Version 2.8.052
From:  Jürg Lehni

Here a short note to inform you that the new version 2.8.052 was just uploaded. The previously released 2.8.050 introduced a few regressions due to the many under the hood changes, which were quickly identified and fixed. There are not enough changes for a real change-log, but below a list of what was fixed.

If you encountered problems with the previous release, please test again with this one first before reporting.

  • Fixed a bug in document.getItems(attributes) that prevented attributes.type from being recognised correctly.
  • Fixed UI layout issues with older scripts that directly work with the ADM package, where certain items would appear to have their bounding rectangles set incorrectly.
  • Fixed an error in the undo history tracking code that prevented item deletion from being detected in some situations and therefore leading to item.isValid() falsely returning true for such items.
  • Got version for Mac CS to compile correctly again.
  • Fixed a row of issues in the code that generates the Reference templates and improved documentation for some of the new features.

Installed newest version as instructed (had been using an older version successfully for some time), but upon starting Illustrator CS3 (in windows XP) multiple instances of the console appear, as do multiple instances of the pencil tool icon in the tool palette, and Scriptographer entries under the Window tab. Tested the scripts and they work fine, but the twenty or more pencils in tool palette and entries in window tab make it highly impractical.
I have removed it and await your guidance.

I am not able to reproduce this on CS3 / Windows, so it would be good if you could help out with more information: Could you shoot a screenshot of the problem happening, and send it along with all the log files found in the Scriptographer\Logs directory after execution to team (at) I shall then look into it and see what could cause this odd issue.

Jakob, thanks for reporting the issue. As for Chris, could you please follow the steps outlined above to send us more information that can gives hints at how to fix this problem? As we cannot reproduce it locally, there is nothing we can do otherwise. Please also report the version of the Java Runtime Environment that you installed.

I too am having multiple instances of scriptographer appearing in the window palette. I've attached a screenshot, for you to see. I'm using Illustrator CS4 on Windows XP, Java RE ver 6 is installed.

I still have no clue what is causing this. If anybody who experiences this is up for sharing his screen with me so I could look into this more that would be great. For example through Skype. If you are up for it, please send an email to team (at) Thanks!

I just updated the Windows versions of 2.8.055 to solve another issue, and have a suspicion this could be linked to it. Could please download again and try first?
