This is a significant missing feature that prevents me dumping Illustrator for good ☹️. I use simple macros in every Illustrator session, and although Adobe makes using their full API as difficult as possible, at least the application can record its own commands. Photo has macros, so why not Designer?

Why not use macros at the OS level? For example https://www.autohotkey.com/

Any updates on this from the developers? This is the biggest thing missing for me. 

 

I have to export so many variants of a single image. Changing some parameters such as size, BG color, tint color. It gets super tedious. 

 

Looking forward to being able to build plugins (or whatever you guys decide to call them).

As a matter of principle, developers do not comment on user requests.

I have a need to automate something myself.  I have groups within groups and then items with "toggled" visibility.  For example, I have 2 items in a group where one is visible and the other is not visible.  I need to write a simple script to basically flip the visibility toggle.  The reason for this is that I've designed a UI with "Edit" and "View" states.  There are multiple UI elements that are affected by this state.  It would probably also help to be able to "tag" these UI elements in some way so that the automation could work better.  Anyway, regardless, the most basic functionality I need is a way to trigger this script (button and assignable keyboard shortcut) and the ability to iterate through the hierarchy of elements and see what their names are and then toggle state based on current visibility and name.  It would be nice if the language supported was TypeScript but that's less important than the API itself just being available.
