I'm attempting to write an Illustrator script that will get the length of a text phrase... Then based on the string length, set the warp arc bend, horizontal distortion, vertical distortion to a new value...

Here is my fake pseudo code:

if (textlength = 5)
warp_bend = 60%
warp_horizontal = 10%
warp_vertical = 25%

I have looked through the Javascript scripting 2017 guide, and I do not see any variables for these warp values. Am I missing something, or is this not possible?

Any help is much appreciated.



No you can not do this via the javascript API.

  • Do you happen to know if this is something could be done using the SDK or any other 3rd party plugin? – Wyatt Jackson Jul 14 '18 at 15:04
  • @WyattJackson you can do it in the C++ SDK if you can afford to learn how to use it. On the other hand you can just add spaces to a set wrap – joojaa Jul 14 '18 at 16:09
