This happens to me about once a week when editing in Lightroom... I go to edit in Photoshop while accidentally selecting multiple photos. This causes Photoshop to then dutifully open every selected photo one by one which inevitably crashes my computer, sends my blood pressure to dangerous levels, and ruins my workflow. I know... I should be more careful, but having a warning such as "You are attempting to edit 1128 photos in Adobe Photoshop. Do you wish to continue?" when opening large numbers of photos (say 10 or more) would be incredibly useful for preventing this human error. Or a way to stop it once started... Thanks!

Even more than one image would make such a warning useful

How many files do you have to have selected for the warning to come up?  I tried 13 and nothing displayed.

I will ask the team.    Talked to the team and it appears that it isn't working for them either. We will be reopening the feature request.

Thanks Rikk for the update.   In my testing I kept trying bigger numbers.  I did notice the the issue of not all the files opening in Photoshop is still present.  I tried the following numbers of files selected in Lr and what was opened in Photoshop.  This has been a long term issue


lr.         ps
10.      10
13.     12
20.      18
25.      23

What it says about Quality Management when an issue is said to be fixed and after publishing the update the team learns it doesn't work that way after all?

Nobody tried opening any actual files after the fix was supposedly written in the code?

It is probably just a misunderstanding and the update wasn’t supposed to fix this at all.

Okay. I see two Adobe employees liked your comment Johan. So, should I decode this as:

This issue was not supposed to be fixed in this update. There was a misunderstanding.

...or not? Would help understanding all the people doing hard work fixing bugs if we wouldn't need to count on speculation and instead Adobe would clarify the issue.

Johan's interpretation was correct. The new functionality had not yet been released but was included in the release notes by error.

This works for me when "Edit in" "Edit in Photoshop..."  but it does not work when selecting "Edit in" "Open as Smart Object in Photoshop..."   I hope that can be changed.
