Problem: I can make text area sized by the selection size by converting the selection to work path and making text area out of it.

However, when recording action, it will just record the specific size of that exact selection, not the action generally. So if try use the action on some selection, the text area won't be the size of that, but will be the size of the selection I recorded the action with.

Is there any way to make simple action: "create text area that is the size of the selection"?

  • Hello and welcome to GDSE! Sorry that I'm late but let me clear that actions are very limited when it comes to automation! you probably should using combination of action + scripts or only scripts if you want to achieve diversity on your results! – Mr.Online Aug 12 at 5:21
