Useful information and links

This forum is a place for getting help and sharing information about scripting in Adobe Illustrator.

 

Please keep in mind that nobody is here to develop scripts for you or to work for free.

 

Please avoid questions like: "I want to develop this workflow via script. How could I do this?"

Instead, try to create your scripts, share your experiences and then ask for help regarding your scripts.

 

Useful documentation

 

Adobe offers good documentation to help users develop scripts for Adobe Illustrator. Many of the questions can be answered by simply looking inside the following manuals:

 

Adobe Illustrator Scripting guides: http://www.adobe.com/devnet/illustrator/scripting.html

 

JavaScript Tools Guide: http://www.adobe.com/devnet/scripting/estk.html

This guide explains how to work with Files and Folders, metadata, integrating XML, interapplication communication via script and other subjects. Note: If you have Extended Script Toolkit Installed on your machine, look in the folder where this application is installed. The JavaScript Tools Guide.pdf is already there (inside a subfolder called SDK).
