Does someone know if an error during the Document Generation still counts as one used (The number of allowed document generations is reduced with one)?
document generation, license
any conversion errors that happen inside your SharePoint farm won't affect the document generation limits. Usage is counted when the live service has been triggered and a generated document was sent back to your farm.

I did the following positive tests:
In other words, in all cases, no document generation was consumed.
very nice scenarios! Thanks for sharing this.
