Obj Info button array

Recommended Posts

I have been trying to set up a macro that will click specified button on Obj Info palette depending on trigger, e.g. Command+3 (on numeric keypad) clicks bottom right button. This used to be easy as the button display was static. Now it expands and contracts based on an objects dimensions. However, I can work round this but need to ascertain how may steps in button expansion there is and x/y dimension ratio that triggers expansion. 


For a horizontal rectangle (macro only works with rectangles) where dims x > y it appears that once x/y is ≥ 1.11 then button array expands. Also, I can only detect a single expansion.


For a vertical rectangle where x > y it appears that once y/x is ≥ 1.12 then button array expands. Also, I can only detect a single expansion. No steps due to in x/y ratio.


Can anyone confirm that there is only a single expansion of the button array?


And someone from tech support confirm these ratios as the triggers for button array expansion?


Apologies if posting in wrong forum.
