LrC exits and provides crash prompts if the Map module is accessed after an import. This seems to occur regardless of homw Map module is accessed and is 100% consistent. I am running on an iMac Pro (2017) with 64 GB of memory. The problem has been around through a number of updates and I am not seeing others complaining about it so it may be specific to my installation.
Any ideas on how to proceed would be appreciated. I would also like to know if I am not alone with this issue with the current Lightroom Classic.
That will avoid splitting importing details between the two threads. Adobe employee Rikk Flohr has already engaged in the bug report: "I am unable to replicate this behavior on 10.15.7 with Lightroom 10. However, I was able to locate crash logs for Brett. I have asked the team to look into this."
Well, just when I thought I had the problem cracked exactly the same problem happened when I added RAW files to my newly created catalogue, only for it to crash immediately I entered the Map module! So, following the steps outlined to me by Adobe Support yesterday, I created a new catalogue, imported the RAW files and went to Map module, only for it to crash again - in a brand new catalogue!
So it seems as if that workaround isn't a workaround, or at least not for long! I shall be contacting Adobe again today to see if they have any more bright ideas.
