Hi All,

     C:/ start illustrator.exe Script.jsx


its working fine but i want to do the same thing in MAC, if you have any idea about it please help me.


i am working on an Application in that I am using CS6 SDK to add some functionality in my Adobe Illustrator, but didnt find any method to execute JSX files directoly from VC++/CS6 SDK.


Please help me if you have any suggetion for me.

    There are following two ways to execute the script on Mac from terminal:


    01) The way it works on Win, same way it works even on Mac. But make sure that you have mentioned following statement at start of your Java Script:


              #target "Illustrator-16"


    02) Or if you do not want to do as mentioned above, you may provide command in terminal as follows:


             Open -a <full path of application> <Java Script Source"


    Hope this information helps.

    Doesn't he explicitly explain in his very first question how he does that? "... by using following cmmand:"?


    Did it not work for you?
