Thanks for sharing!
I've tried the link and it keeps coming back with a cannot find report. Seems that the "p" is getting left off the .zip extension in the link. Can you post the URL directly. Thanks

?? That's the second time this month it happens to me. I'm beginning to seriously doubt my keyboard-a-bilities. Surely it's not Jive, jivving things up ...?

Thanks Again, Jongware
Works fine in AICS6 Mac OSX 10.8.2
Thanks a lot jongware.
Thank you so much Jongware!!!
Thank you very much for this script:)
I would like to ask if it is possible to add extended roman characters for Spanish or Turkish in your script?
If you don't have a time would you please show couple of examples to add your script for extended characters?
As I understand we should add Hershey C-Style coordinates arrays in your script like;
Array( 23,24, // Ascii 126 Array( 3, 6, 3, 8, 4,11, 6,12, 8,12,10,11,14, 8,16, 7,18, 7,20, 8,21,10,-1,-1, 3, 8, 4,10, 6,11, 8,11,10,10,14, 7,16, 6,18, 6,20, 7,21,10,21,12 ) )
But how to find those arrays in c-style, I have downloaded "The full Hershey set for Roman Characters" but could not understand it ;

Thank you and
It's been a while, I cannot recall if I wrote a program to convert the original data format to 'regular' coordinates, or just used one of the C style definitions that float around the web. The format is not extremely difficult to parse, but yes: it takes some tinkering. You can find samples for decoding at http://paulbourke.net/dataformats/hershey/
Thank you so much for posting this! This will save me a great deal of time with the current project I'm working on. Much appreciated!
Download link seems to be broken
Seems like a rascal stole a "p".
Copy the link in the initial post and add a "p" at the end of the line. Then the download link should work.
Or use this one:
is the layer locked?
No. I even tried a new layer and received the same message.
I just tried and hey, even 8 years after writing it and ~6 versions of Illustrator later ...
This strongly suggests the problem lies at your end.
Remember, we are not able to look over your shoulder! There must be something in your document, setup, preferences, or computer that prohibits the script from running normally. As @Ray says above, the only way I can get that error message if I deliberately lock the current working layer.

FWIW, I bumped into the same problem. The trouble seems to be a glitch in how the the script and the current version of AI get along. It looks like the script always places its output in the topmost layer, regardless of which layer is the "currently active" layer, If the topmost layer is not visible, the error you reported happens.
Hope this helps.
