Various tools to help rebuild lines/paragraphs/stories of editable text from characters previously converted to outline or text split into several frames.

Although it is generally not recommended to open in Illustrator a PDF generated, for example, from InDesign or QuarkXPress, or simply generated from Illustrator but saved as PDF/X, we eventually end doing it at some point when the source file is not available and we simply want to pick up some graphic assets to reuse in a new design work. We can notice then that the paragraphs are always split into several left-aligned point texts, that some characters originally affected by an horizontal scale in the source file appear affected by an inverse vertical scale and a different point size, that some characters, especially dingbats, sometimes turn out converted to outlines, etc. This panel baptized «Text rebuild tools» gathers a few functions — some of them previously published on Scriptopedia.org as separate jsx scripts — to help recreate and rebuild editable lines/paragraphs/stories from these items.
