Rename history state by script
I have the issue that when I double click the name of a history state, it becomes editable for a split second and then I can't type a new name. I don't know where this comes from and decided to write a little script that does this for me. But the script doesn't change the name either.
Maybe somebody can point me in the right direction here.
Here's the script:
#target photoshop var myDoc = app.activeDocument.name; var currentHistoryStepName = app.activeDocument.activeHistoryState; // alert( currentHistoryStepName ); var historyStateNameOnly = currentHistoryStepName.name.replace("HistoryState ", ""); // alert( historyStateNameOnly ); var pmt = prompt ('Type a new history state name', historyStateNameOnly, 'Rename History State'); alert( pmt ); app.activeDocument.activeHistoryState.name = pmt;
It all works well, I get the right name as an alert but the last line does not change the history step name. Maybe someone could quickly test this on a setup where they can rename the history state name by double clicking. Then I know it's because of my base problem that renaming it this way does not work for me.
