Photoshop: Active document changes on Save for Web

Open multiple PSD files from Bridge (in my case, applying a batch script operation.)

The active document is the last one opened- the last filename in the batch. (Let's say, 001.psd, 002.psd, 003.psd, 004.psd)

004.psd would be frontmost once all are opened. All files have unsaved changes from the batch operation.

Select 001.psd, save, then open Save for Web

The active document changes behind the SFW window, to 004.psd.

This makes it difficult to keep track of which has been saved via SFW and which one to close.

Well, its happening with other operations too. Just used Canvas Size and the active document switched to the last opened from the one that I was working on. Ugh.

Any word on this? 100% reproducible, happens with every batch of files.

Hi David, are using tabbed documents or floating documents, and does it make a difference?

Floating documents, just tested with tabs and it doesn't happen there.
