I have a script that exports layers in an ai file labeled with "#" at the beginning of the layer name as pngs. I have a folder containing multiple ai files I need to run this script on. I tired recording an action of me running the script on a file hoping to run the action as a batch on the aforementioned folder. For some reason the action will not run the script for me. Does anyone know how I can make this work? I am using CS5 on a Mac running OSX 10.9.5.
Hi Erin, post your script, someone could help you modify it to work on a folder
Thanks, CarlosCanto. I believe I figured it out. I needed to add the script to the action using "Insert Menu Item" in the Actions panel. I originally downloaded the script at the following link, if anyone wants to check it out. It's been very useful to me. http://www.arcticmill.com/2012/08/export-layers-as-png-files-from-illustrator-in-multiple- resolutions.html
I will have to tell you that the path to the script will not survive a restart of AI. It has been this way for 8+ versions. The only way is to save a copy of the Action set and reload it at restart.
