thanksPaul I'll try it and let you know how i get on
Had a few difficulties with that script... it had problems seeing sub layers
any further advice would be gladly accepted. ta
By sub layers do you mean grouped layers? (Clipping masks) if so that script won't do. I think Mike has done some work on these, maybe he can give some words of wisdom?
oh sorry - i meant layers within folders.
Ah, sorry I had to go out for a while. I have now altered the script and added a new option to save all layers from all layersets, hope this is what you want.
We just released this tool: FERRY (http://ferry.thedamarmada.com). It does exactly what you want and a little bit more.
I think it's worth it a try.
It comes with a free demo that will export 5 layers.
Take a look and let us know if it's what you need.
It could be easily tweaked.
