Photoshop: Generator never works when I need it to

Love the Generator feature, but every time I try to use it I spend half my time trying to get it to work. Anyone else have a similar problem?

Occasionally the asset generator plugin or the generator itself will lose it's mind. Most of the time, my problem is solved by restarting photoshop.

What is really frustrating is when a particular layer or group gets some bad generator setting permanently stored on it and the mask or crop is out of whack. I have to move all the layers into a new document, delete the group, and move them back and recreate the group from scratch to fix it.

We have recently fixed a number of issues with generator which will be coming out soon in our next release, including better export with respect to bounds (masks, etc).

Can't wait! I will probably gain over an hour of productivity every day fiddling with Generator's bugginess!

Any updates on fixes to Generator? It seems to get worse over time. I literally waste 20% of my days wrestling with Generator and its endless number of bugs...it is so frustrating!!

For example, here is an export from a layer comp. I can assure you this is not my design.

Thanks for all the hard work updating and fixing! As much as I hate to be critical on the tail of good news, I have a serious issue with the latest version that has pretty much torpedoed the workflow I've been setting up for my office: https://feedback.photoshop.com/photos...

What's the latest on Generator? I feel like I spend half of every day trying to get Generator to work.

No matter what I try nothing in my assets folder changes.

Please don't make me reconsider Sketch :(
