I have an Action script that includes a Stop for the user to select an area with the Marquee tool. The user then hits play to continue to the next steps. The Action includes Save and Close. This runs as expected on a single file but I want to run in on a folder of images through the Automate-Batch dialog. I get the "A command was cancelled or stopped while batching. Continue with next file or stop." dialog box. If I continue the Action skips the remaining steps and opens the next file. If I stop it runs on that file and stops. I want to stop, make the selection, continue, and then have the Action open the next file, and the next and so forth. How can I do this?
Link to my Action.
Thanks in advance for any help.
Scritping will be better solution for you. Anyway to help you in your problem it will be better if you illustrate it by screenshots and attach a link to your .atn file. You may also record your doings and insert made video.
Thanks Kukurykus. I added a link to the Action and screen shots.
It sounds like you wish to have a semi-automated batch...
Add "allow continue" to the stop as one can't stop in a running batch and then successfully continue.
After the stop, insert a "select all" and "transform selection" to provide the user with an interactive selection creation while still successfully running the batch through all input files.
This worked! I found it does not need the Stop with the dialalog box checked on Transform Selection the Action pauses at that point and continues after checking commit. Then it opens the next file.
Thanks for the tip!
