    Automatic continuous number sequence in the text layer in multiple files

    Hello everyone, I have 600 PSD files in which need continuous numbering in defined text layer in the format xxx-xxx from xxx-001 in the first file to xxx-600 in last file. Is there any way to do it automatically? I am using Photoshop CC 2017


    I tried create data-driven graphics, but as I am new to this automate operations it was not successful. I just created many versions of the same file.



    Thanks in advance for your help

    Re: Automatic continuous number sequence in the text layer in multiple files

    Using data sets would be the way I'd suggest.

    Your best bet would be to search for tutorials on it as they are probably better than I could explain here.

    By all means if you get stuck with a tutorial then post back and we'll see if we can help.

    Data sets are pretty easy once you understand how they work.

    Regards.
    MrToM.

    Re: Automatic continuous number sequence in the text layer in multiple files

    I tried to find some tutorials, but they always are about creating sequence numbering in one file ( like numbered tickets or vouchers or so). So if you have idea how to set up it using data sets or some script or plug-in, let me know.

    Re: Automatic continuous number sequence in the text layer in multiple files

    Hmmm, ok, in that case it could possibly be done with a script but I'd need at least two example psd files and detailed specifications on what needs to happen to what and where etc etc.

    No guarantee but I'll see if I can make something work.

    Regards.
    MrToM.

    Re: Automatic continuous number sequence in the text layer in multiple files

    Thank you for your willingness MrToM.

    Here are attached two sample files fom my 600 file. They all are in one folder in alphabetical order (KE_B04-049 (1), KE_B04-049 (2), KE_B04-049 (3) ........
    All files has text layertab. KA/001 (under group Hlavičky) which contains text that need to be edited in this manner: in first file (KE_B04-049 (1)) have to be changed from tab. KA/001 to TAB.1, in second file (KE_B04-049 (2)) from tab. KA/001 to TAB. 2 etc.
    There are also files with other prefix (like KO_N11-060) or without serial number in brackets, so number for TAB.x can not be taken from file name.
    I hope I wrote it understandable :-)

    No worries.

    Unfortunately that was about all I could read of your post, the rest is illegible.

    Please remove all formatting from the contents and post again.

    Thank-you.

    Regards.
    MrToM.
