I'm still not following.
Could you post a screenshot from cs5 to clarify?
There is a script menu under File>Scripts (where your installed scripts show) and you can record actions.
You can install panels made in configurator (your own or downloaded ones) and they would show under Window>Extensions (with an open file).
Not sure what you mean here, but the above menu is esentually the same in CS5 and CS6. Scripts are under the File menu both versions.
See this attached image now. I've found the answer by myself. Just as I looked up in an old
Photoshop CS4 book, that I have.
Custom made scripts were called scripts, for many years. Now they call it actions...
I just typed Alt+F9, and it was there. Great !
Thanks for your effort.
Actions and Scripts in Photoshop are two different things. That was the source of the confusion.
What is the real problem? That the actions you created in a prior version of Photoshop aren't in the panel in the new version? You have to save your custom Actions sets in .atn files, then load them yourself.
Nothing's stopping you from clicking the Actions entry of the Window menu to show the Actions panel.
Edit: Never mind - I missed reading the text from you second-to-last post.
