  3. ExtendScript Debugger 2.0.3 for VSCode fails on "doScript" method

    When a script containing "doScript" method is run from VSCode to AI 2022 using any version of ExtendScript Debugger 2.x it locks up Ai 2022 requiring a force quit. VSCode must also be reloaded before any debugging can continue.

    Rolling ExtendScript Debugger back to v1.1.2 eliminates the failure at the expense of the more advanced features of v2.x.

  4. exportForScreens() file output naming issues

    Natively File > Export > Export for Screens has an option to add a suffix to the output file name, but in scripting the last parameter adds a prefix to the output file name not a suffix as it should to match the desk top user options.

    exportForScreens(path, ExportForScreensType, ExportForScreensOptions, ExportForScreensItemToExport, "This adds a prefix NOT a suffix");

  5. .duplicate() does not update selection, crashing Illustrator

    selection[0].duplicate()
    // redraw()
    alert(selection.length)

    when running this script in Illustrator, you will see that both the original selection plus its duplicate will be selected, but the alert will display 1. Running this script in debug shows that selection only contains one object despite .duplicate() being used. This causes a corruption(?) issue where in reality there are now two objects selected but selection only shows one to be selected unless you do redraw(). This discrepancy will cause Illustrator to crash when trying to set the selection (in specific circumstances) on another line after the .duplicate().

    In other situations, whether one or…

  6. placedItem name property doesn't work

    Hello,

    I'm trying to get placedItem name, but it is empty

    //Get active document
    var activeDocument = app.activeDocument;

    //Get all links (or placed items)
    for (var i = 0; i < activeDocument.placedItems.length; i++) {
    var imageName = activeDocument.placedItems[i].name;
    alert("imageName = " + imageName);
    }

    activeDocument.placedItems[i].name returns empty string

  7. Unable to create file or folder object in Illustrator CC2020

    I tried to create a file or folder object with a slash (colon) in its name in Illustrator CC2020, but I couldn't.
    Also, I was not able to get the file object from PlacedItem.
    The same thing happens with AppleScript.

    In Photoshop CC2020 and InDesign CC2020,I was able to create.

    NG Case(JSX)

    [File location] desktop > 2020/01 > 01/01Image01.jpg ==> [Full path] /Users/***/desktop/2020:01/01:01Image.jpg

    var fObj = File('/Users/***/desktop/2020:01/01:01_Image.jpg'); ==> invalid object
    fObj.exists ==> false
    fObj.name ==> none

  9. Add ability to create a File object from an HTTP endpoint

    Adding the ability to create a File object from an HTTP endpoint rather than a physical document on disk would be very useful for scenarios where you want to reference a linked item from an online asset management system, where it is centrally stored and versioned, as opposed to being forced to download the file to disk. This would also help with management of access and security relating to these assets.
