Configurator-next?

Dec 14, 2011 2:41 PM

Tags: #update #configurator

Hi,

is there any news about the next version of Configurator?

It's long time since I've heard someone at Adobe talking about it (maybe I've missed it). Adobe is moving fast forward (Creative Cloud, annual release cycles) and I'm afraid they may drop the whole project. It's on the Adobe Labs, by the way, and technologies in the Labs may be subject to sudden abandon.

Kind regards

    Unofficial information, Configurator for CS6 is already in schedule, no new feature enhancement, just fix several critical bugs, and make it work in next photoshop release.

    Thank you for the good "Unofficial" news Zhpingw.

    I think it's a good product and has a great potential if its features are increased.

    We are currently working on Configurator 3. I am pleased to say that it will have some new features and we hope to have a prerelease version soon. Probably within a couple of weeks.

    Hi Jonathan, I've just been going through my panels in Config 2 and updating all the actions and panel names (no spaces) so they work with CS6.

     

    I have written articles and made my panels available to other users http://www.exposingfashion.com/2011/02/07/adobe-configurator-everythin g-you-need-nothing-you-dont/

     

    I'd like to put Configurator through it's paces.

    thanks!

    Hi Jonathan,

     

    I've been building panels for Photoshop using Configurator since version 1. I was wondering if I could get access to Configurator 3 to make sure a smooth upgrade will be present when my company upgrades to CS6 in a few weeks.

     

    Name: Shawn Flanagan

     

     

    Thanks

    Hi Jonathan,

    That issue sounds specific to your machine. I am also using Windows 7 with Photoshop CS5, and have had no issues getting my panels to load into Photoshop.

     

     

    Could you provide more information about your machine (32 or 64-bit) and how you were trying to load them into Photoshop? I may be able to help you get them loaded.

    my machine was just built recently, all works well untill i export, when i choose the panels folder it gives message can not load to panels folder. Tried exporting to desktop, that worked , but when i try to move or copy to panels folder it says i dont have permission ( i checked and i am logged on as administator)  tried to use adobe extention manager and cant get it to move to there either. i am using windows 7 64 bit intel 2600 processor, asus mother board .. dont know what else you need to know, thank you so much for trying to help

    That sounds like an issue with 64-bit Windows 7 permissions. I also have Windows 7 64-bit, and I noticed the permission thing as well. All I have to do is click "continue" and then it works.

     

    When you try copying your panels folder from your desktop, does the permission pop-up have a continue button? When I try to do this, I see the following:

    popup.gif

     

    After clicking continue, it moves my folder into the panels directory and allows me to open Photoshop and see my extensions listed in the "Window -> Extensions" menu.

     

    If this doesn't work for you, let me know and I can show you a different way through Extension Manager.

    The main thing to make it work with Extension Manager in Windows 7 64-bit is to make sure you have Extension Manager running as administrator. I can do a quick overview of each step to make sure we're on the same track.

     

    1. Open your panel in Configurator 2.0.

    01.jpg

     

    2. Go to "File -> Export Panel"

    02.jpg

     

    3. Export to your desktop

    03.jpg

     

    4. If there are no permission problems, you will see a "successfully exported" dialog box. Click OK

    04.jpg

     

    5. Right-click on your icon for Adobe Extension Manager, and choose "run as administrator". If you don't have a shortcut icon to Extension Manager, you can add one quickly to your desktop, just to make sure you can right-click it and choose "run as administrator"

    05.jpg

     

    6. In Extension Manager, choose "File -> Package ZXP Extension". CS4 & Configurator 1.0 used MXP extensions, but CS5 & Configurator 2.0 use ZXP extensions

    06.jpg

     

    7. Select the MXI file in your panel folder that was exported to your desktop

    07.jpg

     

    8. Save as a ZXP file in the same folder

    08.jpg

     

    9. If there are no permission problems, you will see a "successfully created" dialog box. Click OK

    09.jpg

     

    10. Still in Extension Manager, go to "File -> Install Extension"

    10.jpg

     

    11. Choose the ZXP file for your panel and select Open

    11.jpg

     

    12. If there are no permission problems, you will see a "successfully installed" dialog box. Click OK

    12.jpg

     

    13. Now you should see your panel listed in the extension manager list for Photoshop CS5. Make sure the "Enabled" checkbox next to your panel is checked

    13.jpg

     

    14. Open Photoshop and go to "Window -> Extensions". If everything was successful, you will see your panel listed in this submenu. Click on it to open your panel

    14.jpg

     

     

    If these steps don't solve your problems, let me know where the issue is appearing and I can try to help you out. My guess is that it would be related to your Windows 7 user account's permissions level.
