Hi All,

Is there any way to access the properties of effects applied via Effect->Stylize?

Let's say If I added a path item and apply drop shadow to it via Effect->Stylize->DropShadow.Will it be possible to get the Mode, X Offset, Y Offset etc. properties value using scripting?

Thanks for any help

about the only option is to manually create a Graphic Style.

Then you can apply this via a script.

var doc = app.activeDocument;

var sel = doc.selection[0];

var style = doc.graphicStyles.getByName('DS');

style.applyTo(sel);
