textRange.words counts words wrong in a wrong way
If you try to calculate a number of words and store them for later using textRange.words and a punctuation marks placed one space after the word, as demonstrated in the video, Ai cuts words in wrong places, resulting words being trimmed.
This breaks all scripts that rely on this method.
You have to rename 'words-bug.txt' into 'words-bug.js' and 'words-bug.pdf' to 'words-bug.ai' to test it, since UV does not allow to upload these type formats.9 votes

Problems with scripts and BridgeTalk using Illustrator 25.3.1 on M1 Mac
I have a handful of scripts that have stopped working after switching from an Intel Mac mini to an M1 Mac mini. The scripts will run as expected if I use the Intel version of Illustrator on the M1 Mac mini, but they return this error when run using the M1 version of Illustrator on the same machine "TARGET COULD NOT BE LAUNCHED(59)". The current culprit seems to be BridgeTalk. Any help would be appreciated, thx!13 votes
The workaround for this is to update to the latest build, 25.3.1, which doesn't contain Bridge related changes for Mac ARM — that's why this error is happening.
If you still have the issue, please comment back.
