I need to import 1 PSD (text layers) into multiple PSDs in 1 step (batch process) - how? Adobe have informed me it's not possible as of now. Surely there is a script I can create?

The most simple way is to use File - Place
this will insert your psd as a smart object with all your text layers.

Thanks Paul - this will only work on a file by file basis though. I need to import 2 isolated text layers into 20 or more files in 1 step.

Write an action to do the place and include this in your batch.
