"Edit in Photoshop" setting not working properly

In the current version 12.3 one should be able to determine with which PS version LrC works together. I have installed the current Photoshop version as well as the beta version. Unfortunately, the beta version opens by default, unless I have already opened the regular PS version in the background.
So I was looking forward to this change. However, I must point out that in my installation the beta version does not appear in the drop-down list. See here:

All I have to choose from is the regular version. Nevertheless, the beta version of PS opens by default (as described above), unless the regular version is already open in the background....

Does anyone have any idea why this is happening or how to configure it correctly?


BR, Thomas

Now it gets completely absurd: I tried what happens if I manually create another "Edit In" entry with the regular Photoshop. Surprise! When I select this entry, regular Photoshop actually opens. Very nice!

But that's not all: from this point on, all other entries like "open as layers in PS" or the new "open as smart object layers" also open in regular Photoshop (and not as before in the beta version). The dropdown list in the preferences still contains only one entry.
Now, in order to still be abl

Well... I am reluctant to this suggestion, because it says "your presets and plugins may be affected by this". I really don't want to reconfigure my Lrc installation if I can avoid it. Somehow I don't have the feeling that I should risk this effort, just because Adobe doesn't seem to have a grip on its configuration across all applications. 

Thanks for your feedback, I appreciate it.

Nothing drastic will happen to your presets or plugins. You may have to use 'Manage Presets' again to make certain groups visible or invisible, but you won't lose anything.

Not an answer, but, If you are confident in editing the Windows registry you might find a clue to the problem in this help article-

EDIT IN Photoshop command missing

"Solution 2: Re-create the Photoshop.exe application path registry key."- Step#10 refers to the 'Path' to the (correct?) version of Photoshop that opens from LrC.

Thanks for this. I tried, but it doesn't work. 😞 It seems as if (under Windows) the minute you install the Beta version, it becomes the systems standard to open Photoshop documents. Even when I manually change the path to PS 2023 instead of PS Beta, it doesn't help. Everytime teh Beata version opens as my system standard.

So I tried what happens if I deinstall PS-Beta. After that in LrC the "open in PS" option was completely missing. Luckily I had the option to make an update on Photoishop in the CC desktop app. After that the "open in PS" reappeared in LrC and everything worked fine.
The minute I reinstalled PS-Beta everything was like before: in the LrC settings dialog there's only one entry in the dropdown list named "Photoshop 2023" (see my first post above for the screenshot"). But when I chose "Edit in Photoshop" the image is opened in Photoshop Beta.
This is ridiculous...

My (non expert) thoughts are that the Photoshop Beta is still considered to be 'Photoshop 2023' (with modifications) and being the latest install it is linked to LrC as the primary Photoshop.

Have you tried setting up Photoshop 2023 as a Additional External Editor to give you a choice of Ps version?

Now, in order to still be able to use the beta as well if needed, I created another "edit in" entry with it. Of course with the fear that from now on only the beta will open by default again.

Turns out, that the last opened version (regular or beta) is always used as default. So you have to use the corresponding manually created entry once to set the default version.
I can live with that...
