The inserted graph is converted by path. How to apply an object style directly?

Hi Sunil Yadav.

I'm sorry.

I missed you and didn't reply in time.

The script provided by you can insert the path in the text containing @d:\pic\a.jpg@ directly into the image.

But when the picture is too large, the text box will be too wide to display.

How to apply an object style to an imported graph directly? For example, "mypic" object style.

So I can use mypic to control the position and size of the image.

 

Thank you very much.

---------------------------------------------------------------

Here's the script you provided

 

app.findGrepPreferences = NothingEnum.nothing;
app.changeGrepPreferences = NothingEnum.nothing;
app.findGrepPreferences.findWhat = "(?<=@)([^@]+)(?=@)";
var allFound = app.documents[0].findGrep();
for(var i = 0; i < allFound.length; i){
    var allContent = allFound[i].texts[0].contents;
    var filePath = File(allContent.toString().replace(/[\s]+/g,'').replace(/\\/g,'/'));
    if(filePath.exists){
        if(allFound[i].insertionPoints[0].parent.characters[allFound[i].texts[0].characters[-1].index+1].contents == "@"){
            allFound[i].insertionPoints[0].parent.characters[allFound[i].texts[0].characters[-1].index+1].contents = "";
            app.documents[0].recompose();
            }
        allFound[i].texts[0].contents = "";
        allFound[i].texts[0].insertionPoints[0].place(filePath);
        if(allFound[i].insertionPoints[0].parent.characters[allFound[i].texts[0].characters[0].index-1].contents == "@"){
            allFound[i].insertionPoints[0].parent.characters[allFound[i].texts[0].characters[0].index-1].contents = "";
            app.documents[0].recompose();
            }
        }
    else{
        i++;
        }
    app.documents[0].recompose();
    var allFound = app.documents[0].findGrep();
    }

Hi,

You just need to add one line while placing the object. Try this snippet:

app.findGrepPreferences = NothingEnum.nothing;
app.changeGrepPreferences = NothingEnum.nothing;
app.findGrepPreferences.findWhat = "(?<=@)([^@]+)(?=@)";
var allFound = app.documents[0].findGrep();
for(var i = 0; i < allFound.length; i){
    var allContent = allFound[i].texts[0].contents;
    var filePath = File(allContent.toString().replace(/[\s]+/g,'').replace(/\\/g,'/'));
    if(filePath.exists){
        if(allFound[i].insertionPoints[0].parent.characters[allFound[i].texts[0].characters[-1].index+1].contents == "@"){
            allFound[i].insertionPoints[0].parent.characters[allFound[i].texts[0].characters[-1].index+1].contents = "";
            app.documents[0].recompose();
            }
        allFound[i].texts[0].contents = "";
        var object = allFound[i].texts[0].insertionPoints[0].place(filePath);
        //=================apply Object Style
        object[0].parent.appliedObjectStyle = app.documents[0].objectStyles.item("mypic");
        //======================
        if(allFound[i].insertionPoints[0].parent.characters[allFound[i].texts[0].characters[0].index-1].contents == "@"){
            allFound[i].insertionPoints[0].parent.characters[allFound[i].texts[0].characters[0].index-1].contents = "";
            app.documents[0].recompose();
            }
        }
    else{
        i++;
        }
    app.documents[0].recompose();
    var allFound = app.documents[0].findGrep();
    }

Hello Sunil Yadav~
The script runs, but the path is too long or contains too many Chinese characters, there will be no response.

For example, the long path below is invalid for the script, but it can be used in Indesign

E:\G-工作up\S-新排版\G-乐高年鉴-2020\彩\好达年鉴 彩页\4领导调研\006-10月30日,国家民政部党组成员、副部长李文,国家民政部政策法规司司长刘行等一行深入区开展民政工作专题调研1参观社区党建工作2019.10.30 (1).tif

longpath.jpg


Sometimes,

The path behind @ was deleted, but the picture did not come out.

and prompts:

error.jpg

 

I can't guess why, but it feels good the first time, there will be errors afterwards, even if it is the same picture, it will go wrong after multiple executions.

 

Also, the script should only target the selection, not all.
Otherwise, there are too many changes and it may not be safe to control.

Can you share your IDML.

So that I can be able to test it.

Check Path of your folder whether it contains any special characters, if there is any remove it. And again you try it.

It will place.

Hi~ Sunil Yadav.
Sample files are not necessary.

Because my file is nothing special.

 I just create a new ID file at will, and then input 2-3 lines of Chinese characters. Join anywhere@@

I think the key point is the poor support for long path, especially for Chinese character path.

 

You can find a picture and test it under the path I provide.

