Photoshop 2020: Opening multiple images as layers from lightroom classic crashes photoshop

  • Problem
  • Updated 4 days ago
Reproduce:
- Lightroom Classic, select 3 images
- Right click > EDIT IN > Open as Layers in Photoshop
- Photoshop opens and loads first image, at second image it crashes (app closes).

Can someone reproduce this to verify its not a problem only on my computer?

I have similar problem but the difference is that my app will not crash. It just doesn ́t open the files as a layers. It start to open the very first image but stops at half o it. 

The only thing i can do is to press ESC.
I found that if i open all of my files from LR separately, than i can also open them as layers too without a problem. However this workaround is very time consuming :(

I think that this misbehavior started after last W10 1909 upgrade :(
