Is there a simple way to copy all text in PSD file?

I work with PSD layouts with many separate text layers and they often contain only one word.

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

Is that a programming question ? Please have a look at the FAQ. – Denys Séguret Jul 14 '12 at 16:36
From one point it's "software tools commonly used by programmers". Because HTML/CSS/JS technologist uses it. From another point - if there is a simple way to programmatically get it - it will be used. – Rustam Jul 14 '12 at 16:46

You can select all the 'type' layers from your layers pane, using Cmd/Ctrl+click (depending on whether you have a Mac or Windows machine), or, if they're adjacent, Shift+click, then use Photoshop's Edit > Copy to copy the layers.
