    Actions - creating new layer always gives prompt

    clyman

      I'm using Ilustrator CS5 and created an action that does the following:

      • Selects all and copies an object
      • creates a new layer
      • pastes in places on the new layer
      • changes color of the selected object
      • renames the layer to the name of the color that was used
      • repeats so I have 21 different layers, all with different colors

       

      Overall, it works very well. But, every time it makes the new layer, I get a New Layer Dialog box and I have to click 'ok.'  As the action is creating 20 different layers, I'd love not to click ok for every new layer.  Not sure why this dialog is coming up as it doesn't when I record the action. Any ideas?

      Thanks,
