We are currently developing the plug-in of Adobe Illustrator CS5.
I have a question on how to support multiple languages by that plug-in.
I want to specify a path according to a language of Ai and then install the swatch file when installing the plug-in(Extension) by Extension Manager.
However, the swatch file cannot be placed in a desired path.
The folder of swatch libraries to which Ai refers difffers from language to language, so I want to place the swatch file only in an appropriate path according to a language of Ai...
Japanese version of Ai : [Ai installation path]/Presets/ja_JP/スウォッチ
English version of Ai : [Ai installation path]/Presets/en_US/swatches
*In the case that the plug-in is installed into Japanese version of Ai, the expected result is that the swatch file is placed only in "[Ai installation path]/Presets/ja_JP/スウォッチ.
As a way to place the swatch file according to a language of Ai, I described the following contents in MXI file(project.mxi) and then installed the plug-in.
URL that I referenced : http://help.adobe.com/en_US/extensionmanager/cs/using/packaging_extens ion.pdf
--The contents of MXI file--
<macromedia-extension name="Extension Name"
name_resid="name_ID" version="1.0.0" ismultilingual="true" >
<file source="en_US/test.ai" destination="$presets/en_US/swatches"/>
<file source="ja_JP/test.ai" destination="$presets/ja_JP/スウォッチ"/>
<file source="it_IT/test.ai" destination="$presets/it_IT/swatches"/>
When I installed the plug-in by the installer created by using the MXI file above, the swatch file(test.ai) was placed not in "$presets/ja_JP/スウォッチ" but in "$presets/en_US/swatches".
Is there anything wrong with the MXI file above?
Also, is there any way to place the swatch file in a desired path according to a language of Ai other than this way.
If someone knows it, please let me know.
