@steveb72579112 there is link to script: https://pastebin.com/kwL5sQYk, check it and let me know if everything works properly.

Every sizes are set up as 10%, if it isn't problem for you (or you can tell me when over quantity of artboards you use 10%, so I could change it)

Before you start script, please open empty document.

Hi Lukasz

Thank you. I have taken the text file and renamed .jsx and installed in Illustratot. I have created .csv from my docs. But it comes up with errors. I have attached two .csv's One with headers and one without to show you what I have to see were I am going wrong.

Hi Lukasz

Those two were the type of .csv I will import. This is for Silicone Edge Graphics for the exhibition industry. We have clients who will order lots of graphics of different quantities and sizes. We first have to make allowances for the tension in the frames. I have attached an image to show you what it's used for.

Hi Lucasz

Can't seem to get this one working, the first one went into scripts fine. But can't see the new one in scripts and if I select other scripts these are greyed out. see the attached. Your first one opened in the past bin but the later opens in browser. I copied it and pasted in text editer and saved then renamed.

Hi Lucasz

Your video looks exciting. But not working for me. I have downloaded the file. I create a page in illustrator and drag and dropt the script on the artboad but it just pastes the text. See attached. Any ideas?

 

Regards Steve

Perhaps we can email to discuss my idea - steve@colourgraphics.com
