character fill in macros

How can I include the 'character fill' command in a macro?

3 REPLIES 3

The macro below is a simplied version showing the syntax. The last line of the macro ends up applying the $ISO_Black color at 10%.

Macro Apply_Fill
Define E1 as Element

Create Text 0 0 "Test"

E1 = ActiveDoc.FirstSelectedElement

E1.Fill = "{Ref '$ISO_BLACK' 10}"

End Macro

is there no way to do this using foundation's built in macro recording capability?

The recorder is a good starting point for a number of macro tasks, but what I'm assuming you are looking for requires a loop which can not be created by recording. This is a common cut-off point for macro recorders.
