Getting closer. Apparently, the Tutorial Builder did not get installed by double clicking on the expanded file I downloaded. I had to install it from AEM manually. Now it is listed under extensions.
Running the Tutorial Builder indicates it is capturing and does indeed capture the before/after images. However when double clicking on the html file generated there are no steps/links below the photos.
Now I'll go back and read other comments in the forum, hoping to find the answer there.
Strange replying to myself on a forum, but it is what it is, as they say. :-)
In the former post you told that you
deleted the scriptlistener.8li file from Automate folder as suggested.
Just make sure scriptlistener.8li is in the "plugin" or "automate" Folder.
If its there and everything worked until here, you should have a file named ScriptingListenerJS.log on your desktop. You just might check if its there or opening it with a text-editor (notepad or similar) and post its content here.
and whatever you install make sure you run it as Administrator.
I can see two things that need resolving as the software is "as is" when you uninstall the product it leave an "MXI" file still on the system. First uninstall Tutorial builder & Adobe Air Via the control panel, then Go To
C:\program Files\Adobe\photoshop CS5\ and look for TutorialBuilder.mxi and delete
Check that you have in C:\program Files\Adobe\photoshop CS5\Plug-ins\Automate\Scriptlistener.8LI still in the file if not copy an recreate
Ablichter & Alexanderdavid,
Thank you both for your replies. I have it working now. The reason why I deleted scriptlisterner from my Automate folder when I was done trying it out was because the documentation suggested that. Otherwise it would keep capturing steps generating a large file. I would just copy it in again whenever I would try to run Tutorial Builder.
Here's how I got it to work. I had done the installation properly (the manual approach) etc, but I know nothing about using scripts in CS5. In snooping around I found and did the following.
I clicked on File > Scripts > Scripts Events Manager. In the dialog that opened, I checked the box that says Enable Events to Run Scripts/Actions. That did it. Now Tutorial Builder runs. I have written/used Actions without this box being checked. I have no idea what it does or how it is used, but by putting the check mark there, things work right.
I don't think it was mentioned in the documentation. If it was I missed it.
Now the fun begins to actually play with the tool.
First, Alexanderdavid, I don't really understand what you were saying, and I did not do what you suggested since I got Tutorial Builder to work. Or at least partially.
I have two problems/questions. The first quick tutorial I wrote was applying a couple of enhancements to an image without using adjustment layers. All of the steps were recorded. In the second one I tried, I used a Levels Adjustment Layer. In this tutorial, on Step one was recorded. None of the steps/adjustments I made within the Levels dialog box were recorded.
Also, for both tutorials when I clicked on the Show me in Photoshop I got a Windows error message sying I did not have the right program installed. Does this imply I did not load the AIR Player program properly or at all?
At this time, does Tutorial Builder support Adjustment Layers?
Obviously, I need to learn more, but I'm getting there. Any help or comments will be greatly appreciated.
