  3. Feature: Ability to modify elements in the appearance palette.

    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.

  4. Add documentation for exporting Windows Metafile (WMF)

    There's currently a hidden parameter 'parm' that is required to export as WMF in kAIExportDocumentAction. Please document what this is for and what value is required.

  5. 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.

  6. Allow C++ SDK to load swatch library (ase) from filepath

    Currently, with ExtendScript, we're able to load a swatch library from a filepath and show its panel. In the C++ SDK, we're only able to open a library with the OpenNthLibrary function from the SwatchLibrariesSuite.

    It would be nice, similar to ExtendScript, to be able to load an .ase from a filepath and open the panel.

  7. 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.

  8. Extension drop down list Not completely visible at the bottom of the extension

    We have verified 2019 version of adobe illustrator in both Windows and Mac operating systems. drop downs developed in the extensions which are at the bottom of the extensions are hiding inside the extensions and complete data not visible. 2018 version of adobe illustrator is working fine but problem with 2019 version

  10. 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.

  11. Concerns about the future of CEP and UXP

    I've been reading through the new information about UXP and the announcement that it will be replacing CEP.

    If this happens it will likely mean the end of our current CEP extension, since the support provided in UXP does not cover our use case. To be specific we have problems with the following areas:

    1) Most critical UXP is "not a browser" and as such will only support a subset of HTML. Our extension relies on being able to run another web application within the browser control supplied by CEP, in an iframe window. While there is currently no list…

  13. Executing Extendscript/Javascript from the C++ API

    As far as I know there is no possible way to execute an Extendscript via the C++ API.
    In InDesign we can do so by providing the script as a string and fetching simple output results.

    Our customers can customize our Plugins by providing their own script in our custom scripting language. Unfortunately our language does not cover all use cases and needs to be constantly expanded. With support for Extendscript/Javascript execution from the C++ API we could circumvent the problem and give the users a lot of flexibility and power.

  14. Add 'Convert to Shape' to the menu command notifier list

    Please add the menu option: Object->Shape->Convert to Shape to the menu command notifiers list. (I've noticed other menu commands that also need to be added, but I only care about this one).

    I'm using Illustrator CC v.23.0.3 on Windows 10 Pro 64-bit.

  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.

  17. [BUG] Error during evaluation of conditional (ternary) operator

    The script in the Illustrator produces an error during evaluation of a conditional expression that includes a nested conditional expression without parenthesis.

    This breaks JavaScript optimization tools e.g. Google Closure Compiler.

    Scenario:
    alert(true ? true ? 1 : 2 : 3);

    Expected:
    Standard dialog with message: "1".

    Actual:
    Dialog with message "Error 25: Expected: :."

    Workaround:
    alert(true ? (true ? 1 : 2) : 3);

    System info:
    Illustrator Version: 23.0.1
    OS: OS X
    Version: 10.14
    System Architecture: x64

  18. CC2019 CoordinatePrecision2 in Preferences

    When doing operations on small vector objects I found that the precision was weird.

    After checking the Preferences files I found that the key
    plugin/SVGFormat/CoordinatePrecision was set to 3 (like in CC2018 were it works fine)

    But also found a new key:
    plugin/SVGFormat/CoordinatePrecision2 set to 1!

    After closing Illustrator and updating that value to 3 it works again.

    I didn't see any mention of that change in any docs.

    Is "CoordinatePrecision2" the new value from CC2019? and "CoordinatePrecision" deprecated?

    Thanks!
