This script only works with KBar version 1.1.1+


  • Add a path, rectangle, ellipse or polygon
  • To the active comp or the selected shape layer(s)
  • Either as a parametric- or bezier shape
  • Define the size or define a default size
  • Or fit the shape to the shortest side of the comp


  • Open up KBar and create a new Run JSX/JSXBIN file button
  • Navigate to the primitives.jsx file
  • Write the shape's name in the argument field
  • And add the corresponding icon

By default it adds a parametric shape. Use the alt key to add a bezier shape and use the shift key to fit it to the comp.
