Add an ellipse via script
on May 7, 2020 at 2:03:06 pm

I am using

app.project.activeItem.selectedLayers[0].property("Contents").addProperty("ADBE Vector Group");

to add a shapelayer group inside an existing shapelayer. But it puts it under the existing group. I want to create it above the existing group.
Someone know how to do this?

I'm not sure if this does what you want, but give it a try:

var myGroup = app.project.activeItem.selectedLayers[0].property("Contents").addProperty("ADBE Vector Group");
