Getting some ‘console is not defined‘ errors in Firefox 2 with Firebug 1.2.0? Don’t worry, as it turns out that’s by design. The trick is to issue a window.loadFirebugConsole(); in your Javascript before using the console. Thanks for mentioning it on the list, John! 🙂

JSXColleague Johan asked whether someone could knock up a script which exports all text layers from a Photoshop document to a text file. Since I’ve scripted Photoshop before (heck, I even steered Photoshop from within C#) it was no biggie for me to knock up a simple script, which I dubbed TextExport