 

To test it again, use two @ @ @ in a paragraph, like this:

-------------------------------------------------------------------

这段文字是任意打的,这里有两个@your path1@这是第一张图,接着又有一张图@your path2@多试几种情况就有可能遇到问题。

-------------------------------------------------------------------

 

I hope this script works only for selection, for all possible insecurity.

My ID version: InDesign CC 2021 latest version.

Thank you very much

Do remember one thing, In Windows OS length of file path can be at max upto 259 characters including "/" as well.

If path is longer than that, it will not take. And moreover if there are any special characters which are not allowed to come in file path () special characters, you need to be aware of those too.

As far as script is concern, if you can provide me yor sample IDML file with those path in the file, or may be just those sample paths in a XML file or just those string, then I can be able to test it & try to resolve your concern.

Hello~

Please use Chinese path.

Is my script wrong?

Tonight, I came across 006.jpg on another computer. If I put it directly on disk D, the import will also prompt wrong.

 

The files used are here (valid for 21 days)

 

test this.jpg

Try this updated snippet & let me know :

There seems to be no problem.

It's just a run, and the paths on all the pages have changed.

If you it can target at the current text frame, it is very safe and perfect.

Thank you very much

Here is the script for such. This script will find only inside the first selected Text Frame. If there is no frame is selected code will find it in entire document.

 

//======================
app.findGrepPreferences = NothingEnum.nothing;
app.changeGrepPreferences = NothingEnum.nothing;
app.findGrepPreferences.findWhat = "(?<=@)([^@]+)(?=@)";
var allFound = getAll();
for(var i = 0; i < allFound.length; i){
    var allContent = allFound[i].texts[0].contents;
    var filePath = File(allContent.toString().replace(/\\/g,'/'));
    if(filePath.exists){
        var object = allFound[i].insertionPoints[0].parent.characters.itemByRange(allFound[i].texts[0].characters[0].index-1, allFound[i].texts[0].characters[-1].index+1).place(filePath);
        app.documents[0].recompose();
        if(app.documents[0].objectStyles.item("mypic").isValid){
            object[0].parent.appliedObjectStyle = app.documents[0].objectStyles.item("mypic");
            }
        }
    else i++;
    app.documents[0].recompose();
    allFound = getAll();
    }
//======================
function getAll(){
    if(app.selection != null){
        if(app.selection[0] instanceof TextFrame) return app.selection[0].findGrep();
        else return app.documents[0].findGrep();
        }
    else return app.documents[0].findGrep();

The previous script is right, but this one seems to have some problems

Object mypic not recognized, object style not applied

There is an error prompt:

After placing image, that text frame is going overset. Because of that code is not able to get that object to apply object style. For this you add few lines of code.

Most importantly, without having full understanding of code never say this code is wrong or that code is right.

First get complete understanding, then proceed further.

Try this snippet:

//======================
app.findGrepPreferences = NothingEnum.nothing;
app.changeGrepPreferences = NothingEnum.nothing;
app.findGrepPreferences.findWhat = "(?<=@)([^@]+)(?=@)";
var allFound = getAll();
for(var i = 0; i < allFound.length; i){
    var allContent = allFound[i].texts[0].contents;
    var filePath = File(allContent.toString().replace(/\\/g,'/'));
    if(filePath.exists){
        var parentFrame = allFound[i].insertionPoints[0].parentTextFrame[0];
        var object = allFound[i].insertionPoints[0].parent.characters.itemByRange(allFound[i].texts[0].characters[0].index-1, allFound[i].texts[0].characters[-1].index+1).place(filePath);
        app.documents[0].recompose();
        var oldGB = parentFrame.geometricBounds;
        if(parentFrame.overflows){
            parentFrame.fit(FitOptions.FRAME_TO_CONTENT);
            }
        if(app.documents[0].objectStyles.item("mypic").isValid){
            object[0].parent.appliedObjectStyle = app.documents[0].objectStyles.item("mypic");
            }
        parentFrame.geometricBounds = oldGB;
        }
    else i++;
    app.documents[0].recompose();
    allFound = getAll();
    }
//======================
function getAll(){
    if(app.selection != null){
        if(app.selection[0] instanceof TextFrame) return app.selection[0].findGrep();
        else return app.documents[0].findGrep();
        }
    else return app.documents[0].findGrep();
    }

It works.

If there are two text boxes. (you can copy two of the same)

① You select a single text box and execute

Only the pictures in this text box are imported.

The results are as follows

tab--bjg.jpg

② If you select nothing, all the pictures in the text box will be imported.

 

③ If you select the text in a text box, all the pictures in the text box will be imported

The report is the same as above. It's just that the source is different.

You can test it by copying two text boxes.

When I select content, I should only execute the selected content.

Even if there are two paths in a text box, only the selected path should be executed

It's already very good, but I don't understand:

There will be only one selection in this box.

If you select only one of the other text boxes, all will be converted.

It should convert only the selected.
