Search Assets with a text file


Is there anyway to search a catalog with a list of filenames from a text document? I would like to loop a search to gather assets from a list and put them in a gallery.

I built and applescript application that we used to gather assets but applescript can’t be used with 2016. Is writing an app in java my only option now or is there a built in way to run a batch?


Hi FlameCoder,

That sounds like something that would best be handled through Portfolio’s API and we have a separate resource over at Extensis Labs to provide Portfolio Developer support. The API documentation, code samples and other resources are available as well as a forum to post specific questions for the dev team. Please note that posting requires registration that is separate from the Extensis Forums.


This is an interesting request. I would love to talk with you more about this.
