Hello, one and all,
I’m a long-time user of KM but new to the forum. Hopefully, someone can help solve a drag and drop problem I have.
In Adobe InDesign, there is a palette called CC Libraries (sod’s law it can’t be scripted). It’s a list of icons, which if you click on one, hold down the alt key and drag it to your document, it places the item for you.
It’s similar to duplicating a folder in the finder: clicking and holding on a folder icon, pressing the alt key so a + appears, then dragging the folder to another area to duplicate it.
The macro does the following:
Open CC Library palette (panel)
Move cursor to Search bar in palette
(ICON for dl1 now appears)
Move cursor over the icon for “dl1”
Click with alt - drag to centre of screen
When running the macro it seems to work but it’s as if the alt-press with click and drag doesn’t engage properly.
Any help would be much appreciated.
If I have an InDesign file open with a picture frame in the correct place and run this macro, it will alt-drag it over to the centre and makes a duplicate.
However, as soon as I try and apply this macro to drag the icon ("dl1") in the CC Libraries palette, it fails. The cursor moves correctly but the item isn't placed.
