A long while back, I started noodling around with Applescript and Adobe Illustrator. At that time, I promised to share any progress I'd made, and make some scripts available once I had something worth sharing. Well, it's been a slow year...
But the long dry spell is over. If you make frequent use of Illustrator's File > Place... command, then you're probably aware of one of its biggest limitations: it will only place one external image file at a time.
At work, I use this command all the time, to place tens and dozens of screen-captures or Photoshop mockups into detailed user-flow diagrams that we produce for the products we build. Placing these images, one-by-one, is a miserable time-sink. Hence, my desire to have something like Multi-Placer.
