Issues with duplicating a document for an action

I have downloaded the newest version of photoshop and when doing so I am now having issues with making an action. After I have worked on a photo and need to batch save for a customer either for printing or for social media I go to make an action to do this all at once. I start by creating an action then going to file duplicate when I did this in the past in the actions panel it would show the name of the action and then under that it would say "Duplicate first doument" and I could continue creating the action until I needed it to stop. Now when I do this instead of the normal "Duplicate first document" it now says "Duplicate document 718" the number on the end always changes. After the action is completed I went to try and do a batch run and instead of duplicating individual photos it duplicates the first one over and over for as many times as there are photos that should have been duplicated. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong but would like to get it fixed.

As long as you don't change the name, it should just record Duplicate first document as you expect. Before resetting preferences, it might be prudent to backup all custom actions and other presets etc.

 

Other options include:

 

* Rather than recording, use the action panel menu to "Insert menu command" and then select the Image > Duplicate command.

 

* Dupe the command that works in an existing action, then drag the duped step out of the original action to the new action.
