I am working on a plugin kind of application, in that i need to add a Menu Item in the File Menu of Adobe Illustrator.
I have done that task.
I am using Adobe Illustrator CS6 SDK for it. It is giving me a .AIP file as output and when i paste this file in Plugin folder of AI it works.
Now when i use this same file for MAC OS it doesn't work.
Can any one of you please tell me that how can i resolve this issue. Will i have to write the entire code again for MAC OS or i am doing some mistake while using this file.
I need a plugin that work in both MAC and MicroSoft Plateform.
Thanks & Regards
Plugins compiled using Visual Studio on Windows will not work on Mac. What you will have to do is to compile your plugin using Xcode 3.2.5 which will give you an .aip that will work on mac. You will not need to re-write your code however you may find if you have used windows specific libraries that you need to re-write those sections.
To get started you should be able to see that all the samples provided with the SDK come with both a visual studio project and an xcode project and you should be able to use one of the xcode projects or the xcode template as the basis for your xcode project. If you compile one of the samples using both the Visual Studio and the Xcode projects you will see that they create two different aip files one under <sdk folder>/output/windows/... and <sdk folder>/output/mac/... you should find that each file works on the correct platfom.
I hope that helps,
Thanks and regards,
I will do the same.
What i want to do in this Plugin is that :
I want a custom Menu Item in File Menu of AdobeIlllustrator. (I have done it)
now in second step i want this button click to Execute a JSX Script file on the current open document.
i have written the code in that jsx file as per my requirement.
but i am not able to Execute that script on my documet by using Adobe Illustrator SDK CS6, thats why i am using CMD(Command Prompt) in Ms Window and planning to do the same thing in MAC by using TERMINAL.
Is there any way with that i can do this directly from my VC++/XCODE coding with out using TERMINAL or CMD .
I want to execute that Script without using any third party tool as i mentioned above
