    Bug: Save for Web using custom name recorded as Action is broken


      Open an image, then start recording an action (doesn't matter if it's a new action or adding to a previous one). Go to File->Save For Web. It appears to not matter options you pick here, but I've tried JPG, PNG-8, and PNG-24. When you hit save, it asks you what to name the file. Name the file anything other than the name of the document itself, so call it test.jpg. The file is saved as test.jpg this time. Stop recording the action, and hit the expand button on that Export list item you just created. It will say on the 4th line Custom File Name: "test.html". When you run the action again (not when recording it), it will save the jpg image as test.html. The same is true if was a PNG before.


      So, the bug is that new actions ignores whatever extension you use when using a custom name in a Save For Web.


      My work around for this bug is if you record the action in Photoshop CS5, save the actions to a file (has to be done at the folder level), then import them into CS6, they'll run fine. The problem is at the recording of the action.


      I'm using Windows 7 64bit.


      This is bug find #2 for me. I don't know if that's a good or bad thing.
