Getting the line length of a curved frame

Recommended Posts

Have a project where I thought Text on a Curve frames would work great. Haven't ever used it before. Wanted the text to flow between multiple linked curve frames... but alas, it seems that you can't link the curved text frames. Is there any way to get the line/path length of this type of frame to get a object reference and write my own linking routine? Went looking for a function similar to FindTextFrame or FindGraphicFrame but no luck. Any ideas?

You're correct that Text on a Curve frames can't be linked. Nor can the frames be accessed with FindTextFrame or a similar call.


However, you can copyfit Text on a Curve frames, and the OnCopyfit callback function is indeed invoked for them. So you can name the frame, then write some custom code in OnCopyfit to handle the case where FusionPro.Composition.CurrentFlow.name matches your frame's name, and adjust the FusionPro.Composition.CurrentFlow.content as needed.
