Actions repeating with function key

Jan 24, 2013 6:15 AM

Tags: #illustrator #action #cs6

Illustrator CS6 (16.0.3) on Mac OS 10.6.8.

I've set up an action that will add crop marks to a selected object.  The action works great when clicking the play button on the panel, but when I assign a Function Key to the action, it runs the action twice (giving me 2 set of crop marks).  I've tried different Function Keys thinking it was a keyboard shortcut conflict, but that has made no difference.  Any ideas?  Thanks in advance.

    Adjust your key repeat. Most likely delay.

    Do you have any plug ins taht are nonstandard?

     

    What happens if you actions palette >>playback options >> Set pause to 1 sec? If this works you have to chaneg this back everytime you reboot Illustrator, has been an annoying problem for as long as I remember.

    I don't have a solution — just wanted to say that the exact same thing is happening to me. I'm surprised that more people haven't posted in this thread.

    It's a bug introduced in AI CS6. Easy to fix: Insert a STOP at the end of your Action.
