Problems with new crop functions and old crop actions

Mar 22, 2012 11:55 AM

Tags: #watson #pbf

I discovered that my actions imported from CS4, which contain preset dimensions for the crop window, do not function as written UNLESS the crop tool is activated before running the action. These actions are designed to open the crop window at a specific dimension, then stop, allowing me to move the crop window to the desired postion, then continue with the cropping and, finally, interpolation back to original image dimensions. However, in CS6, if you run these actions with any tool enabled OTHER THAN THE CROP TOOL, the crop window appears at the perimeter of the image. With the crop tool enabled, the actions function as written. Hopefully you can fix this before the final release.

 

I'm running Win 7 Pro on 64 bit machine, and the above problem occurred running the 32 bit CS6.

    you can set the crop tool to behave like the old one (classic mode).

    that doesn´t  help?

    Hi, it is possible to record tool selection, and also through tool presets selection.

    Can I get one of the actions in question so we can see what it is being asked to do?

    Thanks. Sounds like QE is able to reproduce. We'll investigate.

    Mike, did using a tool preset in the action to select the crop tool works, as suggested higher?
