Here is a script I use to set my preference for appearance of black. It runs from the startup.

#targetengine "session"

app.scriptPreferences.version = 5.0;

main();

function main(){

    var myEventListener = app.addEventListener("afterOpen", opaqueBlack, false);

   

}

///////////////////////////////////////////////

function opaqueBlack(myEvent){

    //var myDocument = myEvent.parent;

    var myDocument=app.documents[0];

myDocument.documentPreferences.overprintBlack= false;

    

}

Hi

Thanks for your code.

But I like code below model.

myDocument.viewPreferences.horizontalMeasurementUnits = MeasurementUnits.points;

myDocument.viewPreferences.verticalMeasurementUnits = MeasurementUnits.points;

Thanks

Hi Ashram,

Try this.

app.autoCorrectPreferences.autoCorrect = true;

app.activeDocument.gridPreferences.baselineColor = [20,20,20];

Regards,
