  1. ActiveX component can't create object: 'Illustrator.Application'

    We recently upgraded to CC 2019. version 23.0.6.

    Vbscripts are now unable to execute. They fail on:

    Set appRef = CreateObject('Illustrator.Application')

    with the error: ActiveX component can't create object: 'Illustrator.Application'

    This functionality is important to our workflow.

  2. Javascript textFonts.getByName() throws Illustrator error 1430996551

    Trying to use Javascript textFonts.getByName() throws Illustrator error 1430996551. Stopped working on some machines out of the blue, without any Illustrator update. Still works on at least one mac in the studio (same Illustrator version as on other computers).

  3. scriptui

    Hello.

    On windows 7 and 10 (reproduced on my machine and a colleagues), when OS text scaling is higher than 100%, the dropdownLists in scriptUI don't work correctly.

    See attached, the horizontal and vertical scaling of the dropdown is smaller than the text it's meant to display, leading to options not being shown.

    It looks like the UI is being scaled after the dimensions are calculated, and the dropdown is just not updated at all (vertically or horizontally).

    This is a bit of an issue because our design team recently got high DPI monitors and they're having to disable UI…

  6. kAIXMLNameChangedNotifier behaviour change

    The following code worked perfectly in 2015, 2015.1, 2017 but in 2018 it broke.

    My notifier is created like so :

        error = sAINotifier->AddNotifier(fPluginRef, kCinewarePluginName, kAIXMLNameChangedNotifier, &fUIDChangeNotifier);
    

    It is correctly triggered on the renaming of an art element. This then calls the following code :

    ASErr ArtSelectionRenamedNotifier(AINotifierMessage *message)
    {

        ASErr error = kNoErr;
    
    fprintf(stderr,"ArtSelectionRenamedNotifier\n");
    //First get the AiArtHandle
    AIPluginGroupMessage* myMessage = (AIPluginGroupMessage*)message;
    fprintf(stderr,"ArtSelectionRenamedNotifier msg type[%s]\n",message->type);
    //The relabelled art
    AIArtHandle relabelledArt = myMessage->preEditArt;
    fprintf(stderr,"ArtSelectionRenamedNotifier msg preEditArt[%p] is valid Art?[%s]\n",relabelledArt,sAIArt->ValidArt(relabelledArt, true)?"YES":"NO");
    //Verify it has a UID
    ai::UnicodeString relabelledArtUUID;
    //The artUIDName will be empty if not yet made
    if (relabelledArt)
    {
    error =

  8. update link to illustrator 2017 sdk on https://www.adobe.com/devnet/illustrator/sdk.html

    The move from https://www.adobe.com/devnet/illustrator/sdk.html
    to https://console.adobe.io/downloads/ai left behind a broken link to the 2017 sdk.
    Easiest thing to do would be to update the 2017 sdk link on the old devnet page.

    We are moving away from devnet to the Adobe io site. Moving forward that will the place to get all of Adobe SDK.
    We also have an early access program for our plugin partners. You may join our prerelease site you will get SDK builds way before we release it on public facing pages.
    Here is the link to join Illustrator prerelease http://adobe.ly/1Q3rCPI

  9. Applescript convert to paths deletes image used as transparency mask

    Since Illustrator 21.1.0 (okay before) there is an problem with Applescript command "convert to paths (every text frame of current document)"

    If the text has an image as a transparency mask the script will delete the image. This does not happen if I do this manually within Illustrator. The problem still exists with the latest version of Illustrator.

  10. javascript doc.close() after error

    https://forums.adobe.com/message/9853322#9853322
    for details

    When you close the file in the script
    After that, an error (1346458189 ('PARM')) occurs with high probability.
    Closed processing is closed up to what is not closed or can not be closed
    It looks like a bug.
