when I'm trying to use lightroom in either the library or develop, I keep getting the select a source page appear over the top of what I'm doing, I press cancel each time, but it re-appears constantly. Does anyone know what I am I doing wrong, or should be doing to stop this. The camera isn't connected and I've removed the card reader but that didn't stop it appearing. Each time it appears the "add" selection is lit. It's the latest version, Thanks
You're not in Develop mode, you're in the import dialog and Lightroom is waiting for you to import images. Lightroom is expecting you to choose a folder that has images needing to be imported.
Also, could you share a screenshot with us?
your import is set to "add" which means it will NOT be copying any files to a new location. This is bad if your source is not your hard drive.
I've tried switching it to copy, but each time it appears, which it's doing constantly it has the "add" selection lit. I'm not attempting to import anything right now, I'm trying to develop
Have you tried clicking on "Cancel" at the bottom right?
Yes, I click cancel every time it appears, but it just comes back, it doesn't seem to matter what I'm doing it appears even over maps
Hi, I'm getting the same issue, is there a way to stop Lightroom from continually asking to select a source?
You have to cancel bottom right, But the select source screen will pop up again.
I'm using a Lexus USB3.0 card reader, I believe that being connected is causing the issue.
But I don't want to keep connecting and disconnecting the card reader everytime I use lightroom.
There is no card in the reader.
I too am getting the same issue - and it's driving me nuts. If it can't be cured I will be stopping membership......
Check your LR settings to see if you have turned on the option to auto-import when a card is detected.
menu /edit/preferences/general/show import dialog...
If you have that turned on, try turning it off. Some card readers do not maintain a steady state when idle.
The select a source screen pops up over the top of whatever screen I'm on, Library, develop and even maps, each time it does I click cancel but before long and sometimes straight away it re-appears
