    Is there a debugger?

    david94133 Level 1

      Hello:

       

      I used to use the ESTK (years ago), but with CC 2018 it doesn't seem to work anymore. When I try and execute a script it tries to run the CS4 version. "Target Illustrator CS4 is not running". The first line of the script is "#target illustrator".

       

      This is for a mac.

       

      Is there any other way to debug javascript? I'd like breakpoints, stepping, etc.

       

      I have an AppleScript debugger, but do not really care for AppleScript and would prefer javascript.

       

      Thanks.

          type the following into ESTK and click run:

           

          alert(app.version);

           

          make sure that you have the correct version of illustrator selected in the dropdown menu at the top of the ESTK window.

           

          I use illlustrator CC2014, so my version is 18.1.1.

           

          when you have your proper version number, amend your target statement to include the first portion of your version number. For example:

           

          #target illustrator-18
