Fixing Adobe Applescript Errors

Fixing Adobe Applescript Errors

If you are still using an Adobe Photoshop CS3 or CS4, you might have run into some funky Applescript errors. These errors sometimes pop-up as, “Error loading /Library/ScriptingAdditions/Adobe Unit Types.osax”, or “Can’t make 720 into type traditional points”, or something similar.

The fix for this is easy, and is provided straight from Adobe. The error comes from a conflict between the old 32-bit component and the newer 64-bit scripting environment of Mac OS X 10.6+ (Snow Leapard, Lion, and Mountain Lion).

There are three ways to fix the issue, but simplest is to download the updated file and install it into the “/Library/ScriptingAdditions” folder of your Mac, then restart your computer.
