Photoshop and Elements incompatible?

    I had been using Photshop Elements 1.0 to edit a PSD file with lots of
    layers each containing individual pieces of text. As long as I stay
    in Elements, I can use the text tool to click on the text to edit the
    text object.

    When I load and save the file in Photoshop 5.5, the version it saved
    no longer works in Elements. All the text has been rendered and using
    the text tool in Elements to click on a text layer just inserts a new
    text object.

    This is a big problem for me because I'd sent out my Elements file to
    a contractor to get some edits done, and I can no longer use the PSD
    file that he sent back to me because all the text is gone (and there
    were lots of non-trivial text elements in the file).

    Is this a known bug? Are there any other incompatibilities I should
    know about? Is there any way to get Photoshop to save in such a way
    as it won't destroy text objects that had been created by Elements?

  2. If I remember correctly, Photoshop 5.5 didn't have text layers yet. That
    would explain it. Open the files in Photoshop 6 or 7 and you should be
