Photoshop tool preset list, by current/active tool?

Ok so I know that this has been asked before but In a more general way(recently). I'm trying to get the list of toolpresets but only those of the active tool selected. So If I have the Brush tool selected, It would only scan/output for just the brush tool. I know you can do the tool presets list as a whole(see script below), but I'm trying to run a make new tool preset option(not the default) that you input the tool preset name you want, It scans the current active tool presets to see if that name exists, if it does already exist it error messages and restarts the input process again, halting. I can get it to check the whole list and work fine, but I'd like ONLY to check by active tool selected, so it only checks those of that type vs the entire list. By default photoshop already does it, it only checks the list of the tool you are using, i'm trying to do the same. Other wise as it stands now if there is a name for example in the eraser tool presets, and i try inputting that name as a regular brush tool preset, it finds the name and says i cannot process because the name already exists(in erasers), that's why Im asking. I hope this makes sense. What i started with was this script on the forums:

function getToolPresetNames() {
var ref = new ActionReference();
ref.putEnumerated( charIDToTypeID("capp"), charIDToTypeID("Ordn"), charIDToTypeID("Trgt") );
var appDesc = executeActionGet(ref); var List = appDesc.getList(stringIDToTypeID('presetManager'));
var presetNames=[];
var list = List.getObjectValue(7).getList(charIDToTypeID('Nm '));
for (var i = 0; i < list.count; i++) {
var str = list.getString(i);
presetNames
.push(str); } r
eturn
presetNames;

}

Here are the problems I see.  The check box in the preset pull-down dialog window on the bottom left  "Current Tool Only" effect the which "Tools presets"  a script can select.  When its state in uncheck any current Photoshop preset can be selected by a script. If the "preset" was not for the current tool the preset's tool will also be selected and become the current active tool. However if the "check box" state is checked only presets for the current tool can be selected.  So if you try to select a preset by name and it fails you do not know if the "Named Preset" exists or not because you don't know the state of the "check box" or what the current active Photoshop tool is. 

You can only select some Photoshop tools to activate the with a script the one that select tool name recorded in actions via action manager code.  Hpwever. when the state of the checkbox is not check you can select any tool preset to activate the tool and set the toop settings. If the prest fails to select you can load a preset for the tool and select it when the checkbox is not checked.  However, you do not know the state  of the "check box Current Tool Only"  nor can you set its state with a script.

The best I have been able to do is to inform the user with an alert to uncheck the check box "Current Tool Only"

Select Tool Preset script

// Note:  This script only works if the correct tool for the preset is currently selected.

//            Or "Current Tool Only" is not checked in Photoshop's  "Tool Options Bar" Presets pull-down list dialog at the bottom left. 

var ToolPresetName = "JJMack soft oval red brush" ; // The Photoshop Tool preset name that you created and saved into a set  

var ToolPresetSet  = "JJMackToolsPresetsSet";        // The SetName.tpl file need to be same folder as this Photoshop script.

try {SelectToolPreset(ToolPresetName);}

catch(e) {

  if (LoadToolPresetSet(ToolPresetSet)) {

  try {SelectToolPreset(ToolPresetName);}

  catch(e) {alert('Was unable to Select the Tools Preset "' + ToolPresetName + '".\nUncheck Preset pulld-down dialog "Current Tool Only" check box');}

  }

  else {alert("Was unable to load Tools Presets Set " + ToolPresetSet);}

}

// =================================================== Helper functions ===================================================== //

function SelectToolPreset(PresetName) {

  // === Select Preset, tool must be selected or 'show current tool only' unchecked  ===

  var desc = new ActionDescriptor();

  var ref = new ActionReference();

  ref.putName( stringIDToTypeID( "toolPreset" ), PresetName );

  desc.putReference( charIDToTypeID( "null" ), ref );

  executeAction( charIDToTypeID( "slct" ), desc, DialogModes.NO );

}

function LoadToolPresetSet(SetName) {

  returncode = true;

  var scriptLocation = String(findScript());

  var path = scriptLocation.substr(0, scriptLocation.lastIndexOf("/") + 1 ) ;

  var SetFile = new File(path + SetName + ".tpl");   // Requited to be in the script's folder

  if (!SetFile.exists) { returncode = false; }

  else {

  try {LoadToolsSet(SetFile);}

  catch(e) { returncode = false; }

  }

  return returncode ;

}

function LoadToolsSet(tplFile) {

  // ========load a set of Tools Presets=========================

  var desc = new ActionDescriptor();

  var ref = new ActionReference();

  ref.putProperty( charIDToTypeID( "Prpr" ), stringIDToTypeID( "toolPreset"  ));

  ref.putEnumerated( charIDToTypeID( "capp" ), charIDToTypeID( "Ordn" ), charIDToTypeID( "Trgt"  ) );

  desc.putReference( charIDToTypeID( "null" ), ref );

  desc.putPath( charIDToTypeID( "T   " ), new File( tplFile ) );

  desc.putBoolean( charIDToTypeID( "Appe" ), true );

  executeAction( charIDToTypeID( "setd" ), desc, DialogModes.NO );

}

// Find the location where this script resides

function findScript() {

  var where = "";

  try { FORCEERROR = FORCERRROR;}

  catch(err) { where = File(err.fileName);}

  return where ;

You may want to look at X's script PresetLister it list presets by  tool name.  The script is in his xTools package. PresetLister.js  I do not know how to find out what Photoshop tool is currently selected in the tools palette or if the edit toolbar icon is highlighted.

