    Batch Rename Sublayers

    roaris

      I have read through the documentation, and seen many scripts on here from Carlos and others. I simply want to rename all my sublayers of a layer to 'nopointer'. I have tried to 'hack' one of the scripts that renumber, etc. I simply cannot get it to work.

       

      I tried this as well:

      ////START SCRIPT////

       

      //how to use: select objects that you want to rename, then run script

       

      //note - new name may not display until you unselect objects

       

       

      var docRef = activeDocument;

       

       

      for (var i=0; i < docRef.pageItems.length; i++)

       

      {

       

             if (docRef.pageItems[i].selected == true)

       

             {

       

                     docRef.pageItems[i].name = "nopointer";

       

             }

       

      }

       

      But I think that was for objects (Even though I selected all the objects)

       

      Thanks in advance!
