Which Adobe application are you using?
Which version?
Which OS version?

How exactly are you trying to fill?

If you create a new document, does fill work correctly?

Hi Jeffrey - Just done a search about the exact same problem and saw this from a year ago. To answer your question, yes, it works on a new document but not in the one that I want it to work in. This is the 4th time it happened to day, all on different documents. I am not sure why it's saying free memory 2mb when my task manager says differently. System: Windows 10, Adobe Photoshop Version: 2017.0.1 20161130.r.29 2016/11/30:23:00:00 CL 1099099  x64

Version: 10 or greater
System architecture: Intel CPU Family:6, Model:14, Stepping:3 with MMX, SSE Integer, SSE FP, SSE2, SSE3, SSE4.1, SSE4.2, AVX, AVX2, HyperThreading
Physical processor count: 4
Logical processor count: 8
Processor speed: 3408 MHz
Built-in memory: 16326 MB
Free memory: 2 MB

Very strange. What does the system info say the "Memory Used By Photoshop" is set to?

94% - I set it to that to give Photoshop a bit more leg way? Maybe I was wrong in doing so? System info - Memory available to Photoshop: 14470 MB
Memory used by Photoshop: 94 %