Thanks JJMack, from what you have posted and more research It seems like it is most likely impossible to list tool presets by tool type. Seems like these are the only possible choices(from X presetlistener seen below).  So can can get all the toolpresets currently loaded into the manager, but not differentiate what entry belongs to what tool e.g.: brush/eraser/smudge/etc. Hmm i figured there would be a way...

  self.brushes       = []; self.colors        = []; self.gradients     = []; self.styles        = []; self.patterns      = []; self.shapingCurves = []; self.customShapes  = []; self.toolPresets   = [];

The Preset Manager handles many presets beside "ToolPresets".  All can be listed. Some of the Presets you seem to be interested in are not "toolptesets" but are presets Photoshop tools can use like custom Brush, Shapes. Colors, Gradients  etc like you list above.  I posted  you may want to look at X's script PresetLister.js. in his xTools package. It seems to do what you want.

has anyone found a solution to this by any chance?

If "Current Tool Only" box is checked, then is it possible to get a list of the tool presets for the active tool only (example, all tool presets for the eraser tool only?)

A script the get all Preset manager objects like X's presetslister seem to be able to get all types of presets names.  So I would think X could get as which Tool preset name is for what tool. That information need to be in the tool preset object along with all the too'ls setting for the tool preset name.   I would imagine someone that know how to use Action manager code could get tool name You can show that tool in the Preset list.

the following code by r-bin will get a list of all tool presets, but still not a list only of the current tool - unless I am doing something wrong.

1. I make sure "Current Tool Only" box is checked

2. I select the eraser tool

3. I run this script, and it gives a list of ALL tool presets, not just for the eraser tool

Am I doing something wrong?

alert(getToolPresetNames().join("\n"));   

   

function getToolPresetNames() {     

    var ref = new ActionReference();     

    ref.putProperty(stringIDToTypeID("property"),

stringIDToTypeID("presetManager"));   

    ref.putEnumerated(charIDToTypeID("capp"),

charIDToTypeID("Ordn"), charIDToTypeID("Trgt"));     

    var appDesc = executeActionGet(ref);     

    var List = appDesc.getList(stringIDToTypeID

("presetManager"));     

    var presetNames = [];     

    var list = List.getObjectValue(7).getList

(charIDToTypeID("Nm  "));     

    var list2 = List.getObjectValue(7).getList

(stringIDToTypeID("class"));      

    for (var i = 0; i < list.count; i++) {     

        var str = list.getString(i);     

        var str2 = typeIDToStringID(list2.getClass(i));     

        presetNames.push([str,str2]);     

    }     

    return presetNames;     

};

That script seem to be like Xtools presetlister but just return tool presets not the all the other Preset the Preset manager manages.  I still believe that the tool for each preset is for can be retried with action manager code if one know how code it for  Adobe internal objects.  The Preset manager can show the Tool Icon for each tool Preset and Photoshop can list current tool only presets. So For sure Photoshop has that information.

Filter the str2 tool

alert(getToolPresetNames("paintbrushTool").join("\n"));   

   

function getToolPresetNames(tool) {     

    var ref = new ActionReference();     

    ref.putProperty(stringIDToTypeID("property"), stringIDToTypeID("presetManager"));   

    ref.putEnumerated(charIDToTypeID("capp"), charIDToTypeID("Ordn"), charIDToTypeID("Trgt"));     

    var appDesc = executeActionGet(ref);     

    var List = appDesc.getList(stringIDToTypeID("presetManager"));     

    var presetNames = [];     

    var list = List.getObjectValue(7).getList(charIDToTypeID("Nm  "));     

    var list2 = List.getObjectValue(7).getList(stringIDToTypeID("class"));      

    for (var i = 0; i < list.count; i++) {     

        var str = list.getString(i);     

        var str2 = typeIDToStringID(list2.getClass(i));     

       // presetNames.push([str,str2]);     

        if (str2==tool) presetNames.push([str,]);        

    }     

    return presetNames;

thanks guys, these work!!!

