hey you can make a text box / filld
that automatically update the date and time for example every time you save
so you can see in print what time the file is updating
second best is one that just updates even when loading the file
If you want to manage event-triggered action, you need to make a plugin and CEP extensions.
However, It is possible to create a script that saves or prints after creating a time stamp.
Her yo can find a script to do that
However, for the more automated and unattended way I have used for very long years, a plugin called Tag72a which works so well, just save your file, and its done, not too expensive.
Here you can find it
do you have a script to change the date formatting from Mon-Day-Year to MM/DD/YY?
var date1 = "Mon-Day-Year"; var temp = date1.split("-"); date2 = temp + "/" + temp + "/" + temp; alert(date2);
Thanks, so I saved the file as "Tag72a_doc_changed.jsx" and put it into my scripts folder (/Applications/Adobe Illustrator 2023/Presets.localized/en_US/Scripts) and checked the box for "Run Userscripts" and restarted illustrator. When I open illustrator a prompt shows up that says "Day/Mon/Year" pops up but it doesn't reformat the date when I save or manually run the script. Any thoughts?
The above snippet is just a way to reformat the date. It was intended to be used with whatever script, if any, is being used to add a date. Are you using a script to add a date?
I am using the plugin Tag72a (https://rj-graffix.com/product/tag72a-plugin/) linked above which features the ability to automatically modify the outputs using a script. So i currently have the settings to output the date in the Mon-Day-Year format and want a script to change it to MM/DD/YY.
did you buy the Tag72a plugin?
If so, you can go to Window/Tag72a preferences and set the date and time as you want, I recomend you to read the documentation about how to use the plugin, can you upload screenshots of what are you trying to do?
I've already purchased the plugin and thoroughly read through the documentation. In the documentation, it states that in order to change the date format to any other date format than the two options in the plugin, one must run a "custom script". I know how to install and run scripts in Illustrator. I understand to get the script to work with the plugin, it must be saved with one of the titles in the documentation. I am only trying to get a script that will reformat the date from Mon-Day-Year to MM/DD/YY.
the fashionclassroom are no more accesible. need to find other alternative. or maybe someone can extract the content from there? appreciate your help guys.
