This is an old issue but I didn't see a solution. Does anyone know the fix for this?
Thanks for the quick response! I have the latest version of the Creative Cloud (Photoshop CC and Encore CS6). My machine is a Late spring 2008 Mac Pro running on Mountain Lion - OS 10.8.4. The problem appeared after I was using this work flow successfully for about a week and a half.
This error occurrs when I have set up a menu in Encore using the Adobe Menu Templates and then attempt to send it to Photoshop directly through Encore by doing a right click and choosing the "Edit Menu in Photoshop" option. I have found a work around by locating the Photoshop file in the Encore sourses folder and opening that directly in Photoshop. That keeps things moving but it isn't the cleanest way to move between aps.
I assume the problem is that Encore CS6 expects Photoshop CS6. I assume you do not have it installed. Even if you did, it may not work as expected. If this is a PR CC/EN CS6 problem, it is just as serious, and many of us would say more serious, than the loss of dynamic link. You should contact Adobe tech support to see if they can help you sort out how to get EN CS6 using "edit in photoshop" to PS CC correctly.
Without that, be careful editing the Encore source folder file directly. Encore/Photoshop creates a temp version that it uses till PS hands it back off to Encore. And you will sometimes see 3 or 4 versions of the menu even when Encore is handling it all by itself. Editing it directly with Encore open is asking for trouble. And editing it with Encore closed may be worse!
I would work with a copy of the file from the Encore source folder, save it outside that directory, then "import as menu" that file. (Encore will put a new, current version into its directory.) I would try to get every bit of the menu structure/highlilghts, etc, set. Then I would make any other changes to the menu in Encore. I would not do any significant links/navigation until the menu is set.
I found the best and safest solution is to restore Photoshop CS6 to my computer. Once I did that Encore looks for the CS6 version of Photoshop as it did in the past. Your suggestion nailed the problem. Thanks a lot!!!
