I see this bug since a few versions of Lightroom. As far as I know ther were already approriate entries in the bug forum in the past, but nothing happened. Please fix this bug.

To build on GoldingD's reply, that stacking behavior is by-design:

 

https://helpx.adobe.com/lightroom-classic/help/grouping-photos-stacks.html 

"Stacks are specific to the folder or collection in which they were created. The photos in a stack must all be from the same folder or the same collection; you cannot create stacks while in a smart collection or a published collection.

 

"You can only view a stack in a folder when that folder (or other folders) is selected as a source, or when All Photographs is selected. You can only view a stack in a collection when just that one collection is selected as a source. Stacks are not visible when a mix of folders and collections is selected."

 

See here for precisely how weird, complicated, and confusing LR's stacking rules are:

See here for the 2011 feature request to make stacks global, not tied to particular folders or collections:

https://community.adobe.com/t5/lightroom-classic-ideas/lightroom-stacking-in-folders-and-collections... 

 

That's going nowhere -- I don't think Adobe will ever change stacking behavior at this point, given how little they invest in Library.

Thanks John for clarification.

I remember that's there are a feature request about that, but I don't found it and I don't think that the post wasn't so old.

 

I also think Adobe doesn't change the stacking behavior in the near future. But hope dies last.  🙂
