Lightroom not displaying my edits after using for over 2 hours

LR Classic Version 13.0.2 Camera Raw 16 using dual monitors, with second monitor in Loupe Normal mode.

Windows 11 Home 23H2

Intel i9-19850k,  NVIDIA GeForce RTX  3060 Graphics, 32 GB Ram running at 50% mem utilisation

 

I  have noticed that if I have been editing a set of images for roughly over two hours, Going to a photo in Develop mode that I have previously edited, displays the original image not the edited version.  The only way to get the edited version to display as it should is by hovering over the most recent item in the history box.  Only a few photos get impacted the rest behave normally. Taking a virtual copy, takes the original not the edited version. Exporting the image to Photoshop takes the original not the edited version.  Not all photos are impacted just the odd one or two in the collection I am working on. Exiting Lightroom and going back in again does not fix the issue.

 

The way I fix it is by taking a history snapshot and then it displays with the latest edits. I can even then delete the history snapshot  I have just taken and the photo continues to display normally again showing the latest edits. Not sure if I have accidentally hit a key whilst developing a photo that is causing this for that individual photo or if it is a bug.

Have you considered resetting the preference file? The preference file can get corrupted leading to all sorts of buggy bebehavior.

Thanks for your reply.  I tried resetting the preference file, unfortunately, the issue continues to occur.  I have attached a small screen recording to show what is going on. I had cropped this photo to a wide aspect, but the crop and changes made only show when I hover over the history. It's really strange. Sometimes I can have a few days where I have no issues editing, and then its playing up again but not on all photos just some of them.

Thank you for the video capture. That makes the issue a lot easier to understand. That also prompts me to see what happens in my own catalog when I hover over the history states. In my case, nothing, because I had this option off:

 

2.png

 

1) I assume you have that option on, and your other images do show the correct change when you hover over them, not just that they do not go bonkers. Correct?

 

 

Taking a virtual copy, takes the original not the edited version.

 

 

2)  That virtual copy issue, is it occurring just for the images that have the hover over history problem?

 

3) If you select one of your images that is misbehaving. And you accept abandon the existing edits. Can you do that, and then try applying your various edits over again? Perhaps hovering over each history state as you move along in your post processing.

 

Select the image, select the very first history state, perhaps accomplish a /Develop/Clear History/, go ahead and accomplish a /Settings/Clear All Settings/ (or click on the reset button), then start editing and testing till the error appears.

 

I see you know how to create video captures, so go and run that while you test.

 

4). Hmmm, wondering if the catalog is a bit corrupt?? You mention 2 hours. Perhaps the images in question behaved prior to those 2 hours passing? Is anything occurring in your computers environment towards the end of those 2 hours? From what system info you did post, this does not sound like a laptop, so probably not a overheating laptop, or a power drain if not connected to the wall. But any overheating of a desktop? Perhaps dust Bunny's around the CPU cooler, etc?
