  1. Woohoo…another one really great Satori bro😁. Can you please exactly tell me where the scripts can be used?
    I would really love to use them in Future.πŸ‘


  2. Thanks for this video Sir Tom. I have never used scripts in illustrator before, but after seeing this I will check it out more. As always, have a great day.

  3. Would it be difficult? if I try to learn JAVA to code by myself? Can someone share an opinion with me? I know the fact that, nothing is hard if I intend to do. But just want to know from your experience. Thank you.


  5. I have trouble with nearly all scripts I've downloaded giving error messages. Some like CharSizeChangeFromFirst2LastInProportion open the windows properly but nothing happens. But some work if I click and object and then the script file directly without using File>Scrips. Is there some software that interferes with scripts?
