Lightroom: When I resize my right panel, the controls get screwed up in Develop. Where I click no longer lines up with what moves in the sliders. It has become out of alignment.

Which Mouse you are using? I cannot duplicate on my MBPr.

I can make the Exposure Slider misbehave on a MBA with a 27 External Monitor but all the other sliders are ok.

Sorry, it is not all of them, but just exposure and contrast. I am using 27" iMac.

I can see it with my Mac Book Pro (Retina) with the trackpad. We'll investigate.

When resizing develop toolbar in develop mode the sliders respond as if the it wasn't resized, so they jump around and necessitate a program restart before the tool slider work correctly again. First noticed on LR 5.0.

In the Lightroom develop module, sliders jump about when I try to click on them.
This happens after I re-size the window by dragging to the left in order to make the sliders longer. Closing and re-opening LR reduces the problem, but there is still a slight (~0.05) change in the value when the slider is clicked on. More disturbing, resizing the right panel brings the problem back, with very large jumps. For example, my Exposure value changed +5 units when I clicked on the slider after widening the panel.

The magnitude of the jump seems to be related to the relative size of the right-hand area (if adjusted by the user). Restarting the program after adjusting the size of that area helps, but there is still a jump when clicking on the slider control button. In my case, it happens with both an Apple Magic Mouse (wireless, Bluetooth), and a Wacom tablet (wired, USB connection).

Troubleshooting the hardware did not work:
Disconnected the Wacom tablet, used the Bluetooth mouse: Slider jumps.
Turned off the Bluetooth mouse, used the Wacom tablet: Slider jumps.
Turned Bluetooth off on the computer, used the Wacom tablet: Slider jumps.
With Bluetooth off, disconnected the Wacom tablet, plugged in a USB mouse: Slider jumps!

LR 5.7 from CC
27" (late 2012) iMac running Yosemite
Problem happens with either Apple Magic Mouse or Wacom Intuos tablet (with the latest driver, 6.3.10w2), and with a generic USB mouse.
Deleting the Preferences file did not solve the problem.

I thought the standard sensitivity of the sliders is too hight. With just pixels of movement of a slider I can apply pretty big effects.

In order to have more precise control, I tried to resize the width of the adjustments panel on the right. This would make the sliders longer, so allow for more control.

But when I do so I noticed that the sliders do not work properly anymore. When you click them they jump to extremes.

I'm running Lightroom latest version on OSX latest version.

Yes, exactly what some of us have posted. Still no fix, though.

I may have found a workaround: If you click the triangle to make the panel disappear and then again to have it reappear, it looks like this fixes the slider issue.

Well, that does not work for me. I tried it on several of the panels, no dice. I tried it in both Solo Mode and regular mode, no dice. I tried Collapsing All and then Reopen All, still no dice.

I think he's talking about hiding and showing the entire right panel using the triangle in the vertical middle of the righthand side, not an individual section expand-collapse triangle like I think you're talking about.

OK, thanks. But, I just tried that as well, same results. The sliders jump when I click on the triangle.

I'm not sure how I did it, but it did the job for me. Could you try hiding the panel and then double-clicking that triangle a few times?

Donovan, I just tried that, did not fix the problem for me. Single click, double click, several times, no change. The magnitude and sign of the slider jump seems completely random.

If you look at the top of the thread, you will see that the status says "Acknowledged."

This suggests Adobe has duplicated the issue for themselves. What they can do about it is unknown.

Doesn't hurt to try to find a workaround while Adobe looks into it.

I was watching a video tutorial by Julieanne Kost on the new Lightroom CC features and I noticed that she has the same issue (although she made no mention of it).

When she clicked on the Exposure slider triangle, the value jumped to +0.10 in one case and +0.15 in another. She quickly moved the slider to the value she wanted to use in her tutorial (a negative value).

LR 2015.2 is very much broken for me, and this is new with the new release of LR. Sliders are unresponsive, panel window cannot be re-sized, and none of the above workarounds are working for me. MBPr with Yosemite, 8GB RAM, trackpad and bluetooth mouse (Microsoft Presenter), with trackpad actually the worse.

Lawrence,

Have you tried resetting preferences? Close Lightroom, hold down [Alt/Opt]+[Shift] and relaunch Lightroom. Overwrite/Discard preferences when prompted.

Does this change your slider/window response?

Okay, preferences have been reset. Library module seems to be better. Before, even moving from one image to the next was dicey, and the highlight on the filmstrip didn't always agree with the image in the main window. Now that's fixed.

The sliders, however, now don't slide at all. I can click along the spectrum to make a change, and the change actually occurs, but the slider stays put and the value stays at zero ... until ... maybe 30 seconds later the slider and value jump to the correct (I think) position and value.

I talked with a fellow photographer, who had similar problems. He completely uninstalled LR and reinstalled from the CC menu. Problem solved. Unless you recommend not to, this will be my next approach.

Update: Uninstalling and reinstalling clean seems to have done it. Sliders are occasionally a bit funky, but overall, I'm back in business.
