Help with Scripts

Hello!

Two questions:

1. I discovered the wonderful scripts by John Wundes https://github.com/johnwun/js4ai . I installed the whole thing in "C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Illustrator 2023\Scripting\", but everytime I go to "File|Scripts|Other Script..." it opens  "This PC", so I have to navigate to the "Scripting" folder everytime. Is there any way to set a default "scripts" folder?

 

2. When I run the "TextTweaker" script to randomize the text baseline, I get an error:

2023-03-15 15_39_16-ELAGuy.ai_ @ 200 % (CMYK_Preview).png

As per the instructions, I select some text, do "File|Scripts|Other Script...", navigate to the script, Open and answer the questions:

 

2023-03-15 15_42_00-ELAGuy.ai_ @ 200 % (CMYK_Preview).png2023-03-15 15_42_10-ELAGuy.ai_ @ 200 % (CMYK_Preview).png

The direct link to the script is HERE 

Thank you in advance!

 

Diego

"Is there any way to set a default "scripts" folder?"

There are several ways, but one is to put them here: C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Illustrator 2023\Presets\(your language)\Scripts\

you need to select one or more text frames, as if selecting with the Selection Tool (V), do not select some of the characters in a text frame.
