Export layers to files stopped working after last update. opening a dialogue: The command "Delete" is not currently available.
This script is crucial for my work flow. Any suggestions?
I've tried using the "new" export as.. and quick export, but these currently cannot be recorded in the actions panel.

Adobe last update was ACR 9.9 and on my windows system export layers to files still works in CC 2017. However all older version of Photoshop thougn ACR 9.9 seems to be installed and working. The Creative Cloud Desktop reports the the update failed the the download was bad whicj will also happen when you try yhe retry button. Adobe seems to have some installer problem in the creative desktop application. Happens on both of my machines.
I'm on mac
I rely on this export layers to files function for making catalogues (I don't want the exported elements to be cropped but to remain in position on the canvas size).
The export failed on two different Macs running CC 2018, and failed on a third Mac running CC 2017.
I finally got the export layers to files to work on a fourth Mac running CC 2015.
I wish Adobe would stop breaking really useful bits of Photoshop.

Not using the feature much, but encountering exactly this issue in 2019. At least for me the script worked when my document was flat (lots of boring frames for a technical test...), but encountered the Delete Unavailable issue as it was stripping down the non-target layers and encountered a layer group. Not sure if the way Photoshop handles deletion of groups changed since the script was written, but pulling all grouped layers out to the top level, deleting the groups, and re-running the export seems to work. Awkward, certainly, but probably far faster than other manual aternatives involving selecting/showing layers one at a time for comping or manual saves.
I am using 21.1.1 version of Photoshop on Mac 10.15.4 Sierra. It doesn't work at all. I have no groups, but probably smart objects? Who doesn't use smart objects? I am trying to export layers to png and I also tried exporting to .psd.
Encountering this issue in 2020. 'Export layers to files' is stripping the layers, opening a dialogue: The command "Delete" is not currently available, and won't export jpegs to artboard size, but instead adds blank space around the board. Did anyone have luck with this?
I'm having the same issue but don't see any solutions preseneted from Adobe. I am on CC2021. Has anyone found a solution?
this is still broken... what am I paying for
Does this fail on all document types or only with certain artboards and layer nesting? Do you have "Visible Layers Only" checked or unchecked? Does it matter if you try unchecked or checked? Only with artboards?
If you could upload a sample image that fails.
I found that it works with .jpg, but not with PNG...it may also be that visible groups with no visible layers may trigger the fail as well. I haven't tested that extensively, but when I switched from png (failed) to jpg, it worked.
same problem here... no clue
Can you post a set of files that fails for you? (via dropbox/CC files)
