Photoshop: Generator offsets and crops images randomly when resizing to a pixel dimension.

I have a number of layer groups that are masked to the edge of the artboard. When I use generator to export them without resizing them, the exported PNGs align perfectly. If I then manually resize the separate PNGs they remained aligned.

When I add 1000x1000 in front of the image title in the layer group to resize them, they will sometimes align but most often be offset randomly by between 10 and 50 pixels or so.

Occasionally the output PNGs will be cropped to 1000x1000 instead of being resized, though this behavior happens more rarely.

Can this be fixed?

Hey Mark, I have logged the bug and a developer is looking at it.  As soon as the developer can identify the problem in the code, we might be able to figure out a workaround, but for now, unfortunately, there isn't a workaround other than manually fixing the offset.  :(  Sorry, I know this is a pain.  I'll continue to follow up and poke the dev.