JJMack - it works!!! Finally, a solution It works PERFECTLY

I have a question - how can this script work on CC2014? I am still using that version, is there a way to do so?

        var str2 = typeIDToStringID(list2.getClass(i));    

       // presetNames.push([str,str2]);    

        if (str2==tool) presetNames.push([str,]);       

    }    

    return presetNames;    

};

var ref = new ActionReference();

ref.putProperty(stringIDToTypeID("property"), stringIDToTypeID("tool"));

ref.putEnumerated( charIDToTypeID("capp"), charIDToTypeID("Ordn"), charIDToTypeID("Trgt") );

I only hack at scripting.  I do not know  JavaScript or how to code Action manager code to retrieve information.  Scriptlistener records   executeAction steps.  Which easy to tune into JavaScript functions.  The  executeActionGet ref code I need to steal from r-bin and SuperMerlin  since Paul left and Mike passed.

I can read some JavaScript code see what is going on and may be able to modify it somewhat to do what I want to do.

Adobe make changes to Photoshop's ScriptigSupport plug-in from in some versions of Photoshop. So some version of Photoshop have bugs that may be fixed in newer Photoshop versions.  A newer versions may have new bugs so things that use to work  to no longer work. Many version have reported bugs that Adobe has acknowledged are bugs that Adobe does not care to fix.

Some newer Photoshop  feature may cause failures in some Photoshop Script errors in some Photoshop version for Adobe failed to update scripting support to handle a new feature or preferences. Some version of Photoshop scripting have support older versions do not have.

I do not know exactly what is or what is not supported in the different versions of Photoshop scripting or where all the bugs are.  I know I have had to add code to some of by scripts to program around Adobe Bugs in different version of Photoshop.  Old working scripts may fail in the next new Photoshop version.  In some script I had to check which version of Photoshop is running to see if if the scripting support need for the script will be available and exit with a message if  some needed function is not supported in the running Photoshop version.

There are issues in Photoshop scripting some you can program around.

Adobe replaced Photoshop's Scripting ScriptUI module with a new implementation that is not fully compatible with the old ScriptUI implementation so some old Photoshop scripts  dialog are no longer functional.

Adobe Development does not seem to do much regression testing from what I have seem.  Photoshop's quality is one a down hill path for its bugs population is expanding.

well I must thank you and SuperMerlin for making this work. I can see that other users have been looking for a solution to this for many years now. Finally, you have discovered it

I must ask however, can your script be modified to work in CC2014?

The code use to get tool presets seems to need CC 2018 or better.  I could be wrong for I no longer have CC 2015, CC 2015,5 and CC 2017 installed on my machine. I rejected those version of Photoshop. CC 2018 IMO is as good as CC 2017 where CC 2015 and CC 2015.5 have bugs the made then Bad  Photoshop versions because of ScriptUI and Scripting problem IMO.

A scripting problem add in CC 205.5 is one that Adobe wants from their BS replay. Seems that Adobe can  not tell the Metadata field info instructions is not metadata copyright  Its OK for Save for Web to strip and PS File into to set it to whatever  you want.  It not OK you a script to reset metadata Info because Adobe feel there may be a copyright information that Adobe Photoshop routinely strips.  BS is BS

Photoshop CC 2015.5: Script Metadata assigment error | Photoshop Family Customer Community 

I fixed Adobe garbage by adding garbage Adobe scripting has no problem restoring garbage Open Document and new document evenys will add garbage if it needs to get around Adobe BS.

if (app.activeDocument.info.instructions.indexOf("Garbage") == -1 ) app.activeDocument.info.instructions = app.activeDocument.info.instructions + "Garbage";  

X's Presetlisted does not fumnction in CC 2014 an empty window just opens

Try using

var list2 = List.getObjectValue(7).getList(stringIDToTypeID("title"));      

...

var str2 = list2.getString(i);

instead of

var list2 = List.getObjectValue(7).getList(stringIDToTypeID("class"));      

...

var str2 = typeIDToStringID(list2.getClass(i));

So you get a localized tool name.

Knowing it, you yourself can get the required ID for the class of the tool, if of course you need it.

The code below from r-bin is excellent - and it works in CC2014.

It gets a list of all tool presets of the "current" tool.

Let's say we want to get a list of only 'smudge' tool presets. How do we modify the code to do that? I have tried everything in my power to do so all day, and have not been able to solve it. What do we need to add to the code below so that it ONLY shows a list of 'smudge' tool presets?

You would need to change the script to get to preset for the tool you are interested in.  The beginning of the script retrieve the current tool.  Then gets that tools current presets.  You would get the tool preset instead for the tool you are interested in. You would set the var tool to the name of the tool you are interests in.  The function tool_class has the names of all tools. All Photoshop Tool Presets are retrieved  then line 21 uses that var tool to  extract that tool preset and push them into the results.

I tried the above code and if I have selected tool but that wasn't avialable in Tool Presets it alerted [], but when it was there, it alerted me array of all presets for this tool. So I can confirm you don't have to modify the code. It is working for me in CC 2019, until you mean something that I don't understand, so probably you want to change 21th line to:

for(i = 0; i < l1.count; i++) if (/Smudge Tool/.test(l1.getString(i))) result.push(l1.getString(i))
