Anyone know why photoshop elements 9 editor doesn't always save as a version set even if this option is selected in the save options? I can be working with a set of 10-20 photos that I'm editing, and some will save as version sets, and some will not.

'Version Set' option is shown only for those files that have been already imported in Organizer.

To achieve that whenever you directly open a file (not present in Organizer) in Editor, go to 'File' menu > Organize Open File.

After doing this you'll always get a 'version set' option while saving.

It's not a problem with the option not being available, and the photos ARE already in the organizer. The problem is that even when the 'version set' option is selected, it does not always save that way.

I don't have an answer, just what appears to be the same problem. Every so often, an edited file does not get put in the Version Set, even though you requested it and all other files you were editing at the time were correctly handled. It almost seems like the request times out?

I use Elements 10 on Windows 8 and store as PSD or JPG files.

I'm not so worried about Organiser / Elements doing this, as long there is a get around. Does anyone know if it is possible to retrospectively assign a file in Organiser to a Version Set, i.e., to tell Organiser that files A and B should actually be part of the same Version Set?

This would prevent us having to re-edit the file which seems to be the only way of getting a file into a Version Set. The option would also be usefull if, for some reason, you lost the database and were left with a load of original and edited files in a folder. You could then get all of these files, and rebuild the Version Sets manually.
