Disappearing Nik layers in Photoshop

I’m using Lightroom Classic v13 & Photoshop v25 on Windows 11. When I’m in PS and edit a photo in Nik the layers get created in PS. When I go back to LR and go into PS again the layer panel shows the layers that were displayed are now merged into the baseline layer. I can confirm this by going into Edit → Undo Layer. Any idea how to keep the layers from merging? I’m using smart filters in Nik so I can go back in and tweak my Nik settings. Thanks.

Hi and welcome to the user forum.

To my knowledge, LR does not support PS layers,
but for details please check … e.g. LR to PS round trip | Lightroom Queen Forums

The link stated that if you go from LR to PS a second time then select “Edit Original”. Tested and it worked like a charm. Thanks @Wolfgang.
