Document.ScratchArea Property (Publisher)
Returns a ScratchArea object for an a given document.
expression A variable that represents a Document object.
The ScratchArea object is a collection of objects on the scratch page. The ScratchArea object is not in the Pages collection because it is fundamentally not a page; its only similarity to a page is that it can contain objects.
This example sets the variable object as the first shape on the scratch area of the active document.
