Lightroom Classic: Problem with Collections - can't open Collections folders
I have been a long term (since 1.0) LR user (Classic only) and have had a strange situation that I can’t resolve.
I am presently an Adobe subscriber and running v10.0 on a 2010 Mac Pro with dual 3.46 GHz processors, Radeon RX5880 GPU with 8 GB of memory with dual screens, 32 GB of RAM and 4 TB SSD as boot drives. The system is stable running Mac OS X 10.14.6 Mojave.
I have 249,387 images in my single catalog and am a very heavy user of keywords and collections.
Starting about 2 months ago (upgrade to V10.0 time?) I could not access any of the files in collections. All of the folders are there (in some places up to 3 or 4 levels deep) but clicking on a folder would not open it so I could not access the contents as usual. I could ‘hover over’ or ‘click on’ a collection folder but see only a single image in the ‘Navigator’ panel, but nothing on the main screen. However there was a note ”No photo selected.” on the main screen. I tried both the 'single image' and the ‘grid' for the image display with the same results.
I have optimized the catalog several times with no changes.
I am very frustrated as I cannot access the hundreds of collection folders (1343 actually) that I have been using since the feature was introduced in LR.
Does anyone have a similar problem or a solution? I am concerned that this may be a flaw in the 10.0 release. I am looking for a solution other than going back to version 9.x .
