Photoshop/Camera Raw/Lightroom: "Edit in Photoshop" not working (macOS)

Hi,

I need some help. If I rightclick on a photo in Lightroom Classic CC with some work already being done and choose "edit in Photoshop", Photoshop CC will open but I just end up on the start page where you can create a new image. How do I fix this? This has always worked before. Recently I changed user on the Adobe account and when "edit in" didn ́t work I uninstalled all Adobe software on the computer and started over. Still the same problem occurs...

Some info that may be of help:
Running iMac OS Mojave vers 10.14.3
Photoshop version 20.0.3
Lightroom Classic CC 8.2

What do I do?

Thanks in advance!

What else do you have running? Have you run Etrecheck to look for conflicts?
I’m on much the same system here and it all works fine.
But background programs can interfere.
Keep us posted.
I doubt it’s Adobe, but something interfering with it.

Nothing I can think of that would create a conflict. Note that I havn ́t changed anything else on the computer other than switching user on adobe. All others programs and apps are the same and it worked before and I do not have Etrecheck installed.

This issue has been discussed elsewhere.  There appears to be an issue with Camera RAW 11.2.  If you downgrade to Camera RAW 11.0 or 11.1, the "Edit with...Photoshop" should work.  I don't know whether this will create future problems, but a number of people say this works.

I'm using PS 20.0.3 and ACR 11.2 and LR > Edit in PS works fine. I wonder if it's a blip with Mojave; I'm still on 10.14.2.

Also same version of LR CC Classic as you, 8.2. If downgrading ACR doesn't fix it, guess it's a bug when used with Mojave 10.14.3.

if the files are stored on a local drive it may work.  Image files on a NAS seem problematic

Ok, I just checked. I’m running exactly the same.versions as you
10.14.3
20.0.3
and the latest Classic etc.
Any photo opens in Photoshop to edit no problem.
So, sorry I’m not much help.

Have you checked External Editing in Prefs is set correctly? I had a similar problem a few months ago and discovered it had somehow cleared all the settings.

It looks like it should in Prefs...

I'm getting it too, albeit intermittently. (Probably hadn't noticed to before because last few projects didn't need much external editing, but its really holding me up now). On occasions when it does allow export and open app, I often see an error message on saving back to LR saying it can't import the file because the format is incompatible. Happening with both PS and other external editors. I'm still on Mojave 10.14.2. Looks like another blip in LR...

My image files are stored on a NAS (Synology). I moved one picture to the lokal harddrive and tried "edit in" and now it works. But I am still not really satisfied because I had the NAS running before and it worked fine then. It has to be some other way to fix this so I can keep the files at the NAS. 

How to I downgrade Camera Raw? I don ́t get that option in Creative Cloud on the three dots...

Same issue on mojave and NAS (Synology). Can't believe that Adobe doesn't test for silly bugs like this in their QA testing.

FIX ME
