  1. Running an Action from script

    Hello,
    In Illustrator CC latest update, my following script does not work:
    1- Select a couple paths (in script) (all of them close paths in different groups)
    2- execute my action which offset paths with certain amount

    The problem is in this new version after the action dis-select all of them except one, but before this version it worked and keep all of my selection paths still as selected ( by path I mean the new offset paths, but for all of them)

    It really made trouble for my script in the company, because some computer still does not have…

    This issue is happening due to a security feature added in Illustrator to inform the user if any external application tries to execute a script in Illustrator.

    Solution: Update your Logitech options app to the latest version – https://www.logitech.com/en-in/product/options

    https://helpx.adobe.com/illustrator/kb/fix-scripting-error.html

    We heard from some users that above solution is not working for them, we are investigating this issue. Meanwhile users can try the below workaround

    Create a JSX file with the following content:
    app.preferences.setBooleanPreference(“ShowExternalJSXWarning”, false);
    Save the above JSX file. Now, go to File > Scripts > Other Script, and choose the newly saved jsx file.

    This will suppress the warning dialog and run the script.

  3. Applescript "open without dialogs" no longer works

    I have an Applescript that has the statement

    open (thePDFName as alias) without dialogs

    In Adobe Illustrator 2019, it works. In Adobe Illustrator 2020, it gives me an "unable to open file" error. When I comment out "without dialogs", it opens the file, but then naturally pops open a dialog (not helpful when you are opening dozens of files!)

    MacOS 10.13.6, not sure what other information would be needed.

  4. 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.
