Images on LR Mobile in iPad not displaying properly - looks like a Smart Preview problem, perhaps?

I use LR Classic, Photoshop and LR Mobile, all updated to the latest versions.


I occasionally notice that an image, a TIF file, syncronised from a collection in LR Classic is not always displaying properly in LR Mobile.


I today also notieced that the same image does look correct in the Develop module in LR Classic either.


When I say that an image is not displaying correctly I mean that it looks like the latest changes I made in Photoshop are not being reflected properly, particularly with respect to layers. If I open the image in Photoshop it is all correct.


I have just deleted and recreated the Smart Preview for the image. This has fixed the way the image displays in the Develop module in LR Classic but this has not been reflected in LR Mobile.


I am not sure whether or not this is a feature or a bug but any help would be appreciated.



Mobile, Problem or error, Sync
