So this error is popping up when I hit "B". The action should add the photo to the assigned collection but gives me an error instead.

Same message when attempting to drag the photos into a collection.

OK, so it looks like the problem has something to do with me including a '/' (slash) in the collection name. Devs should probably provide a warning message that certain characters are not allowed when creating collections.

I can't reproduce that misbehavior with a collection named "A / B". Many people are getting that error message when trying to add to the Quick Collection and other collections whose names don't include "/". LR 10 tried to fix a longstanding bug with custom sort order of collections and folders, and the "fix" introduce this new bug:

See that bug report for workarounds that work for most people.

I had this issue as well.

 

The workaround that I fould was to create a new collection then copy the contents of the old collection into the new one and delte the old collection.  Annoying that it needed to be done, but at least it's a fairly easy "fix".

I was also getting this error.  I couldn't use B or dragging a photo to a quick collection I created.  I copied the photos into a new collection and deleted the old collection. That worked. There was nothing unusual about the name of my quick collection
