What happened to selected images in import

I use photomechanic to cull images, I used to be able to drag selected images into LR Classic and only those images would be selected. Now I drag the files in and nothing is selected to start. I also used to open up folders and it would have all images selected and I'd have to "uncheck" the ones I didn't want. Now again, nothing is selected. Do I need to change a setting or something for this to work the way it worked before this last update?

Is Photo Mechanic creating xmp files to go with the selected images?  Are those files going along with the selected image files into LR CL?  

It's been a while since I used PM, so I'm guessing a little here.

Are you using Windows or Mac?

Are you dragging from the PM window in either of those platforms or from the particular OS file viewer?

Windows... I'm dragging from the PM window, but the same thing happens when I drag from the OS file viewer as well. 

 

Used to be when I would drag in selected files from PM only the ones I selected would be checked and when I dragged from an OS file all would be checked automatically. Now nothing is checked, at all, no matter where I pull in from.

I am having exactly the same issue. Lucky I don' have a wedding to work on at the moment or it would just be unusable. Do we even know if the Lightroom team are looking at this issue? Is posting here the way to register bugs in the latest release? This is unworkable

Have you checked to see if there an update for Photo Mecanic? Just a thought.

Mine says it's up to date, and it's still the same... it's annoying, I thought that was a basic setting.
