Lightroom Classic: Send Stacks to Photoshop as Layers

So, when you stack images in LR (for instance, bracketed groups), then select individual stacks, choosing "Edit in Photoshop as Layers" performs as expected, sending the images in the stack to Photoshop as layers.

However, if you select two or more stacks and then choose "Edit in Photoshop as Layers", instead of opening a photoshop file for each stack, with each image in any given stack opened as layers, LR opens a single PS file, wth the top image from each stack as a layer. For the life of me I can't understand why anyone would want this.

Wouldn't it make more sense to open a Photoshop file for each stack, with each image in the stack as a layer?

The logic at the moment is really simple. It doesn't see "stack", it simply sees a number of selected photos and does exactly what you've asked - it loads the selected photos in Photoshop as a document with layers. I think it could make a good feature request though, so I'll convert the post.
