- Another way to customize your user experience…with Illustrator is to use custom scripts…in order to make the app do…what it natively can't do out of the box.…A simple Google search will bring up…thousands of custom scripts people have created…and provided online.…Once you have a script,…you can add it to Illustrator and start using it.…Here's how you add a custom script to Illustrator.…I love to be able to customize my creative workflow…and one way I do that is by creating…my own custom scripts to make Illustrator…behave the way I want it to:…to do things that it can't do out of the box.…
