The plugin is stuck on loading screen (CC2014 only)

CSS Hat 2 loading

This issue can happen if you just upgraded your Photoshop to a new mayor version (like to CC2015 from CC2014). Adobe updates Photoshop in such way that it will remove existing generator Plugins. To fix this, please re-install the plugin. If you don't have the installer anymore, you can download it from your Source Profile.

This usually mean you don't have Generator enabled. To fix this, go to Photoshop->Preferences->Plug-Ins... and check the "Enable Generator" option. On Windows, it's located in Edit->Preferences->Plug-Ins....

There is a problem with Generator (CC2014/2015 only)

Generator Error

If you experience this error, please send all generator log files that can be found here to team@madebysource.com:
