Use case  description

This script simply finds all text over a specified size and makes them smaller.  This is a result of a desing being corrupted by large text heights.  It was not possible to correct the texts in the GUI so this scirpt was used to locate and correct the text heights.


This is an in-process script.  To run open a design in Expedition and drag-n-drop the script onto Expedition or run through the keyin command.  You can adjust the heights and units used in the script to meet your specific needs.
