This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Photoshop: How did I get a flattened PSD after saving PDF?

This bug just cost me hours of work : ( . I have a file with multiple artboards in Photoshop. Saved the PSD, then wanted to save a copy as PDF, did that. Then I continued my work. When I finished, I saved the PSD file again, on top of what I had saved before, and closed my file thinking: I'm Done! on the next. Unluckily for me, That PSD files (as well as the PDF), got flattened without my knowledge. I lost all my layers, all of my work pretty much. Happened two times on two seperate files.

So it seems like when you have a file with multiple Artboards, and save as a PDF mid-way, and save as PSD after that, that PSD gets flattened.

you saved as PDF instead of Saving a Copy As PDF.

or maybe you just unchecked layers in the save as window?

That's a possibility. I would never uncheck it if I'm saving as a PSD, but perhaps after saving as PDF it unchecks itself?
