Common errors

  1. Got an empty extension panel after loading the extension?  => On CC 2015, just click on the top right drawer icon & select “Reset Extension”. If it keeps failing, quit Photoshop & restart the extension (wait a few more seconds when the extension loads again).
  2. Got a spinner that keeps spinning above your extension?  => There might be a bug! Just close the extension and reload it from Window > Extensions > Fontself Maker (you can also click on the top-right menu drawer and press Reload Extension). If you can reproduce this problem again, please let us know when it occurs and send us the logs file that you will find in View Logs / Send Logs).
