Title Case

Illustrator’s Title Case function is…how do we say it nicely?…hmm…it is very straight forward, it capitalizes the first letter of every word. While it works on some scenarios, it simply doesn’t cut it for properly capitalizing titles.

Insert Page Numbers v2

Insert Page Numbers v2

Artboards made their appearance in CS4, and ever since, users have asked the logical question “can I add page numbers to my Artboards?”. The Answers has been a quick “No”….until now, by way of a script.

// Illustrator Insert Page Numbers v2 Script

it’s primary use is to insert page numbers but it can insert anything you type in the input box.
there are a few keywords to use to insert date, time, full name, and file name.

to insert

  • page number – type – *page*
  • total pages – type –  *pages*
  • date – type –  *date*
  • time – type –  *time*
  • full name – type –  *fname*
  • file name – type –  *file*

for example to insert “page 1 of 12” type “page *page* of *pages*” (without quotes).

Note, in this version, pressing “Ok” does not dismiss the dialog. The idea is to be able to enter for example:
Pages on bottom right, and file name on bottom left without having to fire the script twice.

One more thing, press ESC to close the dialog.
