I was looking at the "selection" dropdown menu, and noticed that while AI has a "same stroke", and "same fill", it doesn't have a way to select PathItems below a given size.
So I thought, "hey, I can script, this can't be all that hard..."
End result is my first JS4AI for 2009. "Select Paths By Size" simply selects objects smaller (or larger) than a user-supplied threshold of pixels.
(Also note, this is my first script that uses a slider bar.)
I envision it being used to remove small extra bits from a vector-traced image, but I'm sure you can find something cleverer to do with it... Is cleverer a word???
Let me know if you come up with anything cool.
