Illustrator Script to Copy Metadata from Linked Files

Copy link to clipboard

Copied

Hi All, 

A while ago, with help from the community, I was able to create a couple of scripts to add keywords to past and current Photoshop files to make a searchable DAM. We have now added Illustrator to our workflow and we need to figure out how to add keywords to the Illustrator files as well. 

 

A big issue is that are linking Photoshop files with metadata (including keywords) and we want to copy the linked file's metadata and paste it into the Illustrator document's XMP metadata. In the Links panel, there is a way to view the Linked File Info, and then I manually copy and paste each field into the Illustrator document File Info page. Is there a way to script this? 

 

Let me know if I can clear anything up!

 

Thanks so much!
