All the existing threads on this post are 'read only', so I decided to start a new one in case anyone else feels like venting on why Adobe have made it impossible to use the 'contract' option after doing a 'select all'. I mean, why?! This was so handy to make a quick border for trimming after print. What's the logic?!
Just upgraded from CS3 and boy does this feel like a backward step.
My understanding is that it's ALWAYS been "wrong" (I agree with you), and Chris Cox of Adobe fixed it in Photoshop CS3. That would have been the end of it, but apparently his having done so broke something else (maybe pre-recorded actions or something?) and they forced him to revert the behavior back to the "wrong" way.
Thanks Noel, seems we can send a man to the moon but not make this work... Maybe with enough voices they'll find a way? I can wish...
"We" can't send a man to the moon. Our parents and grandparents could.
Clearly Chris should have put back the functionality and added an option to have it work either way.
Khechog, tell me what discussion you need to contribute to, so that I can move it here.
Trevor Morris has a script for that issue: http://www.adobe.com/cfusion/exchange/index.cfm?event=extensionDetail& extid=1037292
If that action doesn't work, you might try this script:
Hi, thank you for posting the link. I saved it according to the instructions but find it's not showing in PS and when I 'browse' to find it the file is greyed out as it's a .txt file where as all the other script files are .jsx files. Is there something I can do to change the file type?
HI, I'm using Mountain Lion. Renaming worked, for some reason the file had '.txt' appended to '.jsx' in the file name.
Many thanks for the help, it's a small issue but one that makes all the difference to my work flow.
