Script Bay: Script Panel Extension

Weekly Vector Inspiration #119

I use a bunch of different scripts in Illustrator, but sometimes it’s a little cumbersome to trigger one. Thankfully there is a pretty cool free extension called Script Bay that makes using scripts a lot easier! I tweeted about this extension from a post by John Wundes, but it’s worth mentioning to those who don’t follow Vectips on Twitter.

About Script Bay

Script Bay is a free Creative Suite CS5 script panel replacement created by In-Tools Solutions. It’s pretty easy to get setup and the creators are constantly updating and improving the extension. For me, it’s a lot easier to access the scripts from a panel rather than fiddling with menus. Check out the In-Tools Solutions site to download the extension and learn how to install it.

Notes

I had a couple problems installing the extension because of a bug in the Adobe Extension Manager CS5 and Mac OS 10.7.1. Adobe has a patch that fixes the problem and the next update to the Extension Manager should fix the problem. Read this forum thread for more info.

  1. I think everything published made a lot of sense. However, think on
    this, suppose you typed a catchier post title? I am not suggesting
    your content is not good., however suppose you added something that makes people desire more?
    I mean Script Bay: Script Panel Extension | Vectips is kinda vanilla.
    You ought to peek at Yahoo’s home page and see how they create article titles to grab people
    to click. You might try adding a video or a related picture
    or two to grab people interested about everything’ve got to say.
    Just my opinion, it would make your website a little bit more interesting.
