I have a and old documnet which which runs in couple of text frames which are linked.
I have references made like this (ftn) then couple of words or sentences and (ftn)...and so on
I have another text frame which contains list of footnotes.
I want a simple script that adds footnotes as per the number (ftn)...(ftn)...and so on..
I have seen Peter Kahrel's script but its to complicated to understand...Can anyone guide plz
This is a specific request, you should ask someone to write the script for you for a fee.
Thanks for the suggestion Peter.
I am using your scripts and its a life saver. I want to learn scripting, specially the ones which involve in footnotes.
I tried to understand your script but could not as I am fairly new in scripting.
@Peter Kahrel would definitely have used the DOM api's for the changes done on the document, simplistically let's say creation of footnote for example. So you can understand that part from his code and then break down your remaining problem set in smaller pieces that you can try to tackle, search on the forum or ask questions around it. What I am trying to say is, if you are trying to learn then there is no need to give up by saying someone else's code is complex, you have to give it a shot on your own to start with.
First of all my apologies. I didnt ment to hurt anyone...I have lot of respect for Peter. I am using his scripts in my day to day life work. It was complex for me to understand. I am incompetent here.
In no way I am trying to hurt him or anyone. He is helping people with his knowledge. I am sorry once again. My sincere apologies @Peter Kahrel
No one got hurt here @shahidr100 chill out. We both gave you suggestions that you can follow
Thanks Manan, I'll give it a second shot....
Thanks so much.
No worries, Shahidr, no offence taken at all. Follow Manan's suggestions and you'll be fine.
