    I dont work for Skylum but have spent a fair bit of time looking into LMNR files and such and I can tell you that this is not a bug in L3/L4 but simply how the program works.

    In L2018/LFlex, it was an edge case bug that most developers in a small stretched team would most probably put in the "Wont Fix" category. In both cases, L3/L4 and L2018/LFlex, you have changed the source file and it is simply reflecting this.

    It was technically possible to change this approach in L2018/LFlex as things as encapsulated in an LMNR file as you mentioned in your linked post but as said though, this is such an edge case in an unsupported environment that most would have it very low down the list of priorities.

    With the change to using a database in L3/L4, it simply cannot be "fixed" and is just how the program works. You will have to refrain from changing your base layer after working it over once and you should select a different name if you need a different version.

    I expect Skylum would issue you a refund if your workflow dictates that you must always overwrite such base layers and cannot select a different name when you need a different version.

    I do hope they change the LMNR file opening check sequence to the "check for internal file first" approach you suggested instead of the current "check for internal file only if original is not found" approach when they hopefully update Flex though. For L3/L4, it will probably always follow the current approach.
