I am very excited to use the PageToPSLayersV7.zip script created by Rob Day to transfer Indesign files into Photoshop with layers, but am having problems and wonder if anyone else has solved this...


Rob says you need to make sure your CS5 Photoshop version is 12.0.4 or higher so I updated to the latest release I could find for my MacOS (10.13.6) so I updated to 12.0.5 by following this link:



*note to those who try to do this, you first have to downgrade your Java by following this link:



After updating my Photoshop, I tried using Rob's script and it "locked" at this step


executeAction( cTID('Plc '), placeAction, DialogModes.NO );


In the debug window, it said that this was a "general Photoshop error and my version of Photohop may not support this functionality."


Then I remembered I hadn't restored my Javascript to the latest revision so I upgraded it and got the same result.


According to Rob's notes for using the script, everything should work just fine with this revision and I haven't seen this problem reported elsewhere.  I am not a scripting expert at all, so any help (Rob??) would be appreciated.
