Is there a simple way to copy all text in PSD file?

I work with PSD layouts with many separate text layers and they often contain only one word.

Not without scripting.

I've never used it, but a quick Google search finds THIS SCRIPT which claims to be able to export all text layers to a text file.


Just wanted to add some detail to @scott's answer based on my tests:

The following snippets are of the same file, which has a single line of text. My actual task was a colleague's 400mb cs6 file with various layer/folder styles, which omgmog warns us of ahead of time. Brahmus did the job, and though the extra detail would have been welcome, it was super easy to simplify in Sublime.

I'm using PS CS5.5 Mac.



[BEGIN /my text layer ]
my text layer
[END /my text layer ]



"This might not work in Adobe Photoshop CS6."
