If Svija Tools is Missing or Broken in Illustrator

You may encounter one of two problems:

  • you do not see Svija Tools under Window › Extensions
  • Svija Tools opens but it is blank (there are no buttons or logo)

In this case, you will need to turn on Debug Mode for Adobe Illustrator:

  • Open the Registry Editor (Windows Start, then type “regedit”)
    (if version 11 is not present go to the version you see)
  • Add a new String Value
  • Call it PlayerDebugMode, and set the value to 1 (source)

Restart Adobe Illustrator.
