If you share a link to the ATN file, I'll convert it for you.

 

Otherwise, you may be better off using the scripting listener plug-in to record the code. Don't expect it to record the action steps, it doesn't. Just manually recreate each step of the action and copy/paste the appropriate block of code form the log file, being careful not to copy unnecessary code blocks such as auto saves.

You need to select the action set, then use the Action menu to save the action to file (.atn).

There are two different preset folders, a user level and an application level folder, see the previous link to my blogpost for more info.

 

You can save the .atn file anywhere, such as your desktop.

 

Good luck!

Note: Don't save your custom Actions into the Default Actions Set, you risk losing them if the Default Action Set is reloaded/reset. Always make a Custom named Action Set and create your Actions in this set. Always save the Action Set to .atn file as newly created Action Sets/Actions are temporary.

 

Here you go:

Yes, like I previously wrote:

 

"Otherwise, you may be better off using the scripting listener plug-in to record the code."

in fact either the action works very well, but I sometimes have the impression that when doing the action modify the content, which must therefore open a new window, and the action does not wait for the window is open to search for the next step

Hi, sometimes, it is best to select layers using the select next layer on top or below shortcuts Option-Shift-[ (Mac) or Alt+Shift+[ (PC) or Option-Shift-] (Mac) or Alt+Shift+] (but they might not be available on an AZERTY keyboard" rather than by name, unless you are 100% sure that the layers will be named the same way.)
