This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled cannot merge layers Photoshop 20.0.1.

In Lightroom I select a photo and click "Edit in Photoshop CC 2019". After that I create layers in Photoshop and work with them, but I cannot merge layers. Ctrl+Shift+E or Ctrl+Shift+Alt+E does not work, right-click menu is inactive too. Drop-down lists menu "Layer", "Select", "Image" and "Filter" are not active.
My OS: Win10 Pro 1809
Solved by deleting CC2019 (ver 20.0.1) and installing CC2018 (ver 19.1.7). Photoshop CC2018 is stable.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Sometimes menus/commands are unavailable.

Sometimes when I select JPG images in LR Classic and import them in the PS, menus and commands do not work.

Steps to reproduce:

1. Select JPG images in LRC
2. Right click on them choosing "Edit in PS CC2019"
3. LRC asking whether to use the adjustments - choose YES
4. PS freshly starting.
5. Menus are blank and keyboard shortcuts like CTRL M do not work at all

As shown in the gif (it's animated gif, please click on the image if it's not moving for you). Notice blank menus.

Okay Adobe, the problem has been identified, it is repeatable, demonstrable and we're now wondering when you're going to, you know, FIX IT?

Continued radio silence does NOT help your fan base defend you, you know?

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Cannot duplicate layer in new CC update.

I just opened an image in the newly update PSCC and there is NO OPTION to duplicate the layer?? It opned from LRCC as a locked background. I unlocked it and CTL-J does not work, Duplicate option is greyed out on both a right click and from the layer dropdown?? The layer says it is Layer 0 and there is NO OPTION to duplicate. WTF???

Let's cut the name calling and encourage Adobe to become a quality, reliable, supplier of imaging software which works out of the box hassle free.  A change of internal culture is what is needed and wanted.

The answer to this problem is simple: go to Preferences/General in Photoshop and tick the second option down - disable home screen. Problem solved! It's a new feature that has been added without realising it affected LR, but it is quite unnecessary so tick the box and it goes away and LR and PS work as usual.

It is very simple. But some people would rather vent then fix the temporary problem.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Compatibility issue between LR and PS?.

Whenever I start PS out of LR with Command+E in order to continue editing all tools in PS are greyed out and are not selectable. The workaround I found out is to save image in .tif format and reopen it either in PS directly or with Command+E out of LR. This happens since last upgrade. Anyone an idea what is wrong?

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled 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.

I see that today there are updates for Lr CC and Br CC. Hopefully this will address the recent issues.

Note: This issue requires an update to Photoshop CC. Updates to Lightroom, Bridge, etc. do not affect this issue.

Same problem. This greeted me after switching from macs (10 yrs+) to windows.

Some workarounds. Open a raw file directly to PS from explorer. Then you can start opening from LR without issue.

Keep opening from LR. After 5 images or so it works eventually which is so odd.
