@Hongs: the 'solution' is to start Photoshop first and then open the file from LR. That way the shortcuts keep working.

I reached out to Adobe and complained about the issue and also referred to this topic. They only replied I should upvote the issue so the developers would prioritize the issue in the next update.. ugh -_-"

Edit: so everyone who has this problem, please click on "mee too" on top of this page!
