Hi, latetely I have encountered a problem that's driving me nuts. Whenever I import a new photo, lightroom automatically collapses the "drive folder" (see screenshot for what I mean) within the Folders pane. So after import, if I want to switch to any particular folder, I need to manually expand it.
Any ideas what might be the cause?
It's been happening to me too off and on. Not only when importing but also when creating new folders by right-clicking a folder in lightroom and using the create new folder command. It's very annoying.
This isn't a fix but something that will help make things easier is to right click on one of the photos you can still see in the grid view, right click on it and select "Go to folder in library" it will bring you to where you want to be. Still annoying but better than scrolling down a long list.
Hope this gets fixed as it's very annoying.
Does it still do it in LrC 12.2?
I upgraded after you posted this. After the upgrade it was working fine but it didn't happen very day and I seem to remember it was going on for a long time. Was there a specific fix for this in 12.2? Will try to remember to update if it happens again.
Check this Adobe page for a list of fixes. Each time there is an update, they list the fixed issues.
It still does it in 12.2
In your LrC Preferences>General Tab, is the option to "Select the Current/Previous Import collection during import" checked or not? If not, try checking it to see if that stops the parent folder collapse.
I've had it set and unset and it happens with either setting.
It still does it.
