I'm currently traveling. Internet is bad. As in 3kb/s bad. As in WiFi connection dropping out randomly. You know what is really great when you want to work on pictures while on the road? This:
The Sign In dialog appears when trying to start Lightroom. It doesn't help killing it (task manager). Whenever I start LR this shows up again because apparently I am using Trial software. Which I am not. I bought LR standalone as well as LR CC. So this is beautifully designed to throw out paying users... Sorry, I am frustrated.
You see the little spinning icon? After 5 minutes I get it to switch to the sign in page (love entering my information 100x, because I do this always for Creative Cloud app which also can't keep any information with bad Internet / same goes for LR mobile - see a pattern?). And then? Indefinite loading spinner.
I only get LR to open up again after having some good Internet, which is pretty hard to find where I am now. That means I cannot work with LR at all, you know what might be easier for me? Using a pirated version without this non-functioning Adobe ID check. This is a sad state.
Adobe. Keep my login information stored locally. Do not log me out until I click logout.Never? No! Of course, do your piracy and whatnot checks, but WARN me (we couldn't verify your Adobe ID for 30 days, please make sure to connect to the Internet or...) before signing me out. The same goes for LR mobile. Do not sign me out.
Right now I'm looking at this screen. Isn't it great how you cannot close it? Killing it via Task manager is the only way:
This might be related to the Photoshop Update I recently did? I can start Photoshop just fine, so it would be awesome if these two are related in that way.
