  4. Hi,

    When i'm using Action panel and I click on the play icon, the action doesn't play alone : I need to accept every adjustment that are made in the action..

    Do you know how can I restore the original Action panel so the action can run alone without my agreement ?

    Thanks !

  5. Do you know how I can load an action that is not a zxp file into extension manager? I want everything to go through extension manager.

    1. You have to make the ZXP yourself with Adobe Exchange Packager that you can download at after logging in. If you just want it to show up in your Actions panel menu, then you can copy it to your Photoshop/Presets/Actions folder but it won't show up in Adobe Extension Manager.

    Thank you,
