Extendscript crash messes up photoshop

Post by david »

edit: this is with OS X and the latest 8 core Mac Pro.

I've had Photoshop get stuck in a modal dialog box several times. Hitting OK or Cancel doesn't close the box. I can select some Photoshop tools I can't normally select when in a modal dialog. I have to force quit Photoshop CS5 and lose my work.

I just noticed the last couple of times this has happened that ESTK CS5 had crashed in the background, even though I wasn't doing anything with it.

I am the only one at my workplace that uses ESTK and many users on otherwise identical machines have not had the modal dialog issue.

I've seen the similar problems on Mac and Windows in versions of ESTK since CS3.
It's an annoyance but one that I can't repeat so I live with it.

And, as far as losing work: "Save early; save often" :)
