Hello Friends,

I found below code to copy path of the selected object in Adobe bridge. but the issue is even I select multiple images its copy only one path. can somebody help me to customize this to copy all path of selected items.

 

#target bridge   
   if( BridgeTalk.appName == "bridge" ) {  
bridgePath = new MenuElement("command", "Path to Clipboard", "at the end of Thumbnail");
}
bridgePath.onSelect = function () { 
   pathToClipboard();
   }
function pathToClipboard(){
var sels = app.document.selections;
app.system("echo "+decodeURI(sels[0].spec.fsName) +"|clip");
}

var sels = app.document.selections;
for(var i = 0; i <

Thank you so much @gregreser now the script works as expect, you saved my many clicks.

 

"|clip" was the unwanted code in this case, I was not realized it at starting, but now I removed it from the existing code before use this script. and its working perfectly.
