Go get XPress - Part 6

It's been quite a while since the last post. Busy working on my bread and butter. Anyway, here is a sample code of insertText(aText), the 6th function of the suite of XPress bridge functions.

on insertText(aText)
  tell application "QuarkXPress"
    set contents of selection to aText
  end tell
end insertText

I will leave the last function for you to finish. The trackDown() function is optional and must be the most difficult part of the suite.

For upcoming posts, I will pick up more practical topics for the most translators. And more movie clips too.

Look forward to your latest practical ideas. Incidentally, what programme do you use for recording what you do on screen in the movies you post on here?

The program that I use to capture Mac operation is Snapz Pro X of Ambrosia.
