Thread: ?? re sorting actions in PSE11- can it be done?

    Question ?? re sorting actions in PSE11- can it be done?

    Please tell me there is a way to sort actions installed in PSE11. Please?

    Ease of installing and using actions was the reason I decided to go from my beloved PSE10 to 11. However, I'm finding that once installed, they are not in alphabetically order....gnashing of teeth! I also found that with some older actions, I had to add each one on its own so that made even more on that list.

    Is the ability to sort alphabetically something that can be done out in the PSE main folder. I've found nothing on this on the web and find it hard to believe I'm the only one who likes things sorted alphabetically. Or am I?!?!?!

    I don't think so (and you are not alone!). I have seen other inquiries with no satisfactory answer. I would also like to group actions once installed, into a nice neat folder (like, "all b&w actions") but haven't seen anything so far indicating it's possible. I would love to be told that there is a way!

    I can imagine your frustration Maureen! I have my Photoshop CS actions all sorted and grouped by category. But that's not much help to you! Hope there is an answer.

    Now that I have a bit more familiarity with 11 - nothing like a week of learning the PSE tools and tweaking LR to get ease in use - I may (!!!) get all my .atn files in one place(folder) and delete the actions I installed (ugh) and start all over. I see that it doesn't matter where you store the .atn files, unlike in earlier versions, but if they are alphabetical in that folder, I'll see if they go into PSE in order. If nothing else, it's a good time for clearing out ones i really haven't used or may no longer find intersting.

    And why didn't I use some? because it was so frickin' hard to install them in the older versions!
