Hi Community, sorry for bothering again,

 

can anyone tell me if is possible tu run recorded actions in AI from a script? Like "Execute Action EREASE SWATCHES UNUSED" in the image attach? I mean I know I can do it from a script, but there are already recorded actions from somebody here and it will be hard to adapt by code so I was wondering if possible to execute actions / call actions by coding? Thanks!

If an action already exists in Adobe Illustrator: app.doScript("Simplify (selection)", "Default Actions");
Available in Adobe Illustrator CS6+.
