I keep having to do the same ting over and over. I get a text file with a 2-line header and the there is one list of names. I need to keep the header full width of the page and then have the two groups in two columns. The two groups don't always have the same number of people, but they are labels "Group 1" and "Group 2" Currently I just have a previously used group of three frames and I just drag the two single column frames to the appropriate height, but there are so many of these it would be great to have something automated. Like select the entire text block, make 3 frames all the same length, etc. Any ideas? I do vba and actions in PhotoShop all the time, but scripts elude me.
Sounds like you may be doing some sort of text merge. The heading style can be set to "span" columns. That way you would need only one (two column) frame.
