Then if I open the test-editable doc the layers have all been flattened
But if I go to close photoshop, I get message saying The adobe document C:/users\...\test.pdf has not been saved completely because the current file format does not support all the features of your document....
and you would think that doesn't matter because its referring to the file that i unchecked preserve on purpose.
and if I then hit the yes option to save with layers it will let me save as editable.
Just seems like a bug that happens if you initially save as and don't preserve the layers then the next time you save as and its not pre-ticked it wot save as an editable file even if you do check the box beside preserve.
This happens every time I save a file and uncheck preserve and then later save as and tick preserve.
