Under Windows 7.
For Photoshop, I have used a script by Bramus to extract text from layers (http://www.bram.us/2008/10/30/ps_bramustextconvert-psd2txt-and-txt2psd-for-the-masses/).
Is there such a thing as a script for Illustrator that would do the same. I have a lot of Illy files that I need to get the text out from and donig it manually or saving the file as text is lob.
File --> Export --> TXT
or in Acrobat from PDF
File --> Export --> Text/Rich Text/Word
