When using the automate batch function and selecting to run on open files, give us a dropdown or menu of open file names. Once "Opened Files" is selected as the source, there is all that blank real estate in the window for a list of opened files in the source box. Using this I can select which ones I want to run the batch on. Or even better, a "select all" button and then I can deselect the few I don't want to run on.

Example: Very often I'll be working on two or three working files and then need to run a batch on many files that will end up open as well. I hate having to close them all down then run to batch that opens them back up. Or, having to close my two or three working files and running the batch on opened files then reopening the working files afterward forfeiting my history states. I just want to deselect the working files in the batch and be on my way.
