  1. IllustratorSaveOptions in C# .NET is not working anymore as expected

    For more than a decade the following Illustrator script has been applied via C# .NET in combination with all existing Illustrator versions (sourcecode):

    typelib.IllustratorSaveOptions saveOptions = new typelib.IllustratorSaveOptions();
    saveOptions.Compatibility = typelib.AiCompatibility.aiIllustrator8;
    saveOptions.FlattenOutput = typelib.AiOutputFlattening.aiPreserveAppearance;
    DestDoc.SaveAs(sPath, saveOptions);

    All over the internet we see a lot of people using the same code above (applying the exact same idea) also in other programming languages.

    Following test has been done with Illustrator versions CS, CS2, CS3, CS5, CS6, etc. on the latest Windows 10 operating system and VS2012: draw 2 intersecting rectangles: above yellow, the other red. A transparency Difference has been set on…

  2. Failure to create artboards when reading file with SDK in CC 2018

    Issue occurs in CC 2018 when creating artboards during the GoFileFormat message handler in a plugin that registers its own file format.

    In previous versions you could create artboards up to the size of the canvas using AIArtboard::SetPosition without any errors. In CC 2018 when you call AIArtboard::SetPosition it seems to compare the position to the result of AIDocument::GetDocumentMaxArtboardBounds and if it is outside of the maximum bounds it returns an error code. In CC 2018, the maximum art boards for a new document seem to be based on the /artboard setting in the preferences file, which in turn seems…

  3. GetPresetSettings function doesn't work correctly in CC 2017 and later

    In Illustrator CC 2017 (22.x) and CC 2018 (23.x) the AIDocumentList::GetPresetSettings function is broken. It still returns an error if the preset doesn't exist, but if the preset does exist, it returns 0, but doesn't fill in the AINewDocumentPreset structure.

  5. 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 =

  7. Illustrator CC 2018 - CEP 8 HTML Extension Resize Issue

    We are experiencing resizing issue in the latest CEP version. Our extension allows user to resize extension's window, however whenever any navigation occur, window size resets. Problem exists in Illustrator CC 2018 (22.0.1), everything is working fine in previous version (CC 2017).
    We already tried different geometry settings and extension UI types, but problem persists and seems to be related to engine itself.

    We successfully reproduced this issue with official git hub sample extension. Steps to reproduce:
    1. Open sample extension with debug mode enabled
    2. Resize window
    3. Change window location in console to any other page
    4. After…

    We have the fix available in the latest release. Please update Illustrator using Adobe Creative Cloud application to the latest build for version Illustrator CC 23.0.
    Please refer to our knowledge base FAQhttps://illustrator.uservoice.com/knowledgebase/articles/1844590 if you face difficulty in update.
    Or get in touch with us at any of the other support channels – https://helpx.adobe.com/support.html

    Warm Regards,

    Adobe. Make It an Experience.

  8. Possible bug: Crash after script runs... runs OK in ESTK.

    I believe this might be a bug since it crashed Illustrator rather than the script crashing gracefuly.

    I have a script which, when completed, crashes Illustrator. The script runs fine when ran from within the ESTK but crashes when ran from the AI File->Scripts menu. Attached is the crash log. I cannot post the script itself here but am willing to send it to an Adobe employee privately if needed.

  9. 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

  10. 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.

  11. 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.
