I’ve tried the forums and Google regarding the following issue. It seems that after updating to PS 2019 v20 or later, the dropletfeature in LR’s export fails if more than one file is selected at a time.  The only workaround seems to be to create thedroplet’s shortcut on the desktop or other directory, then manually select (byFile Explorer or File Finder) and then drag the whole folder to the shortcut.  Not sure if this is the case with Mac since I’mon Windows, but others on the forum are having the same problem with notresolution as late as 10/16’s post (before mine today).  Yes, this workaround  seems to work, but that goes against all objectivesof Adobe to make things easier and more efficient, not less so by requiring anintervening export, then an out-of-application drag/drop.  Please passthis along to the appropriate  to see if we can get a fix a.s.a.p.   I used this feature many times fordirect-to-slideshow alterations to cataloged files such as applying custom stroke lines or borders.  Thanks for any help you can lend.

A workaround posted on another forum, at least for running directly on the droplet is to put all the images you want to process in a folder and drop that the single folder on the droplet.
