That's interesting, the doc is using a bridgeTalk but you should be able to call the function directly. Or this is either related to Illustrator or CS3- versions. I did use a few ScriptUI/SWF projects with ExternalInterface but never needed to use a bridgeTalk. Anyway I am very fond of theses technologies
Can I recommend a slight revision to this?
Enable Up and Down arrow keys when caret is in the Scale text field, which would increase or decrease the Scale value by 1. Also, Shift+Up and Shift+Down as well (which would bump the percent by 10% of course).
Yes, if its possible to implement Mathias suggestion, this will be great. Meanwhile the closest alternative is to press and hold with the mouse the left or right buttons of the scroll bar. However I noticed that doing so with the panel will change the value but not give a real time feedback of the change and will update the screen redraw after releasing the mouse while ith the original non-modal window it does update in real time feedback but it flickers.
Nevertheless, great job guys, you rock! I find this script as a better alternative to a assign a precise stroke weight even when using a single path. The predefined increments available in the Illustrator's Stroke panel are not very practical for me. I often need fine tuning of strokes in the range of 0.25 to 3 points and I end up spending a lot of time typing trial and error values in that range to get precisely the desired weight. Your script makes this much easier and interactively.
Thank you so much for replying so fast!
Yes, I restarted illustrator, and since it didn’t work I restarted my computer. But again… where should I see this feature now? On the stroke panel, or the transform, or somewhere else?
@ Danitria Haha, no problem! Happy stroke time.
@CarlosCanto Well, I don't know what it is, but these forums started loading INCREDIBLY slow for me, some months ago, so I stopped using them out of frustration. I'm only here now because I'm on the phone with a bank rep, on hold, and have nothing else to do, hehe.
Anything I do in these forums, every click, takes minutes. If that wasn't the case I'd continue to haunt these forums like I used to.
