Elements 12 Organizer does not always properly create a version set.

I am editing some photos in the organizer, by opening the editor, and editing in Quick mode. I simply do the smart fix, click the X to kill the editor, chose save as version set, but when I get back into the organizer, there is no version set for my photo. The _edited file is in the directory with the original file, but there is no version set icon in the organizer. This does not always happen. I have been able to create some version sets for some photos. But it does appear to be consistent on particular files. If I close Elements and reopen, the problem still exists on that particular file. I will endeavor to try some other sequence of events to see if I can ever get it to work on a particular troublesome file.

I've been using Elements for many years and have just upgraded to Photoshop Elements 12, so this appears to be a real bug.

So I tried going through the save, save as version set, then X sequence; same results no version set in organizer but _edited file created.

So apparently this is somehow related to the fact that, in the organizer, I was showing the photo by viewing it in a Local Album. If I switched the organizer to show all photos and then edit it from there, I was able to create a version set. I repeated the experiment and sure enough, if I edit the photo from the view while in the album, the version set is not created. It's weird that this does not happen for all my photos in that album as I was able to edit and create version sets for other photos in that album.

Thanks greatly for the info! Still a sad face on the fact that I found nothing about this issue by searching on the adobe site. I didn't think to search again when I was redirected to feedback.photoshop.com. I now I know about feedback.photoshop.com. I guess I thought this site was for the full-on professional photoshop. Thanks Michel!
