When the left sidebar is unpinned/collapsed but temporarily expanded, it interferes with the Display module Info view.

 

Repro steps:

1) Collapse the left sidebar with TAB or by clicking its left edge.

2) Switch to one of the Display module modes: press E, C or N

3) Enable one of the image Info display modes: press I

4) Hover over the sidebar's left edge so it expands

 

The sidebar partially covers the image area, but not the Info overlay which renders over the top of the sidebar, creating a visual mess.

 

Incredibly, when I had an Adobe Support operative look at this last night, they told me this is working as designed. I really hope that was a mistake.

 

Windows 10

Lightroom Classic 11.1

 

Other users on DPReview forums have confirmed they also get this issue.

Transferred from bugs to discussions.

 

This appears to be as-designed behavior. If you would like to request a change to this behavior, please submit a feature request (Idea) to see if others would like the change as well.

Hi Rikk, I'm not sure you have understood the issue. It isn't that the sidebar opens over the image area rather than pushing it across to the right (as it does when it is permanently opened), the issue is that when the info overlay is enabled in the image area and the sidebar expands over the image area, the info overlay is not obscured by the sidebar like the rest of the image area is, and is instead rendered over the top of the sidebar, so that you cannot properly see the sidebar.

I understand completely. The Panel is now converted to a transitory pop-up element and shouldn't move anything. Similar behavior is observed with the panel in the same state in Grid Mode. 

 

If you feel that strongly about it, perhaps a feature request is in order. If you like I would be happy to convert this post for you. Let me know if you would like that. 

My apologies: 

 

It appears Windows is behaving differently from Mac. Mac slides over the Info Panel - Windows Slides under.  I will double check with the team to find out which is correct behavior and make certain they are consistent. 

 

Thanks for your report.
