Dear all, need some quick help, my photoshop Actions panel no longer have the edit button 😞 

- replaced by "add new" (second left icon on the bottom right)

- double click on the specific command/step now runs this specifc step instead of letting me edit the action per Adobe's user guide. 

 

Many thanks 

 

My Actions panel:

Adobe User Guide (extract from here) :

Overwrite a single command

  • In the Actions panel, double-click the command.
  • Enter the new values, and click OK.

Double-click works on actions that have parameters that can be edited.

Your example of Transform is not something that can be edited once recorded, you need to record a new transform.

Double-clicking on a step like "Fill" Where there is a modal dialog box allows you to edit the action step directly.

Thanks vy much for the reply.

action all over again? Interesting...

You can record just the steps you want to change.

Not the entire action, just the Transform task you want to replace.

Each step in action is independent but also has some requirements like active selection, layer selected and so on. Not only that you can use existing steps in the same action, you can also drag actually move or copy steps to some other set and action with no problem. Changing, deleting or re-recording single or multiple steps in action is not problem at all.

In addition to the double-click on the action step that you wish to edit, there is also the corresponding menu command to "record again" on a selected action step:

"Actions panel no longer have the edit button"

 

What you mean by edit button? Where was that button in the past? I can not remember?
