A user requested a script to create grommet/eyelet marks in Illustrator for banner work. I've added the result to my website scripts collection. Free to download. All feedback is welcome. Thanks.

Thank you, William.

 

I can imagine that the script may have to be modified a bit if one is going to use it with an international non-English version of Illustrator.

 

I tried it with the latest (German) Illustrator version on Mac OS 10.14.6 and just got the following message:

 

w_c_grommet_marks_001.png

 

This often happens when there are some swatch name conflicts, but there may be other reasons as well. I cannot quickly check it due to the binary form.

 

Just a hint.

Thanks for the feedback. Yep difficult to test international, so great that you respond. Problem was pretty easy. Getting 'None' swatch by name, which of course can vary by language. None swatch is zero index so changed to get it by index instead. I think that will solve the error. Let me know. Again, thank you for the feedback. An updated script is posted.

Hereby confirmed that it now works properly and as expected. Thank you for the quick fix.

 

Just saw that you've got a collection of other scripts for InDesign and Photoshop.

 

If you don't mind, I can soon test them with the German application versions and report possible (language) conflicts.
