I have a Script to bulk replace the SmartObject in the PSD file. It worked good in CC2015 but when I update my Photoshop Version, it doesn't work any more. I share here the part of that script which is noticed "error" by Photoshop. Anyone can help me?

 

// genMockup - gen mockup
///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
function genMockup(progressWindow, mockupFile, imagesFiles, totalFiles) {

  if (!isRuning) {
    return;
  }
  var mockupFileName = getFileName(mockupFile.fsName);
  var doc = open(mockupFile);
  // app.activeDocument.activeLayer=app.activeDocument.layers.itemByName("Design");  
  var activeDocument = app.activeDocument;
  var theActiveLayer = activeDocument.activeLayer;
  if (theActiveLayer.kind != "LayerKind.SMARTOBJECT") {
    alert ("selected layer is not a smart object");
    return;
  }

  for (var i = 0, len = imagesFiles.length; i < len; i++) {
    var imageFileName = getFileName(imagesFiles[i].fsName);
    imageFileName = imageFileName.replace('-message-card-001', '');

    var theNewName = imageFileName + '-' + mockupFileName;
    var outputFilePath = txtOutputPath.text + '/' + theNewName + '.jpg';
    if (!isFileExisted(outputFilePath)) {
      theActiveLayer = replaceDesign(outputFilePath, activeDocument, imagesFiles[i]);
      if (cbxPreview.value) {
        // app.refresh();
        waitForRedraw();
      }
    }

What is the error you get which statement generates the error how about a clue. 

 

My batch mockup script run without error in 2021 if the files involved are correct.  Its free you can look at the code.  It can populate a collection of mockup template PSD  with a collection of replacement designs  using replace content or used Edit Object and fitting in the replacements.  You will need to use the help button to get the details of mockup template design and how to run the script.

Not sure if this is the same issue but I am working with BatchUpdateSmartObject.jsx script. Line 597 fails with a generic error. This is the line containing activeDocument.saveAs. I got the variable (saveFile) for the document save path and I ended up with a strange looking path. 

 

~/Downloads/U1XzLHd4VvI /Users/[MY USER NAME]/Downloads/...

 

I can easily trim this off but it still looks odd to me. I wonder if it has something to do with Rosetta emulation or with the M1 mac. I tried with the M1 beta for photoshop but still resulted in the same error. I can't recall if this is the normal looking docPath or not.

 

I resoled the issue by fixing the path.

I do not have access to a mac even and none m1. The Path should be what you set in the scripts dialog.

 

~/Downloads/U1XzLHd4VvI /Users/[MY USER NAME]/Downloads/...

 

Look strange for sure. Perhaps you used the browse  folder buttone in the script's dialog. And the system select folder dialog is returning that strang  path  in Photshop M1 was that displayed in the dialog?  I think that may be an issue in PS or Mac OS

After more digging it seems like:

1. ~/Downloads/U1XzLHd4VvI - this is the file path

2. /Users/[MY USER NAME]/Downloads/... - this is the PSD path not sure why its passing both through saveFile

I tried adding text into the dialogs instead of using the browse and it still results in the same issue. 

I just did this for now - saveFile.split(' ')[0]; and it works. Not ideal but if anyone else has a better solution that would help.

Did you install  my scripts into Photoshop folder Presets\Scripts  ?? or are you running them from your  downloads ?

Good thought. I was running them from the Downloads folder but moved them to the Presets\Scripts but it still outputs the two paths.

 

This seems to be a big sur, M1, photoshop, or an issue with my computer because I had high sierra before I upgraded and the script was working just fine. I wonder if anyone is having this issue.

Is there a way to clear out the cached settings of the script? Everytime I load the script it recalls the last paths I used so I figure its caching is somewhere.

On windows I save settings in User ID Application Date Roaming in a folder  "JJMack's Scrripts"  on my  machine fo ne its C:\Users\jjmac\AppData\Roaming\JJMack's Scripts

You can delete  it. However, the scripts will rebuild it.   Adobe I believe will support the M1 some time this year.  I found the M1 heavy when I was in the US Army.

Found it here:

/Users/[USERNAME]/Application\ Data/JJMack\'s\ Scripts

 

I knew I was going to deal with issues getting the M1 yours may have been a bit more reliable.

Nah, I just copied that from the terminal. Its just escaping the spaces. Anyway I knew there would be issues. I can get around them with a simple workaround for now. Were essentially on a public beta OS and PS now.
