1) You need to update to the absolute latest version of Photoshop (v13.1) that was pushed out around Dec 13th 2012; and...
2) When you are alt-clicking on a layer or group, DO NOT alt click on the thumbnail image, but rather instead, click on its text label to the right of the thumbnail images. Then you will see the CSS Copy option.
Hope this helps.
These are two very clear, and I'm over it. I wrote it as it still does not appear in the options! But thanks anyway.
I've noticed that a different language is installed like any other program. This may cause the problem?
new developments: a PC laptop has been updated, but not on the iMac. However, I used to work with the iMac. I'm going to take the Adobe and re-installing.
Hi, I joined creative cloud yesterday (07 Feb 2013) and downloaded and installed photoshop CS6 extended. Surely then I sould have thwe export CSS function? But I don't!
My photoshop says it's version 13.0.1 x32 (PC). Do I not have the latest version? i.e. 13.1 ? How do I get it?
Deactivate it. Close out PhotoShop, then open it again and reactivate it.
I'm on a Mac and it wouldn't let me deactivate it, so I had to completely uninstall it. Hope you don't.
Hope that works for you.
Thanks for the advice JulesN - tried what you said but it didn't work. I think I know why now - Apparently 13.1 does not work on Windows XP (which is what I have). So this great feature it seems is out of my reach...
Is the only way to update to 13.1 by paying $50 a month for creative cloud? This feature does not seem attached to cloud functionality at all. Is there a way to use this feauture without creative cloud?
There is no way to have this option without creative cloud? This feature has nothing to do with the cloud. Why are photoshop versions fracturing in this manner?
Dont' be surprised. It's been Adobe's strategy since the Cloud was launched last year.
The extra Cloud-only features are designed to make the Cloud more and more attractive. The new features have little or no connection to Cloud functionality itself, they're just desirable new features designed to add value to the Cloud apps and make perpetual licensed customers want them.(Seems to be working).
Adobe has said that Cloud-only features in the CS6 cycle will be introduced into the next paid-for perpetual license upgrade (probably CS7) - but Cloud members will always get early access to them.
Same applies to new Cloud-only features introduced in other Cloud apps such as Illustrator and Dreamweaver.
Just for the sake of comparison, let’s compare Photoshop’s new built-in Copy CSS feature to a free Photoshop plugin called CSS3Ps, which essentially promises the same functionality. And i must say they’re actually better than the built-in Photoshop feature.
