OSX Tiger/Quark 6.5 problem here.
I have a Quark document with about 50 style sheets. I am converting it to InDesign.
I really, really don’t want to have to faff around looking at the font (name and size), leading, space before, space after, tracking, etc. etc. of each style, then recreate it in InDesign. That’d be really dull. So: I’m trying to make an applescript which will do the following:
Repeat with every paragraph style present in Quark
Get a load of properties of it
Go to InDesign
Create a new style with all those properties, with the same name
I’m stuck at the second line! I can do
get properties of style specs
which gives me a vast list of styles.
I can also do
set paragraphStyles to name of every style spec
But what I can’t seem to do is
set paragraphStyles to name of every style spec repeat with i from 1 to count paragraphStyles set MyLeading to leading of style spec (item i of paragraphStyles) set MyFont to font of style spec (item i of paragraphStyles) etc. etc. etc.
Any pointers on how to get individual properties would be very gratefully received.
