Exporting an artboard to PSD now flattens the image even though layered export is selected
Exporting an artboard to PSD now flattens the image even though layered export is selected.
File > Export > Export As.. > type "PSD"
Write layers - selected
preserve text editability - checked
maximum editability - checked
Same process as before updating to v22.0.1
Previously it exported all the elements as separate layers perfectly, now it flattens everything
Please get in touch with us at any of the other support channels – https://helpx.adobe.com/support.html . Since this is not a generic issue that we can reproduce at our end, we will need someone to look into your machine to figure out what is going on here.

After many years, Photoshop CC 2022 inserts Adobe Illustrator layers from the clipboard. For older versions of Creative Cloud, I made a script "Ai2Psd", which processes elements to export to PSD. There are other ways with their own pros and cons, which I wrote an article on Medium "How to export an Illustrator file into a vector layered Photoshop file": https://sergosokin.medium.com/how-to-export-a-illustrator-file-into-a-vector-layered-photoshop-file-2dcc274abf66(Edited by admin)
This could be related to a VERY OLD Bug in all Illustrator versions win and mac where, if you have a sub layer or element or group set to screen mode (or some other blend modes etc.) - it flattens the PSD. VERY annoying and tricky to hunt down.
