Hi, 

 

I made 2 scripts that used to work great, but no longer are. Any advice?

 

This is what I've tried thus far to no avail:

  • Tried in Ai 2021 and 2022
  • checked the file sharing permissions and made them read and write accessible to me and other people.
  • copied them to my desktop to see if those would work
  • restarted my computer

 

Script 1 takes a csv file with RGB info and loads the colors as swatches. When it works, it tells me to select a CSV file before creating the swatches.

Script 2 takes swatches and make them into little rectangle with the color name on it and the RGB values.

Here are the scripts... and I've attached a representative csv file. 

 

Script 1 (pasted from jsx file):

#target illustrator

function main() {
if (isOSX()) {
var csvFile = File.openDialog('Select a CSV File', function(f) {
return (f instanceof Folder) || f.name.match(/\.csv$/i);
});
} else {
var csvFile = File.openDialog('Select a CSV File', 'comma-separated-values(*.csv):*.csv;');
}
if (csvFile != null) {
fileArray = readInCSV(csvFile);
var columns = fileArray[0].length;
//alert('CSV file has ' + columns + ' columns…');
var rows = fileArray.length;
//alert('CSV file has ' + rows + ' rows…');
if (columns == 4 && rows > 0) {
exchangeSwatches(csvFile);
} else {
var mess = 'Incorrect CSV File?';
isOSX ? saySomething(mess) : alert(mess);
}
} else {
var mess = 'Ooops!!!';
isOSX ? saySomething(mess) : alert(mess);
}
}
main();

function exchangeSwatches(csvFile) {
// var docRef = app.documents.add();
var docRef = app.activeDocument;
var swatchgroup = docRef.swatchGroups.add();
swatchgroup.name = csvFile.name;
with(docRef) {
/* for (var i = swatches.length-1; i >= 0; i--) {
swatches[i].remove();
} */
for (var a = 0; a < fileArray.length; a++) {
var n = fileArray[a][0]; // First Column is name
if (n == 'Cyan' || n == 'Magenta' || n == 'Yellow' || n == 'Black') {
n = n + '-???'; // Reserved swatch name;
}
r = parseFloat(fileArray[a][1]); // Second Column is Red
g = parseFloat(fileArray[a][2]); // Third Column is Green
b = parseFloat(fileArray[a][3]); // Forth Column is Bloo
if (r >= 0 && r <= 255 && g >= 0 && g <= 255 && b >= 0 && b <= 255) {
var color = new RGBColor;
color.red = r;
color.green = g;
color.blue = b;
var swatch = swatches.add();
swatch.name = n;
swatch.color = color;
swatchgroup.addSwatch(swatch);
} else {
var mess = 'Color values are out of range?';
isOSX ? saySomething(mess) : alert(mess);
}
}
}
}

function readInCSV(fileObj) {
var fileArray = new Array();
fileObj.open('r');
fileObj.seek(0, 0);
while (!fileObj.eof) {
var thisLine = fileObj.readln();
var csvArray = thisLine.split(',');
fileArray.push(csvArray);
}
fileObj.close();
return fileArray;
}

function saySomething(stringObj) {
var speakThis = 'I say, "' + stringObj + '"';
alert(speakThis);
}

function isOSX() {
return $.os.match(/Macintosh/i);
}

 

And script 2 (also pasted from JSX file):

/////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
// Render Swatch Legend v1.4.4 -- CC
//>=--------------------------------------
//
// This script will generate a legend of rectangles for every swatch in the main swatches palette.
// You can configure spacing and value display by configuring the variables at the top
// of the script.
// update: v1.1 now tests color brightness and renders a white label if the color is dark.
// update: v1.2 uses adobe colour converter, rather than rgb colour conversion for a closer match.
// update: v1.3 adds multiple colour space values based on array printColors.
// update: v1.4.1 Updated by CarlCanto > https://community.adobe.com/t5/illustrator-discussions/illustrator-javascript-render-swatch-legend-l...
// update: v1.4.2 Only on selected Rombout Versluijs
// update: v1.4.3 Added HEX colors Rombout Versluijs
// update: v1.4.4 Added Split by Color Component Rombout Versluijs

Hi @Elizabeth27148842zcxt 
the os check does not return true or false for me. I replaced this line
return $.os.match(/Macintosh/i); in function isOSX
with

var pattern = new RegExp("Macintosh", i);
return pattern.test($.os);
And the script is now asking for the CSV file

I don't see any problem running a CSV script. Mac OS + Illustrator CC 2020. Try swatch_group_from_csv.jsx, only the first CSV line should be the table header.
