Photoshop stops responding when creating a 11x8.5 collage

I've been using Adobe Photoshop Elements 11 for a couple of months to create 11x8.5 photo collage's as part of my digital scrapbook. Yesterday, when I tried to create a new collage the program stopped responding and forced me to close it. It will only do this with an 11x8.5, it's not a problem for any other size, unfortunetly the rest of my pages are 11x8.5 so I really need to be able to use this size! What could possibly be causing this?

    Go to the editor preferences and click this button, then restart the editor:

    If that doesn't do it, there's not a thing you can do with a collage in Create that you can't do with a blank file in the editor and the graphics panel.

    Generally, if you plan to print the result, 300 ppi is considered ideal. For images that you will only see on-screen, you can go as low as 72 ppi.

    I have this same problem and the suggestion didn't help me.  Does anyone know of a solution?


    I've tried it in both the Organizer and Editor interfaces and tried selecting and de-selecting the box indicating "Autofill with Selected Images". 


    8.50 x 11.00 works fine, but 11.00 x 8.50 - crashes every time.


    "Adobe Photoshop Elemets 11 has stopped working.  A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available."


    Would love to find a solution.

    Just bumping this thread to see if anyone might have a solution or an idea I can try.  I really need to make this work somehow.
