Hi Team,

 

As of now , Illustrator process has been done with open adobe UI. But we want to implement without abobe UI. Our requirement like "text-change,add text, add image..etc" should be run in the background process without UI.

 

Regards

Stella

Hi,

Could you please explain in detail, what do you mean by Adobe UI here. Is it some panel designed by you or youre team or it is some sort of inbuilt UI in Adobe?

 

You can create CEP invisible panel which will run in the background.  And as mentioned in the documentation it is supported by Illustrator. Here is the more description

Invisible CEP Panels

As mentioned by @CarlosCanto , you can't run any script without opening an illustrator, but you can open the illustrator from apple script and exceute your code, but it is still not in the background.

Also, are you looking to do this on a server?

Or automatically on work queued?

that's not possible, an instance of illustrator must be open. Not only that, but Illustrator must open a document to do anything with it. Illustrator does not run in the background.
