Batch processing glitch - after updating to the latest version Photoshop CC 2018

An action for resizing images and setting the resolution to 72 doesn't work anymore for batches. If I close all images and try to do a batch process, it will tell me that

The command “Image Size” is not currently available.

And whatever other commands I've used aren't available.

If I have an image open while using Automate > Batch, it will only process that one image.

So either way I can't batch process anymore. Help please!

I've figured this out! Because it's batches I'm trying to process, I needed to include 'open' as the first item in the action. So basically I start with nothing selected or open, click record, go to > open and select any image and go from there. Seems so logical now, but when using an action on individual images that's not necessary, that's why I didn't include it in the action. Life can go on, hurray!!

Message "command [whatever] is not currently available" is displayed when the action attempts to execute a command that is "greyed out" at the moment.

I think that there is no file open on which to apply this command: tha batch command settings and action commands are wrong or in wrong order. Please check the settings and the sequence of commands of the batch and of the action.

Hello, could you post a screenshot with the action panel (not in button mode) showing the action set and the action?
