  • Bug Fix: In rare cases ActionsXXL was not able to record commands from ElementsXXL, LayersXXL or FilterHub previously.
  • Bug Fix: When starting up Photoshop Elements 11-14 in Quick mode while opening an image file via command line ActionsXXL previously blocked Photoshop Elements. Under Photoshop Elements 15 it previously resulted in a crash on exit.
