Impossible to costumize Contact sheet II ...

HI !

I want to costumize the contact sheet II :

- change the sheet format

- change the row / column ratio

- supress the title

which seems to be possible because the cases where those informations are can be modified... but I can not : I can erase the numbers but I can put down new ones.

By writing the numbers in Windows Notepad and right clic copy/paste (doesn't work either with the keyboard), I managed to put the new info. But then I have pop up error messages "incorrect numerical value for [name of the info - Row for example], the last correct numerical value will be use", then sometime my new number stays non the less, and sometime it is change for a random number of around 10 digits...

When I managed to put the numbers I want and press ok/enter, sometimes it works, sometime it doesn't. If I'm lucky, it works after I restart the PC, but I still got to deal with the number thing, with pop up error messages every time I change them...

I just update Photoshop ; I have Photoshop french version (or is it french canadian ?), so everything is translated at the best of my knowledge (no french forum or help available apparently...).

If you know javascript, you can create your own script for custom proof sheets. That's what I did when I was working, as the script provided in PS didn't do what I needed.

Moving to Photoshop Scripting.

You should be able to change the values in the dialog. They must also be logical For the paper size you set

If you can not have you tried resetting all tool and your Photoshop preferences.  Adobe Photoshop Scipting  ScriptUI is not working correctly on your machine.

That tutorial has many steps.  Are stating you can not use Photoshop's menu File>Automate>Contact Sheet II dialog that it is not changeable. Did you try using its reset button to see if it would reset the dialog and you tried to use it.  Have you tried resetting your Photoshop Preferences.  The ScriptUI dialog should work and look like this reset

I would not use Contact Sheet II to create the Mosaic.  I would not Crop the images or resize the I would simply use my Paste Image Roll script set resolution 150DPI paper width 20" tile size 1"x1" not rotate for best fit.  When the Open File Dialog opens I would select the 300 image files in the folder using Ctrl+A and click open. When the mosaic is created I would look at the images and reposition any image content where the virtual 1:1 centered corp composition needs to be improved. Then define the pattern.

I have got the exact same problem with the Photoshop CC 2020 update. I cannot set the columns in contactsheet II (I can set rows though). I am new to Photoshop and downloaded the Belgium version (Dutch) 2 weeks ago. I did not change any settings. I am following a Photoshop course, but the teacher could not help me either. Is this a bug? I am using Windows 10 Home version 1903.
