  1. Dimension / Fraction script not rotating text properly

    After installing the Illustrator 25.1 update, some of the features of the dimension / fraction script are not rotating text properly. Some of the options should rotate the height measurement 90º; it remains horizontal with no rotation.

  2. Add ability to retrieve text on path options via C++ API

    Currently, it is not clear or not possible how we can get the current text on the corve element's baseline and effect settings.
    Make them accessible via some API.

  3. 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);

  4. 24.3 causes my extension to crash illustrator

    Hi,

    I've noticed that my extension Khronos Maker have started to crash Illustrator after updating to 24.3. I'm not sure what's causing it and hope to get some help to identify where the problem is.

    In terms of code, what's causing the crash is the sequence of following:

    myDocument.textFrames.add();
    myLayer.position = [coordinates.x, coordinates.y];
    myLayer.contents = graphic;

    app.undo()

    //and then running the code above again after the undo causes a crash
    myDocument.textFrames.add();
    myLayer.position = [coordinates.x, coordinates.y];
    myLayer.contents = graphic;

    This is strange since hitting cntrl + Z (windows) instead of the script, no crash. And in version 24.2.3 everything works fine.…

  5. 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

  6. Unable to get AppleScript that worked in AI 2019 to work in AI 2020.

    We have an export in AppleScript we run for our AI 2019 graphics, but when we run it in 2020, we get an error that the file we're working in cannot be found, even though the path is correct. I can delete everything but one line (doesn't matter which line) in the script and I still get the error. Is there a basic trick tog et AppleScript that work in 2019 to work in 2020?

  10. Close swatch library

    Would it be possible to add the ability to close a swatch library panel through some sort of handle?

    There are cases where we have multiple swatch libraries open and would like to close one/some of them upon some event.

  11. 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.

  13. Step and repeat batch script needed

    I need a script that can step and repeat hundreds of AI images from one size (scale in height/width) to another and then have the same script save the image to a web friendly JPEG format. Is there such a tool/script already in existence, or can something like this be created? Note - the original AI files do not all have the same step and repeat pattern, which makes it tricky.

  15. Wish Applescript could create more extensive dialog boxes in Illustrator.

    It would be great to be able to create dialogs with radio buttons, check boxes etc., as can currently be created with Applescript in InDesign.
