We have Adobe plugins for Indesign, Illustrator and Photoshop (2020 & 2021). The functionality of the plugins is the same for all the applications and they use Apple Events to send/receive events from one of our applications. On Mojave and Catalina there is a security prompt when the plugin first tries to send the Apple Events (if required we can share the logs, please let us know on this).

When the Indesign and Illustrator plugins load and send Apple Events this prompt is shown and when allowed the plugins are able to send and receive Apple Events. But on photoshop 2020 this prompt is never shown and the plugin is never able to send Apple Events.
