How are you doing?
I would like to create colections from selected items, or an array of full paths.
Could you show me an example or tel me when can I find a updated documentation.
The last one than I´ve founded belongs to CS3 version yet.
You can find the latest SDK at https://developer.adobe.com/console/servicesandapis
You can create a new collection from selected thumbnails in Bridge this way:
var colItems = app.document.selections; var colName = "New Collection"; var col = app.createCollection(colName); app.addCollectionMember(col,colItems); app.document.thumbnail = col;
Oh, by the way, there is a bug in Bridge 2023 so that the new collection does not appear in the Collections panel list unless you restart Bridge. Hopefully this will be fixed soon 🙂
Thanks for your answer. Thanks a lot for your help.
I think we are almost there. I need to create a colection from a list of files. All these files are in diferent folders, so, I can´t use selection.
I´ve found a solution before, whre I write a XML file and storage it in a folder inside the main folder of the Bridge, but it didn´t work for me because the I need to restart Brige to the new collection appear (the same bug that you said).
About the documentation, my firewall was blocking the adress you sent me. I will download it again.
Thans for yout hand.
You could have a palette window, or a tabbed panel, that stays open as you navigate through different folders and alows you to add files to a list then, when you are finished, you click a button to create a new collection. Let me know if you want to collaborate on it.
You actually don't need to restart Bridge to show a new collection, you can close the Collections panel and reopen it.
I have a script that can find and save files to a collection, Multisearch Plus. Its part of my free Utility Script pack, Apache-licensed if you want to user parts of the code.
