This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Lightroom Classic/Camera Raw: "Edit with..." -"Open"does not work for photos from NAS

Since the February 2019 Lightroom Classic CC and Photoshop CC, opening files from Lightroom via 'Edit in Photoshop' only opens Photoshop but does not open the file.
This problem appears to only occur for files with Process Version 3 or earlier. Updating to the current process version makes no difference.
I am working with RAW files converted to DNG.  MacOS Mojave 10.14.3
I am working on a project and really need to get this to work quickly!!

Are the photos on a NAS?

Some are, others aren't. Makes no difference.

Something else came to light, though: JPG, TIF and PSD files will open properly in Photoshop, but not RAW files. Practically all my work is RAW (NEF) converted to DNG.

Try disabling the Home Screen in preferences.

Good idea, thanks ... but I have always had it disabled. It makes no difference.

I have the same problem also since the February Photoshop and Lightroom upgrades. Mac OSX Mojave 10.14.3. Disabling Photoshop Home screen makes no difference. One workaround is to export the image as a PSD (adding to the catalog) and then open in Photoshop but that's clunky. Downgrading to the previous Photoshop version (but keeping the Lightroom upgrade) restored the "Edit in" functionality.

That's interesting. So, this means it is a Photoshop problem rather than Lightroom or Camera Raw.
Can you downgrade easily enough? Not sure how I would do that.

Downgrade is available from the CC desktop app (dropdown menu for each application)
