First off I am working on Mac. I have 1000's of files on photoshop that need the same exact redundant manual task.
I need help building 2 seperate scripts.
1st Script, need to make sure there is only 1 layer in the Layers window.
2nd Script, Need to check for a single path.
I have zero coding exprience and have been frantically been looking around the web for a copy paste script but I have no idea how to excute that. I have tried the actions panels but it is very limited.
I am using Script Editor if there is a better app to use for scripting I welcome that.
1) There is a conditional action to check for whether an image has layers (1 or more) or is flattened with a special Background layer, which technically is a single layer, but this may not meet your criteria?
2) Conditional actions don't include paths, so you would need a script for this one anyway.
It is easy enough to script a warning/alert when opening a document (Script Events Manager ) if it contains > 1 layer or path, however, if you want automation to actually "do something" then more info would be required.
