Moving object after click action Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes

I'm badly stuck with a task here and need the help of some experts.

This is what I want to do: When clicking on an object (shape) in presentation mode, one or more other objects should move (by changing their origin?). Sounds quite easy, but unfortunately my Applescript knowledge is less than none.

Maybe someone can point me to the right direction? Thanks in advance! :)

I'm not sure that this kind of thing really works all that well - the screen updating seems a bit intermittent. Dbl-click, wait a bit, may work or may not, then suddenly moves twice ... not ideal for real presentations ...

tell application id "OGfl"
	-- Get the unique Id of the shape which contains the action script
	set lngId to id of self
	-- apply a movement to all the other shapes on the canvas
	tell canvas of self
		repeat with oShape in (shapes where id is not lngId)
			set lstOrigin to origin of oShape
			set item 1 of lstOrigin to (item 1 of lstOrigin) + 100
			set origin of oShape to lstOrigin
		end repeat
	end tell
end tell
Thank you so much, Rob! It works perfect for my purpose!
