Are you a creative professional?

Do you use Adobe Illustrator CS2 and have some experience with scripting? Then this book is for you. Virtually every repetitive or time-consuming task that creative professionals have to do in the Adobe Creative Suite can be streamlined with the help of a script. This book describes how to use JavaScript to manipulate and extend Adobe Illustrator within Adobe Creative Suite 2, and provides reference information for the JavaScript objects, properties, and functions defined by Adobe's applications. Available in print for the first time, this scripting reference provides the information experienced JavaScript user needs to create custom scripts for the Illustrator, whether you're looking to capture and automate parts of the printing process; manipulate swatches to create new patterns, gradients and spot colors; or create a script that applies formatting to selected text or changes a selected path's shape. These are just a few examples of how you can use Illustrator CS2's built-in scripting capabilities to save you from hours of repetitive tasks.

2.0 out of 5 stars Same document available from Adobe for free 10 Jan 2007

This is almost exactly page for page what is in the PDF you can download for free from the Adobe site. It's quite technical and does not provide much leeway for the begining javascript user... But then again there is not a whole lot of other documentation for scripting in Illustrator, so it's at least as informative as anything else out here, however, it's still not worth the price when you can download it for free from Adobe.
