Selecting Components

Category: Annotations
Author:
Description: A demonstation program, based on Bernhard Schaffer's script Align-Annotations.The aim is to demonstrate how to use the parent/child component system which describes how annotations (lines, circles, text and other images) are placed in an image document. To use this, create a blank document with a handful of the above components on it.The script identifies all the components, their type (see the Help documentation for the definition of the various types), their selection status and there position. The script then selects all those components which were not selected and deselects all those which were. Finally, the all annotations are moveed 50 pixels, then 0.5s later their position is restored.
