent.parent.parentTextFrames[0];

What Object(s) does the .writeln return? Are they all the same?

The writeline returns the "object Rectangle" values. And the same values are repeated throughout the process.
