Re-sync Text Bounding Box

Re-sync Text Bounding Box is a simple script which will go through each and every text element present in a png document (be it inside a page or a layer or a state) and re-align its bounding box. This script can be used on any png document which has text boxes shifted or are going out of sync.<br> a. The script, "Shift Bounding Box To Text Image" will keep the image fixed at its current location and re-sync or shift the bounding box to it.<br> b. The script, "Shift Text Image Inside Bounding Box" will keep the bounding box fixed at its current location and re-sync or shift the Text image inside it.<br> Note:<br> 1. Any CS3 text elements if present inside a Group will get re-rendered on running this script.<br> 2. Running this script once on a document will correct all the text bounding boxes which were shifted, at one go. Note that this correction is for that session only. You can again come across text shifting issue while working. Recommended usage would be to run this script once on a document after opening it.<br> 3. This script will not touch any of the CS3 text elements present in the document.

Appreciate the attempt, but Adobe has hosed CS4 text too much, the problems keep appearing with new text, and old "fixed" text can get bounced out of alignment, especially after a copy / paste.

I'm about to go back to CS3. Where's the love for Fireworks, Adobe? This isn't going to make me switch to Illustrator for these tasks. If you don't like it, sell it to Corel. Hell they'd do a better job. Their vector node handling trumps Illustrator anyway. 15-Oct-09 Rating = 5

Installed it ok but it just doesnt work. Either it doesnt move the text, or the majority of it disappears!

I'm running MAC OS 10.5.7 and suggestions?

Thanks Arun for uploading the 2 scripts.

Now the scripts have 2 options. The characters will move to the box containing it OR the box will move to accommodate the characters.
