Basically, the title says it all. When I have a "Group" of Vector Smart Objects and I attempt to change the pixel dimensions using the dialog boxes in the menu bar during Transform Mode, Photoshop crashes. To be exact with a step-by-step:
1. Select layer of a group (folder) of 2 or more Vector Smart Objects. 2. Press [Control][T] to enter Transform Mode. 3. Select the "chain-link" between the "width" and "height" dialog boxes. 4. Right-Click the "width" or "height" dialog box to change to "pixels". 5. Highlight the numerical portion of the pixel dimension (to retain the "px"). 6. Type in a numerical value for the desired pixels.
Immediately upon typing a number, Photoshop stops and, after a brief moment, pops up a window which says:
"An unexpected and unrecoverable problem has occurred. Photoshop will now exit."
The hardware that CS6 is installed is a "new" MacBook Pro 15" OSX 10.7.5, 2.6 GHz, 8GB RAM, 1GB video. This is a work computer provided by my employer which has other security and networking software installed and running that I cannot adjust or bypass, but it wouldn't make sense for any of this to interfere with a Photoshop transformation.
This is also the same exact procedure for resizing that I have used on different computers within CS3 and CS4, which never had a problem. Using CS6, this problem only occurs with a "Group" of Vector Smart Objects and does not crash when resizing single Vector Smart Objects using the pixel dimension dialog boxes. This is also the only instance that I am aware that causes my Photoshop CS6 to crash.
I honestly don't know if this is an actual Photoshop problem or a deficiency of this MacBook. When Photoshop closes, it asks if I want to send an error report (which I always do), but to Apple and not Adobe. However, after months of sending error reports to Apple with no response or resolution, it's time to question Adobe about the problem.
