Is there a way you can stop Photoshop changing the text layer name based on what you type or paste into the actual layer? I know you can stop that happening AFTER you pasted some copy by editing the layer manually, but it becomes tedious if you need to do it for 50 layers. I want to create a template with English layer names that do not change names regardless of what the layer actually contains. The reason I need this is I work on different language versions and I use actions and scripts that look for certain words based on the English template.
Just double click on the layer name not the T icon. Chan the name and it will stay that name no matter how you change the text. Its only when you don't name the layer that the text and layer name are the same.
I wanted my master template to have the English layer names, as per the content of the layer. When I work in other language files, assuming I haven't tampered with the layer names in the template, the paste of new text will force the layer name to change to the new text, which is exactly what I don't want. I don't want to manually change the name of each text layer in the template, as I have 50 text layers. It's ok if the template layer has the same name as the content of the whole layer, but since I'm using actions to find these layers later on, it is a problem in different language files, which change the layer name to that language content, making my actions not work, since it is looking for English layer names. Ideally I want the template to inherit the text name, and the language files to not do that.
