    Flash Catalyst CS5.5 Crashes when importing photoshop document

    Cameron Pope

      I am trying to import a photoshop file authored in Photoshop CS5.1 into Flash Catalyst CS5.5, and Flash catalyst crashes every time part way through the import. A few specifics:


      Mac OS X 10.6.8

      Photoshop CS5.1

      Catalyst CS5.5


      I have searched this forum for suggestions, and I have tried a number of them:


      * Removing layers from the source psd file to find a culprit layer (Removing all but one layer still crashes)

      * Running Photoshop in 32 bit mode, dragging the layers to a new document and saving

      * Waving chicken bones over my laptop (Nobody really suggested this, for good reason -- it doesn't work)


      I have also replicated this crash on other Macintosh computers running the same Catalyst and Photoshop versions.


      I have included part of the crash dump below. I've highlighted the section that mentions how many crashes I've had. I am happy to provide .psd files to demonstrate the issue, and troubleshoot any way necessary.


      Thank you,
