I am not sure what you are asking. Scriptlistener should record using/deleting a pattern.
What I did was as follows:
- opened Photoshop and opened an image
- created a Pattern from that image (Define Pattern)
- added a Layer
- selected the Pattern Stamp tool and a Tool Preset
All of these tasks are logged by ScriptListener.
- went to the Pattern selection drop-down in the horizontal toolbar and selected the new Pattern ...
I cannot find a log for this.
- deleted that Pattern ... (so as to start over)
This does seem to be logged. My mistake earlier.
There is very limited scripting support for working with tool presets. And as far as I know no direct access to setting tool options. It is true that scriptlistener( or actions ) can't record everything one does in Photoshop. If some task doesn't record that normall means it can't be scripted.
Yes, that certainly seems to be so - I did some more trials with the Mixer Brush and changing out the options of any Preset (such as: Sample All Layers) seems not be supported by scripting. That's a big disappointment - having new users work with Tool Presets is well known to be a tough challenge, and not allowing or supporting simplification through PS Scripts or Actions is an unfortunate gap (IMHO).
Thanks for your assistance Michael.
I don't know if it would help with what you had in mind but you can get the setting of the current tool options. You should be able to at least check that the options are set corrrectly for your needs and prompt the user to change them and restart the script.
Yes, I'll think about it some more. Maybe it's possible to have a user make an instructed variation of the initial Preset and subsequently then save it and then recall it if needed (the latter two steps via a Script).
