Please HELP! I managed to re-record an existing Action without problem. I double click on <Set Layer style on current layer> and change to a new Layer Style for my Watermark Text. The <Contour> is Linear. The Actions panel turns red during editing.
But when I run > Automate > Batch and select that edited Action, the <Layer Style> screen pops-up for each photo and the only way to finish the batch of photos is to click <OK> for each photo. I’m using Photoshop CS5. I have refresh Photoshop, restart my laptop but the problem remains.
I did another copy of the original Action and just changed the
value in <Text Layer> and it works in the Batch processing. This problem only happens when I changed the value in the <Layer Style>.
I have been looking into many forums and still could not find the solution. I appreciate some advice as soon as possible as this problem has dragged on for two weeks now.
Thank you in advance.
Thank you for your response. I'm sorry to say that I mainly familar with the Basic Tools. It's just recently that I started to use <Automate> to save me time.
So, which pertinent Panels are you referring to? Where can I find the <Toggle> dialog box?
I never changed the default values in Photoshop setup.
OK, I know what you mean on second look of your screenshot. The <Toggle> box is unchecked as you can see from my screenshot.
Since this edited <Action> requires a response, I did a screenshot, before I click <OK> for the next image/photo to continue.
I make a copy of the original Action <Main WM Name 70> to change the values in the Layer Style. Note that the original Action runs without problem.
OK. I decided to do it from the beginning.
1)Did a Copy of existing <Action> Main WM Name 70
2)From <Action> Main WM Name 70 copy, I changed the value in its Layer Style
3)Run <Automate> Select <Action> Main WM Name 70 copy
4)Click <OK> to Run the Batch processing
5)On first photo, the <Style Layer> screen pops up after the TEXT "Watermark" appears on the photo
6)Click <OK> to continue to second photo
7)Click <Cancel> on second photo to stop the Batch processing
8)Click <Stop> when another message pops up
Note: The following steps are shown in the following photos below.
P/S Could I have left out some options in step 3 above?
But I have no problem with Action created for the 1st time.
This problem only happens when I changed the Style Layers in an existing Action.
As silly as it sounds to be, I found a way out!
I decided to change the value again in the <Layer Style> on the same Action (ie Main WM Name 70 copy), and RUN <Automate> and on second RUN the <Layer Style> screen doesn't pop-up!
I just couldn't believe my eyes and did some rounds of testing! And it works:
a)Firstly, I will change the <Layer Style> to any value and saved it
(Just to test it, I Run <Automate> and the <Layer Style> screen pops-up at each photo)
b)Then I change again the <Layer Style> to the actual value I want
c)Run <Automate> without the <Layer Style> screen pops-up
To test further, oddly enough, if I change the <Layer Style> value the 3rd time, the pops-up screen appear again! And to overcome the same problem, I have to change the value 4th time, and the problem disappears.
So simple solution (at least for me) and yet I cracked my head for two weeks to overcome it!
Thanks for your time, c.pfaffenbichier.
