As stated in the title I'm having issues using the Export Layer to File function in PS. I've tired closing and reopen the program, closing the program and restart my computer, downgardaing to lower versions of PS and finally streight up uninstall PS and CC desktop completely from computer and reinstalling. Nothing has worked and I've pretty much wasted one of my few free days troubleshooting rather then doing what I wanted to do. I am very fustrated as I have never had this problem before in all the months I've been using PS. I have made no special update on my computer I can think of that would trigger such an odd error and online search for answers have yeild nothing. Help?

 

I'm on Windows 10.

I did try resetting the preferences but that didn't work. What did work was setting PS to run only from my dedicated graphic cards via the graphic cards own setting (not through PS). It was the one thing I hadn't thought of trying in my fustration and desperation. In short, I was able to resolve the issue (hopefully permanently) on my own in the end. Feel free to close out this topic.

Hi. Please give us more specifics on this. Can you screenshot what things look like, when you try to use Export Layer to File? Is it grayed out? Is it giving you an error? I'm afraid it's really hard to try to troubleshoot, with just the info above.

You didn't mention resetting preferences?
