Newbie: edited photo settings rarely save in LR after export

Hi - first time LR CC user and first post ... 


I have installed LR CC 4.1 on my MacBook Air M1 running Big Sur 11.1. 

If I add a JPEG from my hard drive then edit it in LR CC then export it back to my hard drive (different folder) only the original photo is kept in LR. 

My daughter runs similar set up - older MacBook Pro, LR CC 3.3 and when she follows same process the edited photo shows in LR CC but she can toggle back to the original. 

Is there a setting I need to change to do the same?
She has found a work around by creating a new version but this adds an extra couple of steps. 

Also LR is opening slowly ... 


any ideas welcome - thanks!
