I have seen a few people asking if it was possible to remove the “copy” mark from duplicated layers. Although most people probably know how to do this, this is for the people that don’t.

Note : As far as I know, this only works on Photoshop CS5

How To :

First step : Open Photoshop and select the drop down menu on the side of the layers panel.

Second step : Select Panel Options from the menu.

Third step : Deselect the box marked : “Add copy to copied layers and groups”.

I may be the only person who gets annoyed by the “copy” mark but I thought I would share just in case.

In the hope that this helped someone.

I have CS3 and I have an extension that removes “copy” from all layers. There is no other way around it until you get CS5 . Great post! Many people will enjoy this!

Nice tip, xstortionist! Can you tell me what is the name of that extension? thanks!

Awesome Tip for 5 users!

Now if Adobe would just use universal naming conventions when making a duplicate layer – I wouldn’t have to re-do all my actions to accommodate non-english users!

Other languages don’s use the name ‘Layer 1” some use “Copia 1” or something other related to the language version.

None of my English Actions work properly in French, German . . . etc. etc.

All New layers have to be renamed accordingly while preparing the action.

Bummer!

Thanks for the Tip – I’ll probably not upgrade to CS5 because of the bugginess and – all I really want is replace background when removing an image.

I can do that myself!

All of my actions works in all languages.

It is pretty easy – just right click the layer – select Duplicate layer and a window pops up where You name it for example “my duplicate”. It will duplicate and name the layer in all languages to “my duplicate”. ;)

Same with creating new layers – You have to hit Ctrl+Shift+N to create new layer with possibility of naming it before it is created. That is really easy sollution for any ATN Action.

Cheers

Here’s the link to the extension. I can’t use the newest version of photoshop because I’m on PowerPC Processor. But I’m glad that I found this extension to help ease the pain of removing “copy” from every duplicated layer. I hope you all enjoy! http://ps-scripts.com/bb/viewtopic.php?p=13467

i double clicked on the mxp file, but windows cannot find a suitable program to open it with… :(
