Masking will only add to existing mask

Adobe has never released a buggier update to LR in it's entire history. Every photography group I'm in is raging about multiple problems. 100% have had the program slow down to unusable speeds. I teach LR and stand by and support this program all the time. I have articles published about how to speed LR up, but I cannot support this latest update. You have added too much crap and it's not working for any of us photographic professionals in the busiest season of the year. It is causing immense frustration. 

The first problem that has been universal, is that the display doesn't move when you move to the next photo. In other words, I'm editing Photo A, move to Photo B (can see that I moved forward in the Filmstrip on bottom), but my editing screen still shows Photo A. Sat for a long while, no movement. I searched online for solutions and turned off Edit in Smart Previews, now it works 95% of the time, still having problems and now it's INSANELY slow.
Second one that I haven't heard anyone discuss and just came up for me. I have a line of groomsmen, each needs their face slightly lightened or darkened. I created the first 3 masks, "Groomsman 1", "Groomsman 2", "Groomsman 3". I went back to Groomsman 1 to add his hands to the mask, it worked fine, done it a million times. Then I hit the large + button on top to add an entirely new mask, and any mask that I add is now added inside of Groomsman 1. I left the Masking panel and returned again and again, I restarted Lightroom, opened it back up and still, any time I try to add a new mask, it only adds it to Groomsman 1. In fact if I even try to select Groomsman 2 or 3, it pops right back to selecting Groomsman 1. It's stuck on that mask.
iMac specs are below in a screenshot and my OS is fully upgraded to the current version of Sonoma.

PLEASE, PLEASE fix this disaster of an update!

Yes, I have restarted twice, just did it again. I'm thinking a cache or a Preference?

Re the stuck mask, try resetting LR's preferences:
https://www.lightroomqueen.com/articles-page/how-do-i-reset-lightrooms-preferences/


LR sometimes soils its preferences file, and resetting it can fix all sorts of wonky behavior. That article explains how to restore the old preferences if resetting doesn't help.

Thanks, a full shut down to restart and starting up LR to reset the Preferences seems to have done it. Thanks for the help.

Yes, based on Discussions and Bugs, probably the worst upgrade and bug fix ever. Mind you my Windows rig is running just fine. (other members not so much)

 

You restarted, our computer,  normally a nice magic bullet. But did you actually shut down the computer, then restart (a cold boot, not a warm boot)? Also a magic bullet that may accomplish nothing, but was that attempted?

 

And as an apparent Pro in the Wedding Business, did you wait for the bug fix v13.0.1 or did you go directly to v13.0? Looks like the bug fix was not so great either. And can you revert to v12 or does that involve collaborators (i.e. others with v13.0.1 )?

"The first problem that has been universal, is that the display doesn't move when you move to the next photo."

 

That severe bug is affecting many people, though based on the traffic here, it's far from affecting most people. Adobe acknowledged the bug last week and is investigating:

https://community.adobe.com/t5/lightroom-classic-bugs/p-unable-to-advance-to-the-next-photo/idi-p/14...

 

The thread includes your tip for disabling Use Smart Previews to improve the situation.

 

If you Follow that thread, you'll be notified as soon as the bug's status changes.
