If I have a script inside Illustrator's File/Script menu I would like to run from a script outside Illustrator.
The only code I found that might be related is:
app.executeMenuCommand("script name here?");
You can use the execute method under the File object, Not executeMenuCommand.
var f = new File("YOUR SCRIPT FILE PATH HERE");
Thx, I also think I found what I want using VBscript:
This doesn't work properly if the default application that the script is set to open in is anything but Illustrator (or whatever other Adobe app). I have my .jsx scripts set to open in Visual Studio Code by default when I click on them, which means doing
will just do exactly that and not actually run the script, instead of executing them in Illustrator like desired.
I can't seem to find a way to force them to execute in Illustrator all the time.
