New 64 bit droplets are not working in macOS Catalina and Photoshop 20.0.6. When I save a droplet, it's showing an incorrect modification date and time in the Finder of Aug 13, 2019 at 11:56pm. Droplets open but do not complete any actions or give any errors, they just don't run.

More info: When I view the contents of the package for a new droplet, it looks like there's still a 32 bit application in the resources folder...

Further, when I open the droplets with Photoshop it saves a new version named (64 bit), but still has the 32 bit Droplet.88DR app inside the resources folder.

Uninstalled and reinstalled photoshop, same issue continues but the modified date is now from today, but still static, doesn't update the time modified correctly. I also tried creating a new action from scratch to make the new droplet from and same issue. ALL droplets appear to still have a 32 bit app inside the package contents/resources folder inside the droplet.

Working with making entirely new easy image resize droplets and also unsuccessful at working at all. Tried solutioning several different ways through batching as well and not working at all. I have the latest version of Photoshop 20.0.6 upgraded btw.

We’re investigating this issue. Seems to be related to quarantine changes in Catalina.

Not yet, sorry. We’re working with Apple on it.

Confirmed same issue on a clean installation of macOS 10.15 and PS 20.0.6 and created a new droplet from scratch. When you view contents of the package, the Droplet.88DR application in the resources folder is 32bit.

Apparently Fixed in PS 20.0.7 according to the known issues page...

Solution
Update to Photoshop 20.0.7 and recreate droplets.

I drag the image file over the droplet, but Photoshop crashes and nothing runs.

Yes, exactly the same Droplet.8BDR with the incompatibility warning mark.

Droplets appear to be working now, although it's still showing the incompatibility icon for the Droplet.8BDR file in the Resources folder.
