I'm working with some fairly large psb files and when ever I try to save out a jpeg or convert a layer to a smart object I get a scroll bar with the following message:

"completing pending document save operations"

This can take between 15 and 30 mins to complete before the jpeg or smart object is saved. Does anyone know why I get this message and what is Photoshop actually doing? Is there any way of stopping doing this or speeding it up?

I suspect you are saving the containing psb – while that save has not been completed the saving of a Smart Object (edit: or a jpg-copy) naturally could not succeed. 

Can you post meaningful screenshots?

If you included the Save Progess indication that might have been clear from the screenshot.

What are the containing document’s and the Smart Object’s pixel dimensions and bit depth?

How long does saving the containing document itself take?

I'm also experiencing the same error message every time I convert a layer to a smart object. It take like you , several minutes. I haven't timed it precisely, but it easily 5 minutes or more. And please don't anybody suggest that PS is running shot of memory. The PC has 128 GB installed and finctioning fine in every other app, including CP1 and Davinci Resolve. It laso has 50 of that memory dedicated to PS. that right. 64 GB reserved just for PS.

Has anyone found a solution for this error?
