For the last week or so, when I launch LrC, it opens an old file and not the latest I have been working on.
I can't find the setting that will repair this.
Can someone give me a clue?
Go to File > Open recent, where you should find the catalog you want to open.
Once you have the correct catalog opened, go to Preferences > General > Default catalog, and choose Load most recent catalog.
Thank you Per.
It is not the catalog that is wrong, it is the last job I have been working on that is not automatically reopened...
LrC should reopen at the place you were when you exit the app. Are you saying that you are not experiencing that?
I have no idea why you have a different experience. As far as I know it should reboot at the same place you exited the application. Are you signing out?
Maybe you could try resetting the LrC preferences.
Yes I am signing out every day.
I am trying to avoid going thru the resetting procedure and see if there's another way.
The problem solved itself without my intervention.
I have just had to switch to another catalogue for a particular job. When I came back to the first problematic catalogue everything came to normal.
I have no idea how this problem has occurred at first.
