P: Brief flash on second monitor

Since updating to version 13 ...

 

The entire LR interface will disappear for a second or two from my secondary screen if it's displaying the thumbnail grid while marking images with filters set. For example, filters are set to only show unflagged images. I mark an image rejected, it disappears from view, the grid changes and this causes the interface to disappear. It does not happen every time ... but at least half the time. Occurs, regardless of the type of filter enabled and in both Loupe and Develop modules. The issue does not hinder my workflow, but it is very annoying. 

 

And possilby related ... the main LR window on my primary display automatically pushes the Mac OS window header out of view to where I can only see a few pixels of it running across the top of my screen. I am unable to access the close, minimize and expand buttons or move the window around. The perfect click-drag will pull it down, but it snaps right back. 

 

I am using a fully spec'd Mac Studio M1 Max (Ventura 13.4), Studio Display (main) and Thunderbolt Display (secondary).

I said that it doesn't hinder my workflow, but it just did. I was clicking/selecting on my secondary display. It flickered/flashed and next thing I know the main window swaps to my secondary. The additional bug I mentioned then prevents me from moving it back until I click in the just the right place to drag the window down and back to main display. Which I then realize realized I am unable to size the window. I can't double click the header bar to make it snap up, nor can I click/drag a corner. It is permanently set to the screen size. I close LR, reopen and it fills the screen and back to only seeing a sliver of the header bar. I have attached a sliver of a screenshot showing what I mean by a sliver of the header bar.

As the subject say, my 2nd display will flash off (disappear) at various intervals while working in Lightroom Classic, version 13.0.1 (latest)

I haven't experienced this before and only started with the latest LR update.  I find turning "Use Graphics Processor" to "OFF" will fix this issue but I'm concerned about losing the advantage of the graphics processor on my main display.

Adobe has acknowledged a bug with zooming on the secondary display.  But your symptoms are sufficiently different that I don't think your post should be merged with that thread. But you might click Follow at the bottom of the top post to stay abreast of updates about the issue.

I see this too on a MBP M1 Max (with two 4K screens, but also with just an iPad as second screen), when switching between library and develop modules. The secondary display disappears for about two seconds.

The latest Lightroom update 13.0.2 has not fixed (or changed in any way) my 2nd screen issue and I have to turn "Use Graphics Processor" off to eliminate the problem.  While I didn't mention this in the first message, turning the graphics processor off speeds up some procedures, for example switching from Library to Develop takes about half the time when the graphics processor is turned off.

I have seen this for the last couple of months as well, and it hinders my workflow horribly. Mac Studio M1 Ultra, dual Apple Studio displays. Library grid on left side (secondary monitor), loupe on right (primary); if I interact with the grid (i.e. click an image, click the blank grey area where there are no images) it causes the second display to disappear the LR window, showing the desktop. When this happens, the 'second monitor' icon flickers on/off until the LR window re-appears. Screen recording (of right screen, icon, attached).

 

This needs to get fixed.

Hello, All

I also had the same problem in Lightroom Classic 13.2 in Mac Book Pro M1 (2021 model).

However I found the another solution without the GPU off.

I realized when I move my head in front of MBP display, the second display chattering was occured.

Therefore, I hide by covering the tape on the built-in camera and ambient light sensor at the left of the camera, the problem was solved.

 

I tried again to hide the camera and light sensor for each, finally, the cause of the problem was light-sensor.

MBP has automatically change the brightness of the backlight through the light sensor.

The function might be conflict the Lightroom.

The solution might be only MBP, however it's worth trying it if you have any mac that has built-in light sensor.

I am using a Mac Studio with the Studio Display and my old Thunderbolt display. I have had all of my cameras/sensors covered since new. This has been a problem for over 7 months now. Can't believe it's been that long since I first started this thread. It occurs constantly while I am in the Develop Module with the Grid View on the secondary any time I make changes to an image's filter settings. For instance, I keep the "unflagged" filter setting turned on and when I set an image to reject the grid view disappears and reappears. During that time LR is unresponsive. Extremely frustrating when trying to cull down a set of images and I have to wait every time I flag an image.

I agree with you. I remember that the problem occured before LC 13 in my case.

Tempolarily, now I solved the problem but it might be occured again when I use other functions in LC.

I will keep checking the thread intervally. Thank you !
