Hello everyone, 

 

I´ll try to open a dxf-file from a specific folder (dxf_pfad: described in the global variables) with a specific name (alte_bezeichnung: also described as a global variable) with some standard import options. 

I worked with this solved code from the past: Solved: Open DXF file in Illustrator without dialog box - Adobe Support Community - 10324250 but I end up with an ERROR 8700. 

Below you can find my code. Hopefully someone from you can help me. 

 

Thanks in advance. 😃

Greetings

function openDXF(){
	var dxf = dxf_pfad + alte_Bezeichnung + '.dxf';	
	app.userInteractionLevel = UserInteractionLevel.DONTDISPLAYALERTS;
	var options = getOptions();
	var dxf_file = app.open(File(dxf), DocumentColorSpace.CMYK);
	app.userInteractionLevel = UserInteractionLevel.DISPLAYALERTS;
};
function getOptions() {
		var importOptions = app.preferences.AutoCADFileOptions;
		importOptions.centerArtwork = true;
		optRef.selectedLayoutName="Model";
		importOptions.globalScaleOption = AutoCADGlobalScaleOption.FitArtBoard;
		return importOptions;
};

Hello, this one can be clarified as solved. Took me one and half day to solve it and it was so simple...I thought the error could be somewhere else and deleted the displayalert-coding to see if there is something wrong with the dxf. Et voilá - it works now... function openDXF(){ var dxf = dxf_pfad + alte_Bezeichnung + '.dxf'; var options = getOptions(); var dxf_file = app.open(File(dxf), DocumentColorSpace.CMYK); }; function getOptions() { var importOptions = app.preferences.AutoCADFileOpti...
