I just got word that someone else has been able to repro the problem internally and we'll be coming out with a fix soon.

Thanks,
David

This should be solved in the 2015.1.2 update released today: http://blogs.adobe.com/crawlspace/201...

Hi Bob,

What are you seeing when you try to do a File > Open Recent?  Could you post a screenshot?

Thanks,
David

Same here. The list appears to have a static list of old recent files.

If you drop new files onto Photoshop, or choose File > Open to open a new file, they are not appended to the recent file list (File > Open Recent).

I might have a solution: it appears that clearing the recent list (File > Open Recent > Clear Recent File List) gets things working properly again.

For some time only, after a while it breaks again. This cannot be considered a fix.

Hmmm....that's odd.  I'm not seeing that here.

Each file I open is added to my recent list.  And I'm running a clean build via the public servers, so the exact same thing you guys are.  I'm wondering if this may be a permissions issue -- for some reason the recent file list has some flag set that's preventing updating.

Trevor, can you confirm that resetting the recent file list fixes everything?

I've restarted Photoshop and opened some more files, and all appears to be working fine after resetting the list. All good here.

Thanks for the feedback.  I'll look into reproducing it and forward this solution to the tech support folks.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Photoshop CC 2015.1 won't save files in recent files.

Since the newest update, sometimes? the program saves and sometimes it WON'T (Or more like not at all i think) the "Recent Files" i've opened, making it annoying to re-fiiiiiiind 'em at their folders..

Is there any way to recover/fix this?

Clear the recent files list, then they'll start accumulating again. But after 100 recent files, it'll stop again.

Same problem - the November update has been a disaster.

This was a problem from long time ago.
I always noticed I could not rely on my recent lists cause it was never updated. But I didn't really cared cause there was no "start page" to help you open the most recent items.
Now I wanna use this new feature, but it doesn't work thanks to a very old bug.
