Create multi-line point text from applescript in CS - Adobe Illustrator Macintosh

Hey, i need to create some descriptive tags in illustrator CS using a script (to show the size of an object), and I want the tag lines to be 2-line, like: 5" HIGH as a single point text object, but it doesn't seem to be working: set heightInches to (my p2i(height of b) as text) & "\"\nHIGH" set heightTagX to (item 1 of position of b) + (width of b) + textSize * 3 set heightTagY to (item 2 of position of b) - ((height of b) / 2) + textSize * 3 make new text frame with properties {name:"heightTag", ...

    Hey, i need to create some descriptive tags in illustrator CS using a script (to show the size of an object), and I want the tag lines to be 2-line, like:

    5"
    HIGH

    as a single point text object, but it doesn't seem to be working:



    set heightInches to (my p2i(height of b) as text) & "\"\nHIGH"
    set heightTagX to (item 1 of position of b) + (width of b) + textSize * 3
    set heightTagY to (item 2 of position of b) - ((height of b) / 2) + textSize * 3
    make new text frame with properties {name:"heightTag", kind:point text, contents:heightInches, position:{heightTagX, heightTagY}}



    that script is creating the text I want, but without the newline in it.

    any ideas?
