Hi there,

because of massive performance problems I decided to perform a "clean install" with my MacPro.

Performance sometimes is better - but sometimes it ́s still crap :(

Now a further problem came to me:
I am not able to edit photos in Photoshop or Nik Collection by "Edit with..." when my photo is located on a Synology NAS.

If it is located locally or on a external ThunderBoldt drive it works as suggested.

When trying to edit a photo that is stored at my Synology NAS in PS e.g. I right-click it, choosing "Edit with..." Photoshop CC2019.
Then PS ist opening - but nothing more happens...
When trying to move that photo with drag/drop in to PS, PS tells me "file not found".

What can I do? It was working as suggested before performing a "clean install"

Mac Pro late 2013
Mojave - latest version, but no public or develop Beta!
Creative Cloud - so most current versions of LR an PS (checking daily for new versions)

Photos are stored:
- locally in Pictures folder - no problem
- on a external thunderboldt drive - no problem
- on my Synology NAS - does NOT work.

My NAS Folder is mounted as Volume like: "apfs://"
I am able to access that NAS folder without any problems! I am able to move photos from locally to the NAS in LR, I am able to move photos from the NAS to a local folder using LR to...

Thank you!
