Opening a raw image from Bridge as a smart object, PS adds a hyphen and a number to the image name. This number starts with 1 and increments if the same raw file is opened again. Does not happen when opening as an image. This seemed to appear after recent PS Update. 15.1

That shouldn't have changed. Photoshop tries to make sure the document name is unique.

This is the real problem!In the layout, all the names of layers are unique, but for some reason Photoshop function adds a number to the smart object.
For this reason, the action does not work

So ... rebooted (Win10), purged Bridge cache for folder, and reset PS preferences. Still happens. Opening NEF files from Bridge (Shot today, all in new folder, no duplicates). PS adds -1 to the new file name if opened as Smart Object. If image closed without saving, and PS remains open, this number is incremented by 1 when opened again as Smart Object or as Image. If PS closed, numbers start at -1 again for Smart Object. If PS closed and same raw file opened as Image no number added.

NOTE: In fact the numbers go -1, -3, -4, -5 ... no -2 ... go figure.

Peculiar issue, not a fatal one.

Last additional comments ... now happens on my laptop as well. Deleted PS from the desktop, and rebooted. Reinstalled PS ... behavior continues as described.

Ahhh ... PS no longer adding 'as Smart Object-1' to PSD name, just the -1. Always disliked this long addition to the file name, so happy to see it go. But the numbers are still awkwardly applied.
