AppleScript support broken in CS5!

May 16, 2010 3:48 AM

Following the 'Changes to Photoshop CS5 and Applescript' thread. I'd like to emphasis that AppleScript support is way broken in CS5.

 

We have compiled scripts which fail to execute properly. Once this happens, every AppleScript command then fails including trying to compile new commands using the script editor.

This breaks our application which was working great for years on CS3 and CS4.

 

What can be done?

    What specifically is broken in your scripts?

     

    Do your compiled script make explicit reference to the application version "Adobe Photoshop CS3"?

    Just a thought - shouldn't you set the masterdocument variable after you open the file?

    Otherwise it's pointing to nothing.

    ah, ok, I started reading the script and missed the steps above it.

    I totally second that, Applescript is completely broken.

    Launching script editor before you launch any script and getting the Photoshop CS5 dictionary works, but launch any script, it will fail and then try to get the applescript dictionary again and it won't show anything specific to photoshop (just the item any cocoa app has).

     

    It's a terrible bug, I have to revert to PS4 and stop CS5 deployment !
