Hi All,


Suppose I open the photoshop file(.psd) and font is missing in the layer. Photoshop shows error dialog box. Can automation plug-in get any kind of notification regarding this font missing in layer ?

I want to do some stuff if font is missing in the layer.


Any idea/logic ?

    It would be nice if the warnings came back wouldn't it. That would be some major undertaking as Photoshop is not set up for that. We only give back the 'what we did' results or an error code now. And I don't think you can get the information from the text layers to see that they are displaying the yellow warning icon either.


    You might try looking at the font in use for the text layer and comparing that to the known font list for Photoshop.
