Photoshop: Export layers to files bug

export layers to files is merging each layer with one other layer on export. I have a bunch of text only layers and half a dozen regular image layers.  I'm exporting png24.   I've used this feature extensively and today it starts doing this.  I finally found a work around - I put a blank text layer at the bottom of all my text layers and at least now I can't see the overlay.  Also, export layers to files only seems to work right if I set my visiblity and choose Visible Layers Only.  Any other choice causes the program to terminate early with some sort of "delete isn't available" or something.

For the layer merging issue, do you happen to have a group in between two non-group layers? If so this is a known issue that I will raise in priority.

For the hidden layer issue - I've reproduced with a group. Non-group layers are working for me. I'll open a bug for this.

Thanks,
Eric

I'm having this same issue in cc2019. It started all of a sudden; export layers to files is a script I use almost daily, and now I get the same error as this user.

Actually, I just figured out what the issue is: if you're exporting layers to files, even if you have the box checked to export only visible layers, but there's a hidden locked layer other than the background, the export script will fail.
