Applescript: How to create a group or subgraph? Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
The only way I have had luck with so far is to make the shapes directly on the canvas, and then use assemble to put them into a subgraph or group.

Is there a way to create new shapes with at=aSubgraph.graphics.end? Or to add existing shapes to an existing subgraph?

And lastly, is there a way for a script to select elements for auto-layout only of the selected ones?

Thanks!
 
Code:
set theResult to assemble reference 
     subgraph boolean 
     table shape list
On restricting auto layout on the basis of selection, I think you might have to create a temporary layer at run-time, to temporarily hold the subset (defined by selection status) which you want to lock or unlock for auto-layout.
 
This kind of code seems, as I think you have probably already discovered, to trip an exception:

Code:
tell application id "OGfl"
	tell canvas of front window
		set refSubGraphics to a reference to graphics of first item of subgraphs
		
		set oShape to make new shape at end of refSubGraphics with properties {size:{90, 90}}
	end tell
end tell

(Might be worth asking Help > Send Feedback whether that is by design)

but this seems to work:

Code:
tell application id "OGfl"
	tell canvas of front window
		set refSubGraphics to a reference to graphics of first item of subgraphs
		set oShape to make new shape with properties {size:{90, 90}}
		move (oShape) to end of refSubGraphics
	end tell
end tell
