Lightroom Map Module Markers

I have Lightroom Classic 13.3 on Windows 10.  I have unlocked the markers, but I still cannot move them manually.  If I try to move them, the whole map moves.

If you want to move one of the three, and not the others, you don't click on the marker. In the filmstrip below the map select the desired file by clicking on it and then move it onto the map by drag and drop from the filmstrip to the map.

If there are two or more photos assigned to a marker, then you can't move it. Adobe declared this long-standing behavior "as designed":

The rationale for that design is known only to them.

 

In LR 13.3, I'm able to move a map marker with one assigned photo, on both Mac and Windows. Are you?

I have tried manualy entering coordinates to seperate them.  That works until I move a couple of them.  Then Lightroom will sometimes snap them together even thought they should be miles apart.  Right now the map module is so messed up, it is hard to test anything.  Sometimes it won't even show a map and says it can't load Google maps.  I will probaly have to find the correct coordinates of where the photos should be and manualy enter those.

I get the feeling that if we could see a movie of what you are doing and what is happening, we could figure this out. However, this does not answer the question from @johnrellis "I'm able to move a map marker with one assigned photo, on both Mac and Windows. Are you?"

 

Sometimes it won't even show a map and says it can't load Google maps. 

 

This is a known bug that is easily worked around. When it won't show a map, go to the Library Module, close LrC and then re-open LrC. It happens only if you close Lightroom Classic with the Map Module showing on your screen; it does not happen if you close LrC with any other module showing on your screen.

There are three videos with the exact same coordinates.  I don't know why, but the coordinates that my phone put on them puts them in the middle of the Irish Sea.  I have tried selecting just one, but as soon as I click on the marker, Lightroom selects all three.  I can seperate them by entering arbitrary coordinates manually.  The snaping problem, I figured out, was caused when I moved one marker, LR would snap everyting that was selected to the same marker.  I did not realize, at the time, that more than one video was selected.

If they have different coordinates, you can usually distinguish them by zooming way in (and then if necessaryt, sometimes zooning out one or two steps). Use the zoom slider in the toolbar to make that more precise.

"I don't know why, but the coordinates that my phone put on them puts them in the middle of the Irish Sea."

 

This can happen when the app producing the video doesn't follow the industry standards and records the GPS coordinates incorrectly, resulting in "west" being interpreted as "east" and/or "south" interpeted as "north".  (Some versions of Apple Photos do that, for example.)

 

If you want to track that down and perhaps file a complaint with the video-app developer, upload it hear (if it's smaller than 47 MB) or upload it to Dropbox, Google Drive, or similar and post the sharing link here. I'll quickly put it under the microscope.

Thank you for the idea.  I don't know what to think about the coordinates on the videos.  The videos were taken in Belfast, Ireland, so they were not that far off for it to be an easting or northing error.  To make thing more confusing, the coordinated of all the still pictures are correct.

It looks like LR Classic is reading the coordinates incorrectly. I filed a bug report:
