The command "Feather" is not currently available

Jul 26, 2010 8:28 PM

Using PS CS5 Extended on 64-bit Windows

Using the default vignette action

have an 8-bit image in RGB color space

have a rectangular section approximately 50 pixels inside of the image borders.


Attempt to use the default vignette action and get the following error:   The command "Feather" is not currently available  The reason it's unavailable is that the selection has disappeared.    I can't figure out WHY the selection is disappearing on me.   I've used this action for YEARS and never seen this behavior.  It's doing the same thing in both 32-bit PS and 64-bit PS.

 

I assume I've fat-fingered some setting or other but, for the life of me, can't figure out what it could be.

 

Sure could use some help sorting this out.  Thanks.

    I just tried it and it worked for me in the condition you described.

     

    When you expand the action via the little arrow to the left of the action name, does it look exactly like this, including the little checkmarks and dialog boxes to the left?

    If not, you'll probably want to reload the actions.  From Adobe Help:

    Restore actions to the default set

    1. Choose Reset Actions from the Actions panel menu.
    2. Click OK to replace the current actions in the Actions panel with the default set, or click Append to add the set of default actions to the current actions in the Actions panel.

     

    Hope this helps.

    ... but if you replace with defaults, make sure you save out any of your own actions (in a set or sets) so they can be recovered!

    function(){return A.apply(null,[this].concat($A(arguments)))}

    ...or click Append to add the set of default actions to the current actions in the Actions panel.

    Happy to help.

     

    Something under the covers of one of the action steps must have gotten changed.  Not sure how, but I'm glad you got it working.
