All I can find is the download page with 2017 and prior. I have the one for 2020 but I have no idea where I found it before. The lastest Illustrator broke my extension and I need to know what changed.

 

Why do adobe site structure make no sense and why is so much hidden?

 

anyway, does anyone know if there is an update Javascript reference?

Yes, correct, there is a property in JS by which you can check

 

app.activeDocument.scaleFactor

For more description: please see similar thread

I hope this helps you.

Hi,

Please check similar thread, this is the latest one - which have link to the latest Illustrator Guide

https://community.adobe.com/t5/illustrator/illustratorsaveoptions-compatibility-javascript-reference...

 

Download Link from Adobe, you can have latest information from this link

https://console.adobe.io/downloads

 

For more information, Adobe releases CEP 10, it may possible something is not working because of that.

 

Here is the link 

https://community.adobe.com/t5/exchange/cep-10-coming-to-prereleases/td-p/11310041?page=1

 

But it will be difficulut to tell therfore could you please tell us what exactly broke in the extension.?

Best regards

thank you for you detailed reply

 

I have a scaling extension and the new Large Canvas option makes all my numbers incorrect by a decimal space. Example, if I type in 1 inch, I get 10 inches instead. So I need a way to find out when a document is in this mode to get the correct dimensions. Assuming that this is exposed to JS ofcourse, Im hoping it is.

hi, sorry to bug. i fixed my extension with your help, but i still don't understand where to find references for this properties. i followed all kinds of links, downloaded the scripting guide for 2020, but it doesn't tell me anything about this new property for example. how am i supposed to know?

 

like for example. are the new Cap height and x height features exposed to javascript?
