Hi everyone,

 

I'm fairly new to ExtendScript and was curious as to whether it is possible to insert a line into Illustrator using the Line Segment tool and not as a PathItem?

I couldn't find anything in the documentation nor any similar queries on whether this could be done.

Please help!

Thank you.

can you show what you're trying to draw? and explain why a pathItem is not an option?

No, it's not possible to use the Line Segment tool through ExtendScript.

Hi Carlos, 

 

You're right. PathItem achieves what I need. Just needed to draw a line.

 

Thanks @CarlosCanto  and @femkeblanco !

 

Regards,

John Joy
