Whether or not an outside app can open multiple files would be a feature of gthe app, not DPP.
Transfering multiple files to Ps is a batch process evolution. All of your questions are addressed in the manual, which you can download from the Canon site.

Yes, I understand the batch transfer functionality. I think using the word batch in my initial question and subsequent answers was a mistake on my part which has caused some confusion.
I'm aware of the ability to transfer converted images with the Open Images Using Software check box. Since that process converts CR2 files into secondary file types it's not what I need. I need the ability to move multiple raw files from DPP into Photoshop, which is only possible at this point by dragging the thumbnail images to the Dock or to a Photoshop app icon.
I'm mostly speaking strictly of the fact that it's possible to select multiple images in the list view but not operate on them in a GUI sense, which was present in previous iterations of DPP but seems to have broken in this release, which is consistent with other file-management tools which have been ported to Catalina. Catalina introduced some new approaches to file management, specifically to the Finder, which even broke some of the Finder's capabilities for a little while.
Thanks for taking the time to help; I do appreciate it.
