Set text faux styles with scripting
on Jun 8, 2015 at 6:39:10 pm

Hi can anyone tell me how to set faux styles on text via a script? The Scripting Guide documentation for the TextDocument object does not seem to list any attributes for Faux Bold, Faux Italic, Faux Small Caps, etc. however, these settings are indeed cleared by TextDocument.resetCharStyle();

I tried textDocument.fauxBold = true; but I received the error "unable to set "fauxBold" It is a read only attribute"

Is it really not possible to set faux styles through scripting?

Yes (no?), it's really not possible to set faux styles through scripting.
