Workshop

The benefits of understanding both batch processing and sharing files will surely be obvious by now, so use the Q&A and quiz that follow to test your memory on the topics covered in this busy hour. Use the exercises simply to put some of the learning to practical use when you have a little time. They are not guided exercises, so do them at your leisure.

Q&A

Q1:I’m trying to share a custom batch processing script named Thumbnail Batch from my Commands menu, but I can’t find the file. Where is it?
A1: Scripts are saved by default in the User Configuration folder under the Commands folder. You can also search your system for the file, Thumbnail Batch.jsf. For Windows XP users, however, the User Configuration folder is stored under the Application Data folder, which is a hidden folder and may not turn up in the search.
Q2:I have a number of files open that I want to process. How can I select them in the Batch dialog after I’ve selected Batch Process from the File menu?
A2: Simply make sure the Current Open Files box is checked. This will batch process all currently open files. It is not necessary to add files from the Project Log or your hard drive to continue.
Q3:I want to save some styles so that they’re available from the Pop-up Menu Editor dialog as backgrounds for image style pop-up menus. Where would I put them in my configuration folders?
A3: Simply select your styles in the Styles panel using Shift+click. Then select Export Styles from the Styles panel in the Options menu. Save the Style file under the Nav Bar folder in your User Configuration folder. Now it will be available in the Pop-up Menu Editor dialog when you add the Pop-up Menu behavior to a slice or hotspot.
