I purchased Elements 11 and then downloaded a set of free actions. Now the quick and guided areas have disappeared. The quided area on the right is nothing but a big black area. Any ideas on where they have gone and how can I get them back?
I believe your swf files for quick and guided edits have been corrupted. The best way is to reinstall the product. Before installing again, make sure following folder and files have been deleted.
C:\ProgramData\Adobe\Photoshop Elements\11.0\Locale\<your locale>\Workflow Panels\ for windows and /Library/Application Support/Adobe/Photoshop Elements/11.0/Locale/<your locale>/Workflow Panels/ for Mac
