Illustrator Plugin.

I'm writing an adobe illustrator plugin, it is really a simple one that adds a custom menu in the File menu and allow you to open, close and save files to a custom repository.

Adding the menu and iteracting with it is straightforward, the SDK allow you to do whatever you want trough kind of interfaces.

Opening a file is another matter. Why they doesn't have an interface for such kind of actions? They only way to open a file is to use the action manager interface (AIActionManagerSuite) and use the PlayActionEvent using the "adobe_openDocument". Obviously it isn't described anywhere.

More later on others aspects.
