Create a – Text Block – out of selected Point Text Items

textBlock

This script creates a “Block” of text out of Selected Point Text Items, that is, it re-sizes each frame so¬†they all have the same width. Back then when I wrote the script I didn’t know this layout style was called “SlabType”, otherwise I would have picked a more suitable name, anyway, here’s my “textBlock” script. Please note that the final Block of Text is converted to Outlines.
