Opening Collage Project Crashes PSE

Dec 10, 2010 5:54 AM

Background:

OS X

PSE 9

 

When I click on Create>Collage I get a dialog to chose a size.

Alongside the size column is a theme column but after selecting a size there is nothing in the theme column.

 

Clicking Ok causes PSE to crash.

 

I get the same response trying to create a calendar.

Nothing in the theme column, a couple of images in the preview column. Select one of them, click ok and the app crashes.

 

 

Any suggestions as to what might be the cause of the problem?

 

Thanks.

    Are you able to click on the advanced options button in collage?

    After selecting your size and clicking OK the next dialog should offer this choice.

    Just FYI, you're going to find other things in PSE that don't work right from a standard account. I don't know why adobe does this, but PSE is definitely designed to run from an admin account.

    I am glad I found this thread. I ran into this problem too with calendars and Content in the editor. I run workshops for kids, have a student account setup. The student account would crash when we went to the Create Section and did not show any of the content in the editor. I knew this had to be a permission problem since I could run the program fine in admin mode. When I did a "quick chat" with Adobe they could not help me and the phone line was a 45 minute wait! Yikes!! So, I will try this suggestion and hopefully it will work for me.

     

    So, it seems that maybe after I change the permissions I should create new user accounts?
