LR5 does not play well with external editors.

LR5 does not accept edited images from Nik products. Edited three images in HDR Efex Pro 2 and the saved image would not show up back in LR5.

When I do edit an image in CS5 or OnOne the saved image and the original appear at the end of the film strip string rather than where the original was located in the file sequence. When I try to put the image back in the proper sequence it tells me that I "Can not reorder photos" and "Currently selected source does not support custom order". This wasn't a problem ion LR4.

Not sure about NIK products, and maybe that is something to take up with them, since L5 just came out and their applications may not be compatible, yet.

As far as an image ending up at the end, is that because you have your Sort in Library set to Added Order or Edit Time instead of Filename order or perhaps even Capture Time? You can obviously set the Sort to User Order too.
