Could you please let me know how many images did you select for " Merge to Panorama ", once done you should be able to click on File >Save.
Once done , you should be able to see the Edited file next to the original.
Also check the Preferences >External Editing > Stack with Original.
Let me know if it helps.
i am trying to merge 3 photos, and that option was already selected, i tried it again for maybe the 8th time and this time for some reason it worked, I'm going to test it out on some other panoramas to see if it fixed itself
seems to be working fine not sure what was wrong but thanks for your help
You are Welcome, Glad to help.
