Smart object layers pixels can not be modified. They can only be acted on with smart filters and adjustment layers. They are locked note the lock icons in the layers palette.

Users here do not work for adobe as for the manual here Photoshop Help | Photoshop User Guide

It would be impossible to keep a paper manual up to data and I would not think any one online guide would cover all versions of Photoshop and be completely up to date

I was referred to this "fix" as a solution to my problem

Which didn't fix it.

ALL versions of CC, when I use Content Aware fill I get Cannot Complete Program error

This is after a wipe & fresh Windows, new video card, new hard drive & memory .

Oddly , Photoshop CS6 is ok.

I was told "problem is escalated and will be resolved in 24 hours" , that was a week or so ago.

Do you have another layer on top covering the shape layer? This can be confusing.
