Lightroom SDK 6: catalog function to get photo by local identifier

@Lr4 the local identifier is a member of the LrPhoto object, which makes it faster to access than the uuid in raw metadata (and smaller).

Lightroom SDK: Send keystrokes to Lightroom

As it stands, plugins can manipulate Lr by sending keystrokes (e.g. via auto-hotkey in Windows, or apple-scripting on Mac), but it is not 100% reliable (some systems won't allow it, and it depends on maintaining focus...). It would be great for plugins (and easy to implement for Adobe) if SDK had d

For example, I just created a new folder then renamed it 'Tree Sync Publish Service - Test Two' but I can't select it now, without selecting a different folder, then re-selecting the newly created folder. e.g. double-clicking it doesn't do anything, nor does single clicking it. (same problem wit
