    see my post here

    while you think you have updated to the latest package version which is 7.0.3 ,unity will still use 7.0.2

    Yeah I know.

    anyway, i've posted a solution in that thread

    JPERMAN8 I agree, I have not been able to work on my PSB files in my project in 2 weeks. This is a much bigger problem than Unity is saying it is. Please Unity move this up in your urgency list!!!

    Can confirm - my collaboraters cannot even use the editor as cloning the project fresh causes the asset to not be resolved at all ( and thus the main player character cannot be controlled at all ! )

    In my 5 years with Unity, this is by the far the most critical bug I've seen.

    For macs we have not found a version without this issue. For my windows machine, the only version that works for this is 2021.3.8f1 (I've tried 5+ different ones to no avail.

    Really want to know when this is truly fixed.

    Don't let fresh fish touch Importer or 2D Skinning Editor. They may destroy assets of many developers, such as sprite vertexes, meshes and bones.

    Looking forward to this fix. Just updated my project from 2020.2 to 2022.1 and cannot use PSD Importer anymore. Will be checking back daily

    I also tried to use the beta version of Unity 2022.2.0b8
    and with both 2D PSD Importer 8.0.0 and 8.0.0-pre3 - but still having the same issue
