Make sure Photoshop CC is updated: Keeping Photoshop Up-To-Date
and if it is Lightroom CC, you should update that to CC2015.5.1: Keeping Lightroom Up-to-Date
Also, go to Lightroom Preferences > File handling > increase the cache size to 80-90GB > relaunch Lightroom and again check for the same workflow and let us know if that helps.
Unfortunately, no, updating both PS and LR and then increasing cache size in LR did not work. I have the same problem. Repeated whole procedure. The text added in PS in step two shows up black in PS and in LR Library Module but blue in LR Develop Module. The BW conversion added in step 3 in LR does not stick after step 4. After step 4, when I look at photo in LR again, no BW conversion. It has disappeared. Any other ideas?
I tried editing in PS as "Edit with LR adjustments" when sending to PS after step 3. The BW conversion sticks but I still have the issue of the different text color in LR modules and I really didn't want to create another copy and wanted the PS layers able to be edited again which is why I initially used Edit Original.
Sorry to know that it did not work.
Another suggestion would be to go to Lightroom Preferences > Performance > uncheck "use graphics processor" > relaunch Lightroom and then, reproduce.
No, unfortunately unchecking the graphics processor did not make a difference. I had made some changes in both LR and PS preferences file handling that were suggested by Adobe's book. It doesn't look like any of these changes could be the problem. I attempted to revert to default just in case but couldn't find a way to do that.
If you choose 'Edit original' it ignores the Lightroom edit and opens the file exactly how you saved it the first time from Photoshop. If you choose to edit a copy with Lightroom edits it will open the file with the black and white edit, but your layers will be flattened.
Lightroom works on flattened files. You can not have a file with both layers and Lightroom edits.
