We are working on a plug-in that was working fine with Adobe Illustrator 2021 25.0 and 25.0.1 but for the later version of Illustrator 2021 and recently released 2022 , it is not loading the plugin anymore on macOS. On windows, 2021 plug-in was also working fine.
Could you please suggest if there is any new requirement or change required to compile a plugin for these new version (25.1) of Illustartor 2021 and Illustrator 2022?
I know nothing about plug-in development but isn't there a specific portal/site for developers to get the latest info, aside from just https://helpx.adobe.com/illustrator/plug-ins.html, that you should already know about and have access to?
It could be that macOS users need to use your plugin in Rosetta mode.
There was a C++ update here, but I don't think that's the issue with 2022: https://medium.com/adobetech/an-illustrator-25-1-update-for-plugin-developers-31aa4baaeecc?source=fr...
There was also an issue with AiHostAdapter not being signed, and I had to upload it here: https://github.com/Adobe-CEP/CEP-Resources/tree/master/CEP_11.x/AIHostAdapter
Thanks for replying.
Our plugin is based on C++ components. I will try the solutions mentioned in the links. If you have any other information, then please share
I am trying generating pipl files as mentioned in your links. Meanwhile I checked for previous version of Illustrator plugins which we built, we never used/generated any pipl files.
So can there be another reason for this issue ?
There was a change in how those files were generated...
Anyhow, sure, there could be other reasons.
If you use the AIHostAdapter, that needs to be updated: https://github.com/Adobe-CEP/CEP-Resources/tree/master/CEP_11.x/AIHostAdapter
If you use BridgeTalk, there might be some issues... Or the XMP Script library is broken in Illustrator 25 but working in Illustrator 26.
Did you try Illustrator 26? Does it have the same issues?
Do you Notarize it (for Catalina, Big Sur or later)? Did you build for Intel, ARM or both?
yes we do notarise the plugin
Does this solution not work for notarised plugins?
