Photoshop CC 2019 Menu Items Grayed Out

When exporting from Lightroom Classic CC to Photoshop CC with the right-click menu item "Edit In Adobe Photoshop CC 2019" the resulting files have almost totally grayed out menu items in Photoshop, making them impossible to edit or apply filters to the files, with no ability to bring the menu items back to life. Sometimes I can open Photoshop first, before clicking the Edit In selection and this process will work properly, but not always. It seems to want to fail once before I can finagle it into working properly. It is becoming a major pain in the butt, especially when editing many files in any particular project that require Photoshop. I have seen other posts on the Internet regarding this problem, but none here so I thought I would put it up.

This issue has been reported here many times already. It is a bug. For now you can solve it by first starting Photoshop, before you send any images from Lightroom to Photoshop.

It is NOT a Lightroom only issue.  I get it coming from ACR.  It sucks.
