Probably most long-time users of Illustrator and InDesign do know the incredibly useful and versatile dialog based scripts provided by Sergey Anosov.

 

Recently I had some time to test if his scripts are still compatible with the latest versions of Illustrator and InDesign (officially just up to CS6). Fortunately, as far as I can see, they do work properly in the CC 2020 versions (at least on Mac OS).

 

You can take a look at the script collection at:

 

https://sites.google.com/site/dtpscripting/home

 

As you may soon notice there is a downer that prevents you from downloading the script files. All download links (.zip files) are dead. What a bummer.

 

But there is some hope because the files are still there. One only has to find out the right URLs (which is rather easy as you can see below).

 

For example, take a look at the page with the Make Guides script for Illustrator:

 

https://sites.google.com/site/dtpscripting/illustrator-scripts/makeguidesai

 

The download link at the lower-left corner of the page is dead, but all you have to do is to copy the file name of the .zip file (in this case MakeGuidesAI_v_1-5-11.zip) and add it to the URL. That means the correct download link is:

 

https://sites.google.com/site/dtpscripting/illustrator-scripts/makeguidesai/MakeGuidesAI_v_1-5-11.zi...

 

This actually works with all dead links on the entire site.

 

Thanks for your great scripts, Sergey.

Just noticed that on each page there is a very small arrow at the lower-right corner. Clicking on that also starts the download. Sorry, I just overlooked it.

 

That is, my initial post could have been a bit shorter 🙂
