Change in visibility of tiffs in LR

Since updating to the latest LR Classic and Photoshop 20.1 the visibility of my tif files in LR has changed. Formerly when I finished editing in Photoshop and "save as" a named tif in a subfolder called "processed" the image would still appear in my LR catalog as a tif file with the name I gave it. Since updating last week, the tif file with photoshop edits is not visible in LR. Instead a new file with "(filename given in-camera) - edit.tif" appears, but it does not have photoshop edits. Has this procedure changed, and if so, how can I work around it to keep finished tif files visible in LR?

I have not seen anything changed in that area? I just tried editing a photo and removing a nasty object from it, saved it and it became
"E_oldphotoname.tif", and (as I requested) was auto-stacked with the original, with the TIF on top.

Do not use ‘Save as’, use ‘Save’. If you want to use another name and/or another folder, then do so later in Lightroom.

Hm -- maybe is there some default SAVE preference in PS? I don't see one.

Coming from LR, I just edit then close PS -- it then asks if I want to save it and I say YES (or NO).
It saves as a TIF which is what I told LR I wanted for external edit in PS.

The point is that Lightroom created that ‘imagename-edit.tif’, so you have to let Photoshop use that same name in order to keep the connection. That is why you need to use ‘Save’ in Photoshop, not ‘Save as’. This has always been the way to do this, but recently it was also possible to use ‘save as’ without Lightroom losing the connection. Apparently things have gone back to the old way, however. So use ‘save’ in Photoshop, not ‘save as’.
