Is possible to add a shortcut to the bridge contextual menu (right-click menu) in a mac system?

Adding the shortcut through the system preferences is not working.

OSX Catalina

BRCC 2020

Adobe Scripts

Install that script pack, the PDFExport script automates creating PDFs and even adds a couple of features. You can choose images in the regular workspaces which is much easier. The pack is Apache-licensed so if you want to modify or fork it, be my guest.

Hi Lumagraphics,

In the past I have used the scripts you shared in this forum and it's clear from the scripts that you are an expert in this subject matter.

 

I have searched online for ways to add a keyboard shortcut to the Bridge contextual menu and have not been able to find a solution. Thinking, if I can locate the function responsible for executing the Add To Output Document action,  I could copy the function to an external jsx file and place it into the Bridge startup script folder. The idea is to have the function Add To Output Document available as a top menu item to assign shortcuts through the OSX system preferences. Does this approach make sense and is it doable?

 

I looked into Photoshop ContactSheetII.jsx but did not find the function Add To Output Document.

I don't see in Bridge 2018 & 2021 'Add To Output Document' item for thumbnail menu. What is that?

This can't be done in the way you want. There is a function to add items to the Output object but you have to specify that first, not just use the one that's already set.

Thank you for getting back. I am trying to simplify the contact sheet creation process by adding a shortcut to the Add To Output Document contextual menu item.  I am using a contact sheet template and shortcut to the Output module. The step that I like to automate is adding the selected thumbnails to the contact sheet canvas.

 

How would you recommend I approach the problem of simplifying the contact sheet creation?

Where can I find the function to add items to the Output Object?

I use a custom script.to create PDFs in the Output module. I need to update the version I have for download on Dropbox but that might do tha trick for you.

The script pack looks great. I did and a quick test with the PDF Export script and it does the trick.

Thank you very much for sharing the updated script pack!

This link does not "simplify" the contact sheet process, however, as there are not many options out there it is worth mentioning:

 

ContactSheetX / v2.2
