  2. .ait Files not showing.

    It would be great if indesign and Illustrator would use the same scripts. I have several in indesign that I desperately need in illustrator. ALSO it would be very great if we could assign Shortcuts to script. As well as adding a scripts Panel like in Indesign.

    Thank you.

  4. "adapt workspace to the illustration limit" doesn't work on script command

    Illustrator 2020 won't crop the workspace to the illustration limit on a script (not implemented).

    I need to make a script who :
    - select all
    - object > workspace > crop workspace to the illustration limit
    - ....

  5. Missing languages from character panel for automation

    I need to automate the language parameter from the Character panel on Illustrator. It is already available for most languages but it looks like the recent languages that have been added in Illustrator are not available for automation. We need to set this up to have the correct hyphenation in the text frames. For example, if we activate the hyphenation for illustrator files that contains Thai strings, it won’t hyphenate the strings correctly until we set the language.

    The list available for automation can be found from the Illustrator scripting library on macOS (it contains everything we can use for…

  6. Please make unlinking symbols available via scripting

    As a motion designer I often transfer graphics from Illustrator to After Effects using Overlord from battleaxe.co

    Unfortunately the developer can not access unlinking symbols via scripting so this process still has to be done with a workaround. Especially with projects that involve a fair mount of symbols (like infographics or UI design) this would be very convenient.

    Thank you!

  7. Change colormode of swatchcolors with spotColorKind

    Hello Adobe,

    I want to change the colormode of a swatch with javascript.
    I do not want to change the document mode but I want to change specific swatches in my swatch library.

    Now some of my swatches/colors are RGB spotcolors. I want to change them into CMYK spotcolor.

    This is almost impossible now because spotColorKind is now read only :(

    Now I have to:
    - create new swatches with exactly the same colors and with different name
    - attach new color to my pathitems
    - delete old swatches
    - rename swatches

    I only wanted to change the colormode of…

  9. Change font of a selected text to "Arial" instead of "ArialMT"

    Unless the command for this is hidden from me, I cannot seem to find a solution to this age-old problem.

    Where I work, I need the three following things to be true:
    1) Create an SVG that preserves editing capabilities thereby eliminating the need for more than one file. So, only one SVG file, and not an AI + SVG file.
    2) The fonts within that SVG must not break when displayed in a browser. The infamous "ArialMT" problem.
    3) Must not require a find-and-replace action to correct the font after the export. All actions must be done in Illustrator.
