    Illustrator CC SDK: Can't compile samples

    Techie_Dave Level 1

      Hello all,

      I'm new to writing plugins and I'm trying to learn the ropes via the samples in the Illustrator SDK 2015.3. My development environment is on a Mac using Xcode 8.0.


      When I open one of the sample projects (EmptyPanel for instance) and try to build the plugin I get a series of errors about unknown type names (SInt16, OSType, UInt16, Point, Rect, etc.). It looks like these types should be defined in MacTypes.h.

      I can build and run the example "Creating a plug-in in Mac OS" from the "Getting Started" document:

      Has anyone else found and solved this problem? It must be a build setting or something that I'm missing?
