    How to make a PS action choose "any" path?

      Hi community,

       

      Does anyone know of a way to make a PS action choose "any" path? There is only ever one path in the file but it may not always be named the same.

       

      We are sending hundreds of files weekly to a clipping path provider, sometimes they name the only path they make "Path 1" sometimes "path 1" or "work path".

      Since the company employs hundreds of PS operators it's inevitable that the paths may sometimes have different names, but I can't afford having my actions stop because of this.

      So, I want to make it so that PS choose the only path there is in the file, no matter what it's name, is this at all possible?

       

      Here is an example:

       

        "E-COMMERCE   Set background to 5% black    TEXT select Selectˇˇˇˇ null nullobj  name Path Path 1  TEXT set Setˇˇˇˇ null nullobj  prop ChnlfselT   obj  Enmr PathOrdnTrgtVrsnlong  vectorMaskParamsbool   TEXT inverse Inverse  TEXT fill Fillˇˇˇˇ null UsngenumFlCnBlckOpctUntF#Prc@ Md  enumBlnMNrml   TEXT set Setˇˇˇˇ null nullobj  prop ChnlfselT   enumOrdnNone"

       

      I want to change "Path 1" in red above to "any" path...

       

      Thanks in advance!
