For some reason, after I right click an images and select CREATE VIRTUAL COPY I am unable to see any copy.   LR seems to do something when I click, but no 2nd version is visable. 

 

I've done this hundreds of times before, but haven't used lightroom in a few months.  So wondering -- is ths a bug in the current version??    (LR Classic on Win10, all software up to date.)

 

Would appreciate any help or suggestions for troubleshooting!

 

Thanks.

Not a bug! It is working for me. (And to create VCs I prefer the keyboard shortcut- [Ctrl+']  )

By chance do you have a Filter set that will only show 'Master' files?  [Ctrl+L] will toggle filters on/off.

Or are you viewing a Smart Collection that may not include VCs?

Also try a Preference File reset.- Preferences Reset

Thank for your help.  Tried Ctrl-L and made sure library filters were off.   No change.

But when I try Ctrl+], it rotates the selected image a quarter turn clockwise!  Are we in the same version? 

Haven't changed any preferences, but will look at that reset next.

The KB shortcut for a Virtual Copy is Ctrl + the apostrophe keyCtrl+'

(Sorry my square brackets misled you!)

Old typists (like me) would identify  the double apostrophe { " } as meaning "Ditto" - ie. 'Copy the line above'. So in LrC- Ctrl + the apostrophe key is 'Copy the image'.

And yourVCs are still not appearing? Can you describe in detail your workflow and settings.

Even a screen-clip of your LrC window might help.
