Script warning

Jul 30, 2012 3:13 AM

Tags: #script #warning



I've made a script that opens a panel at Illustrator startup.

From that panel I can execute other jsx scripts by clicking on buttons, but there's a warning message that popups everytime I click a button...

You are about to run a script in Adobe Illustrator CS5. You should only run scripts from trusted sources. Do you want to run the script?


Is it possible to avoid that warning ??

I've tried with

app.userInteractionLevel = UserInteractionLevel.DONTDISPLAYALERTS;

but it doesn't work


Thanks for your help

    You are using File.execute() to run your scripts, right?

    The Toolkit treats the user's Documents/Adobe Scripts folder, however, as a trusted location; when you double-click a JSX file in that folder, the Toolkit does not display the security alert.

    ----From JavaScript Tools Guide

    So you need to put your scripts into Documents/Adobe Scripts folder to aviod that warning.


    But you can use other way to run script: $.evalFile(), maybe should along with BridgeTalk as you are using a "palette" type panel.
