I want to be able to select several links on the Links panel and copy just those filenames to the clipboard. This is so after I do my magazine layout, I can email the photographers a list of their images I've used, so they can prep and send high-res versions. I know you can copy the names with res and colourspace and whatnot from the Links panel menu, but it seems it should be easy enough to just snag the names alone.
Of course, a script is the answer. I've tried scripting it by chopping and pasting sort-of-almost-nearly scripts, but that's not worked out so far— and I'm afraid scripts are still Greek to me.
Thanks if you can help!
I think we have no access to the selected items in the Links Panel through scripting.
However you can write your own links panel with ScriptUI showing all links. From that one you could get access to the selected links of your custom panel.
