INSTRUCTIONS

DESCRIPTION

Ai-Sessions is a JavaScript for Adobe Illustrator that will save the file paths of all open Illustrator files in ~/ai-sessions/ai-YYYY-MM-DD-r[0-9].json so you can easily re-open open documents in your "work session". The file paths are saved in a JSON object.

SETUP

  1. Place the Ai_Sessions.jsx script in Applications > Adobe Illustrator > Presets > en_US > Scripts
  2. Restart Adobe Illustrator to activate the scripts
  3. The script will be available under menu File > Scripts > Ai_Sessions
  4. Select File > Scripts > Ai_Sessions
  5. A new dialog will open with a list of all saved sessions (if you have any) and three buttons: Close, Open, Save. Select a saved session from the list, or double-click the name of the session to open it. Or, click "Save" to save the current session.
  6. Sessions are saved in ~/ai-sessions/ai-YYYY-MM-DD-r[0-9].json
  7. Errors are saved in ~/ai-sessions/ai-log-YYYY-MM-DD-r[0-9].txt
