After "Edit in Adobe Photoshop NNNN" and saving, Lightroom used to automatically import the edited PSD.  This stopped working a few months ago.

Auto import of edited files stopped working after I "Updated Folder Location" from a letter drive (P:), which was mapped to a network folder (\\NAS0\home\Pictures), directly to the UNC path \\NAS0\home\Pictures.  Apparently, there's a bug in auto import relating to UNC path names.

No it hasn't stopped working, either a few months ago or with the new V10 of LrC.

Something on your system is making this happen.

 

And what is Ps NNNN? Never heard of that version of Photoshop.

More specific information:

  • Auto import of edited-in-Ps .psd files fails with LrC v9 and Ps 21 OR LrC v10 and Ps 22.0.0
  • OS is Windows 10
  • Fails when edited image is on either network or local drive
  • LrC Auto Import works OK

Just spent a couple of hours with Adobe support running various tests demonstrating that auto import doesn't work for photos on a network drive.  Using my usual catalog, auto import fails silently.  Using a newly-created catalog, the auto-imported photo is "missing" because LrC is accessing C: instead of the network folder where the edited file actually resides.

 

I suspect that this was broken by the June 2020 (version 9.3) release.
