Hi there,

 

As you can see I installed the scripts on:

 

K:\PROGRAMS\ADOBE\Adobe Illustrator 2021\Presets\en_GB\Scripts

 

Despite doing so they won't show up in my dropdown menu in Ai

 

Any thoughts? Im using last CC version.

  1. Was this folder defined by you or did it already exist?
  2. Where is your Illustrator installed?

I changed the folder where my CC apps are stored directly from CC thus reinstalling all my apps on one of my drives.

The folder was then created by adobe itself.

Hmmh?

You didn't show us the extension of these files.

 

Are these files *.js or *.jsx files?

I wonder:

Why are the files displayed as "Adobe After Effects ExtendScript" - and not as "Adobe JavaScript file"?

Weird, isn't it? Since actually default scripts share the same extension as the ones I downloaded.

Hi Tony, can you remove one or more of the 4 default scripts from the Scripts folder, to see if they disappear from the Scripts Menu?
