How can i add my image trace preset to the actions list 

I searched here and found old posts saying i have to edit the "vectoring presets" file https://community.adobe.com/t5/illustrator-discussions/actions-and-image-trace/td-p/8972067

Trouble is i cant find it 

I'm using cc2022

Is this still the only way to do this?

Can you run a script from your action?

You can save your settings there:

 

var traceobj = selection[0].trace();
var opt = traceobj.tracing.tracingOptions;
opt.cornerAngle = 90;
opt.fills = true;
opt.ignoreWhite = false;
opt.maxColors = 32;
opt.maxStrokeWeight = 0;
opt.minArea = 5;
opt.minStrokeLength = 3;
opt.outputToSwatches = true;
opt.palette = '';
opt.pathFitting = true;
opt.preprocessBlur = 0;
opt.strokes = false;
opt.tracingMode = TracingModeType.TRACINGMODECOLOR
traceobj.tracing.tracingOptions = opt;

 

if not I seem to remember this is doable through Bridge, search the forum I probably saw it here.
