i remember that theres a hot key to open an photoshop edit window by just holding option and double clicking on an image in illustrator. but i did that recently and it suddeenly didn't work. can anybody tell me how to change that back in preferences or whatever? it would be a great help.

 

thanks so much.

Is the image linked or embedded?

Do you get a message about there being no associated application, or does it just do nothing?

If you click on 'Edit Original' in the control bar or Properties panel, does that work?

The short cut won't work on an embedded image, relink it try again.

 

I'm using the cc2021 version, what I do is import the PSD file into illustrator, and whenever I need editing I just edit it from photoshoot, and will it will update automatically here.
