I recently upgraded to Elements 15. My OS is Windows 7 Professional.
When I try to use Open Recently Edited File, it shows an old list. This list doesn't update with the most recent files I've edited.
One of the members has a partial fix, namely to occasionally delete the MachinePrefs.psp file.
Is there a way to open an official bug report (or ticket or whatever it is called here)?
Is Adobe responsive to bug reports, by at least acknowledging them? Should I do something else to report this so they know about it??
"I've figured it out:
Open c:\Users\your name\AppData\Roaming\Photoshop Elements\15.0\Editor\*.*
there you will see the file "MachinePrefs.psp" which contains the info about the last opened image files. If the list has reached the number 100 it stops to accept new image numbers.
It should, however, like in previous PSE versions, store the last file number and simply move position 99 to position 100, and so on. This doesn't (yet?) work with PSE15.
Now delete the "MachinePrefs.psp" file and you will have after the next opening of PSE15 again 100 positions available.
"Recently Edited File" list will not update on the File>Open menu of PSE 15.
My guess is that it may be a bug inherited from Photoshop as that happens sometimes... The code of Elements is updated from Photoshop regularly. That's good for improvements, but for bugs...
That would mean that the fix is available now (good thing), but not yet applied to Elements. No new dot release yet. I am afraid we'll have to wait for the next version in October!
The workaround indicated above only solves the problem for maximum 100 files before resetting the machine.prefs.
