i am trying to create an action in Photoshop CC 2018 that will allow me to batch resize a piece of text to a specific spot on the canvas.
I have my PSD with all of my necessary layers in, i have then used variable data to spit out multiple PSD's with my desired text changes, i am now trying to make each piece of text (regardless of size) scale to the same position and size.
I am able to get the action to work on the document i am working on but as soon as i run the action across a batch of files it seems to completely ignore the transform x/y that i have specified. i have tried it with.
- The text box
- Converting to a smart object
- Converting to a shape
All produce the same effect, ultimately all i am wanting to do is say Here's a rectangle area, fit this layer to said area but, it seems like such a basic function that is missing from PS and i cant for the life of me figure it out, First time posting on stack exchange, sorry if the formatting of this article is poor,thanks in advance.
