Speed Kills: advanced tips > SAVING YOUR ACTIONS AS PRINTABLE TEXT FILES

SAVING YOUR ACTIONS AS PRINTABLE TEXT FILES

This is a totally undocumented actions tip, and if you need it, it's a real lifesaver. Once you've created an action, you can actually save a text document with all the action steps so you can have a printed hard copy of your action. Here's how: In the Actions palette, click on the Action set containing the action that you want to save as a text document. Hold Option-Command (PC: Alt-Control) and from the Actions palette's pop-down menu, choose Save Actions. When the Save dialog appears, you'll notice that the three-letter file extension is .txt (indicating it's a text file) rather than .atn (which is the Photoshop action format). Click OK and you've got a text file you can open in any word processor to print out your steps.
