Generator Message in PS
« on: May 22, 2018, 10:07:32 AM »

Sometimes I get the attached message. What does it mean and how to prevent it recurring. When I uncheck it nothing seems to happen. I just keep working in PS.

Solution 1
Photoshop keeps a log of Generator activites. The folder where this log is stored may not yet be created and it's creation may be prevented by permissions or other factors.

Manually create this folder so that Photoshop may be able to create the necessary log files. Create a folder named "Adobe Photoshop [Version]" (ie "Adobe Photoshop CC 2017") in the following location:

Windows: C:\Users\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\
Mac OS: /Users/[Your User Name]/Library/Logs/Adobe/
Note: You have to show default hidden folder

Solution 2
Remove the Reflow generator plug-in, which is installed by Edge Reflow.

To remove this plug-in, go to the below location and drag the reflow-generate plug-in out of the Plug-ins folder:

Windows: C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CC 2015\Plug-ins\Generator

Mac OS: Applications\Adobe Photoshop CC 2015\Plug-ins\Generator
