Hi Team,

Select the text by textstylerange, find the PostScript font name and change the font to the corresponding one.

 

Sample Input data shared below:

First point is not clear. I don't understand how and where you want to do that.

 

btw did you find your answer in your previous thread:

Find text and redefine font family name, style, size and leading.

(I'm asking as you did not respond for given answer of the other user)

Hi @Kukurykus ,

For point 1, select the text by text-style-range (A continuous range of identical text formatting attributes).

For above snap, style ranges are described. They have similar properties, but different in color.

Note: I found the result in the previous questions, which was very helpful to my study. But the given result did not exactly match my questions.

Please allow some time to respond, I have already mentioned this as my schedule. I will do it when everything is done.

Thanks for understanding.

Thanks

Most of the code is taken from the output of the ScriptListener plugin.
You can also use this script Script Events Listener
 
P.S. "action script object model" - I did not come across any documentation on this.
