Illustrator v25.1 doesn't recognize some AppleScript commands
Illustrator v25.1 doesn't recognize some AppleScript commands, specifically important to me: Apply Character Styles, Embed, and Rotate. Delivers error: Illustrator doesn't understand the message. Has never happened in any previous version of Illustrator.9 votes
Justification bug, cannot set 'center' in v24.2 using AppleScript
Running a script to set the justification of text works perfectly for left and right, but no longer works for center. Putting the example script given in the latest Illustrator CC Scripting Guide, page 122, into a Script Editor visually compiles centre differently to left and right and only works if you remove or comment out the line justifying to center.4 votes
Align/Distribute support for AppleScript
It would be great if we could have support for Align/Distribute in AppleScript. I believe Illustrator's UI functionality in this area is the same as InDesign, so using the exact same terminology would be excellent.
A little nit—AppleScript is one word, not two, so that needs to be changed in the "Category" choices in this forum. Thanks!4 votes
Illustrator 25.2 missing scriptability Info.plist entry
Illustrator's Info.plist file no longer has an entry for
NSAppleScriptEnabled. That means normal attempts to open its scripting dictionary fail.3 votes

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.
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?1 vote
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.1 vote

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.1 vote
