Macro Recorder: Cannot record "Create fill"

Recommended Posts

I have started to play around with macros and wanted to create a macro that mimics and ND filter. I.e. add a new Fill Layer, and then add a Gradient fill.

 

But I get an error message saying that the Macro Recorder cannot record this.

 

Maybe I am missing something (I hope so!)

 

Any ideas / help very welcome.

 

Thanks!

The macro function is new there is a lot of stuff it cant do as yet


Due to the ongoing Brexit negotiations, punctuation, spelling and grammar will be used sparingly until further notice.

Well, let's hope they enable this in the next release then. Do you have any good shortcuts / workarounds for this? I find it quite annoying that there are so many clicks/steps to create a gradient filter with 100% transparent 50% grey at one end and 100% black at the other, with blend mode soft light.

While waiting for ... I made my one ND-gradients

 

Method

 

1. Create the ND-gradient

 

File > New  

- with transparent background

- resolution as needed

- apply an ND-gradient black or gray to transparent as needed.

- save as PNG-file

 

2. Import via macro recording

 

File > Place

- the PNG-file on top of the current image

- change the blend mode to "soft light" or whatever is suitable
