Unlike After Effects and Premiere, which automatically use the newest version of an element (so long as it has the same name) Encore does not. If you make any changes in Photoshop, you must delete the original from Encore and import the new one.

True Greg, but if you are working this way you are missing one of the key features of Encore.

When you import a PSD file as a menu, Encore makes a copy of it in the project folder. From here on out, you can edit the menu in Photoshop at any time using Edit > Edit In Photoshop, save it, and then it automatically updates in Encore.

The advantages of this scheme are 1) a 'safe' copy of the PSD file is made to be worked on within the project that is editable at any point within Photoshop - you can always re-import the original menu file at any point and start with a clean slate and 2) if you Edit In Photoshop, then decide you don't like it, you can undo the changes from within Encore- this is not possible within Photoshop if the file is no longer opened. This schem also helps to make projects more portable for collaborative authoring, since the menus are all contained within the project folder- just send the project file and folder.
