Join Julieanne Kost to discover how to record and play back a single-step action to help boost productivity by quickly executing a command.
- [Instructor] We're going to begin automating our workflow…by creating several single step actions.…Single step actions will execute a single command.…So, unlike maybe a keyboard shortcut,…like command N to bring up the new dialogue box,…an action not only brings up the dialogue box,…but it can also create the new document…at whatever size you record.…So, on the actions panel, let's start…by creating a new set.…We can do that by selecting it…from the drop down menu here, or…there's an icon here of a folder.…
We can create our new set that way.…I'm going to call this "Single Step"…for our single step actions.…And then, we'll create our first action.…Again, we can use the fly out menu here…and choose New Action, but I think it's easier…just to click at the bottom of the Actions panel.…I'm going to name this New Doc,…and I want it to be eight by eight inches,…and I want it to be in AdobeRGB.…I'm going to put it in that Single Step,…and if I want to I can assign a function key,…which is a keyboard shortcut.…
I'll go ahead and choose F8 and shift.…
