Another script question: trying to insert and format catalog numbers in a set of parts I'm working on, as a text box at the bottom of each page of each part.

Almost everything works, but I can't seem to get the script to create a text box . I'm trying:

text tool
mouse 320, 200 (I've tried several variations)
double click
menu item "Edit/Paste"

And then on to the formatting.

So far no luck creating a text box automatically. It's not a big deal: Doing the first three steps manually is not a hardship.

as far as I tried it worked well after changing your 2nd & 3rd line simply to

...
double click xxx/yyy
...

(edit + paste obviously only works if something has been copied before)
