Copy Selected File Names

Is there a script to copy the selected file names from within Adobe Bridge CC?

(I have a script that copies a single file path. I don't need the path for this use. And I do need to be able to copy multiple file names at once.)

Thanks!

prprts = (slctns = app.document.selections).reflect.properties
itms = prprts.slice(0, -(prprts.length - slctns.length)); while
(!isNaN(itms[0])) itms.push(slctns[itms.shift()].name); itms

Bridge gave me an error on that code. "An error occurred while running a startup script named..."

Is it to be saved as file type .jsx?

Yes with .jsx extension, but it wasn't meant to be put to StartupScripts. Use it like you need.

You can use one of the metadata export scripts:

 

Extracting Metadata to .CSV

 

Outside of Bridge, there are options in both Windows and Mac operating systems.

You can also use my Folder List Export which can be configured on the fly to export varios metadata and filenames.

Something broke. None of my startup scripts show up in the Bridge context menu anymore. I tried removing them both by Bridge > Edit > Preferences > Disable All and by removing them from the startup scripts folder and adding them back... then restarting Bridge. They just don't show up anymore!

 

Windows 10.0.19042

Adobe Bridge 2021 11.0.2.123

Attachments:

* Startup scripts folder as shown when using "Reveal My Startup Scripts"

* Startup scripts as shown by Bridge > Edit > Preferences

* The Bridge context menu

Kukurykus, thanks that restored Bridge and didn't clobber too many of my settings.

And the solution that works for extracting the file names is:

Extract Metadata.jsx

Many others were suggested. Extract Metadata was the first one that I got working.

Extract Metadata

Thanks for all the tips!

My code does the same. Save it and run by double clicking when you have some files selected in Bridge:

 

#target bridge

prprts = (slctns = (ad = app.document).selections).reflect
.properties, itms = prprts.slice(0, -(prprts.length - slctns.length))
while(typeof itms[0] == 'object') itms.push(slctns[itms.shift()].name)
with(File(ad.presentationPath + '/names.txt'))
	open('w'), write(itms.join('\n')), close()

Its a bit of a pain but this can be further modified to copy the content to the Clipboard on both platforms.
