When going from LR to PS and back, I have always had to manually switch back to LR after PS closes the PSD file.
If the new PSD file shows in the slideshow at the bottom, it is selected. However, it not always showing is a different conversation.
Obviously I am not being much help except to suggest that what you are seeing seems normal.
The behavior you are seeing now is how it is always worked on my computer. I'm using Windows 7.
Ok thanks. I guess it's normal but still annoying. I'd love for LR to open or move "front" as an active window when I save and close the file in PS. It's not even highlighting the saved new .tiff file in LR. Just a small annoyance that slows down my editing time a little bit. I guess I'll adjust.
I use a Mac, so its similar to Windows I guess in that respect. Adobe should take note and maybe fix this! It would be a nice enhancement when working between the two programs.
