Hi!

Dublicate Group - Popup, instead of dropdown menu, checkboxes or at least ctrl+multiple selectable destination documents.

I often need to dublicate groups to ~20 and it would save so much time if I could select all the destination documents at once.

Regards,
Maarja

Your best bet would be to automate something like this through scripting. Do you know javascript?

I can get my way around. I havent used scripting much, not sure where to start with it.

http://www.adobe.com/devnet/photoshop... and ps-scripts.com are good resources to get started. You could either have the script do a for loop to iterate over all open documents, or pop a dialog that lets you select a folder or files to duplicate to.
