HI ,

 

I am trying to automate the printing of adobe illustrator document using specific printer settings.

I use python programing language to perform actions on GUI elements identified by 'Accessibility Inspector'.

 

Once i click on File menu, and click on 'Print...'

I am not able to access the element Ids for 'Setup or Page Setup' buttons. I am not able to get the UI elements using accessibility inspector.

 

Is there any solution for this? so that i can automate the process.

or use Javascript and access the API directly
