Lightroom does not create thumbnails after saving from Photoshop

All of a sudden, now
when I go into Photoshop to edit a photo and bring it back into lightroom, the previews in the filmstrip and grid mode are greyed out.  If I bring them into the develop module, it shows up which leads me to believe LR isn't creating a preview once saving from Photoshop back into Lightroom.  Any ideas?

Make sure you're saving with Maximize Compatibility and Previews in PS Prefs.

Hi Alan,

What is the version of Lr and Ps you are working on? and OS version?  

I verified this workflow on both win and mac with Lr and Ps latest versions, I do not see any issue. Lr is updating the preview(in grid, loupe and filmstrip) as soon as I save the image in Ps. Could you attach a screen recording, it would be helpful for us in reproducing the issue.
