Selecting 'Edit in Adobe Photoshop CC 2019' from Lightroom Classic I am unable to create a duplicate layer in the layers palette. I've tried Ctrl/J plus the pop-up edit menu. Menu is greyed out. I've looked at 'Preferences' but can see no issues. Any help appreciated.

Found an Adobe official workaround:
In order - launch Photoshop CC then Lightroom Classic CC and finally 'Edit in Photoshop CC'.
All menus now active ... everything ok.

I assume a known bug that will be fixed at next upgrade.

I'm starting to hate Adobe updates. They seem to break something every time. Shockingly bad QC. I have to wait until others have 'beta tested' Adobe's updates before committing.

I think the bug first appeared in v2.0.1. Ticking Disable the Home Screen in in PS CC's Peferences/General tab is another workaround. I'd be surprised if this wasn't fixed in the next Photoshop update, but then life's full of surprises.

I have it on good authority that it should be fixed in the next Photoshop update. At least the workarounds are fairly simple for now.
