Is it possible to export a PSD photoshop file to PDF keeping the layers like in here?

enter image description here

I tried saving as PDF and checked 'layers', but it doesn't work.

Seems to be a bug in Photoshop failing to retain the PDF layers: forums.adobe.com/thread/874382 –  Scott Dec 8 '13 at 16:42

View > Show/Hide > Navigation Panes > Layers To see the pane, but as I commented, Photoshop doesn't seem to show layers in Acrobat. –  Scott Dec 9 '13 at 10:34
