Lightroom v4.1 , When you Export to PS CS5 to run a droplet. Have a OPTION to retain the Flags and Stars from your DNG/RAW LR set. So, when you run the droplet and the PSD file comes back into LR library GROUPED and on the top it also has the same Flags and Stars as the original DNG. (or not , your option)

The ratings should be retained. How do you "export" from LR to PS?

What is your PS and ACR version?

Yes, the Ratings is being retained , but "not" the Flag.
Just checked it again. v4.1 and CS5.

Was trying to run my droplet and keep a SORT in LR.

Thought I tried both ... Ratings and Flag.
but, guess I was not looking at the Ratings sort.

Need to now use Ratings to do my PICKS.
Because with my picks I run a Droplet Export (with Group) ... but in my sort by Flags/Picks my just created PSD would drop from sight. :)

Guess now I got to "temporarily" use a star to flag my PICKS.

Until Adobe retains the FLAG on Export.

Thank you Dorin for the reply.

That sounds like the expected behavior at the moment. Star ratings are saved to xmp, flags are not. That may change in the future, now that the flags are global instead of local. I agree, it would be useful.
