Hey guys,


I am having the following issue:

 

When linking a file via Illustrator -> File -> Place -> Open Cloud Document (it's a PSD)

 

And then executing an Illustrator JSX script on that file I would like to interact with the linked PSD file.

 

However, when monitoring the PlacedItem that represents this Placed/Embedded file I get the following:

PlacedItem.file // gives the string "There is no file associated with this item"

Is there a way to access a Placed/Embedded file from Creative Cloud via a JSX Illustrator script?
