The CEP Parameter Error

The Black Out Bug originates from a Legacy error with the Adobe CEP core, where sometimes elements are not correctly refreshed and mapped via scripting. This effects both Photoshop and Illustrator.

IMPORTANT: In Illustrator this error is Fatal and you must close and reopen the application - in Photoshop Export Kit can recover from this error.

Testing the PSD

Use Layers views to see the code translation of each layer, or use Exports view to see the output of the document. This bug does not always happen, so you may not encounter it – if you do the quick fix is to use a Safe Black Color.


Using Layers View

Select any shape element in the PSD, then select your desired view to see the code render of your shape.
