Generative Fill creates unwanted artifacts

I use Generative Fill on a daily basis and marvel its ability to fill the area covered by the removed object, and is almost, flawles when working on landscapes such as placing grass in bare spots, or removing unwanted elements. However there are frustrating exceptions that Adobe support has worked on with me to no avail. For example, using the Lasso tool to remove an object in a room(which it does beautifully), except it replaces the removed object with an artifact object which not only doesnt look real, but in trying to remove it, it is replaced by an equally unreal substitute artifact object. Also in alternatively using the remove tool it replaces another artifact.

I would like to suggest that Adobe generate a specific phrase or command that instructs GF not to replace a removed object with an artifact.


Attached are two images, one with a stancheon and rope, and the second edited in GF with the stancheon and rope beautifully removed, but with an unwanted artifact sitting in the foreground on the floor. I and Adobe Support were unable to remove the artifact other than for it to be replaced with yet another artifact.

Its a great tool, but some program  adjustments would be so helpful. Thanks.
