Hi Martin,

One thing you can do as a start anyway, is to modify your ExtractText.py
file as I show in the wiki:


This also shows the syntax for capturing these values from a document.
Note that the contents of the list created by getHGuides() are floating
point numbers, which is why I had to do a string conversion for this
script. If you wanted to use the values to create lines, you would use
hguides[0], and so on.
