Edit Appearances with Scripting
Currently it appears only 1 appearance fill is available via scripting, and Illustrator spits out the value of whichever one is selected. What I'd like to be able to do, is loop through the appearances of layers for example, record those attributes(including layer opacity and blending modes) and apply those to fills within a single shape. As there are many more stacked attributes within appearances, it may not be this simple, but it'd be much appreciated.
It would be great if there is an easier way for us to modify elements in the appearance palette via script. For example there isn't a way to modify a warp text using a script because I am unable to call on the bend% or adjust the values for horizontal/vertical distortion. I am unable to skew a text object while having it still editable. If this does exist, I am unable to find any documentation.
