PROBLEM


In Preview thumbnail grid, I've used View Options to set Folder as one of the headers for Expanded Cells. It shows the correct folder. When I drag an image from the grid to a different folder, that Folder name does not update. It updates in the right-hand panel's Metadata section, but not in the grid.



ABOVE: View Options settings are: Expanded Cells, Show Header with Labels and Folder is the third header to be shown.




ABOVE: File moved but incorrect folder displayed in preview/thumbnail cell. The correct folder name is shown on the right in the Metadata panel.


WORKAROUND


There are only two ways to force it to update:

  • Open View Options and change "Folder" to something else, such as "None." Then change it back to "Folder." the Folder name shown in the thumbnail is immediately updated.
  • Or, close Lightroom and re-open it. Folder names will then be shown correctly.


ABOVE: After updating the View Option settings, correct folder name is displayed.

OTHER INFORMATION


I'm running the latest version of Lightroom Classic (9.2) on a new Windows 10 Pro computer. I'm using Jeffrey Friedl's "Metadata Presets" plugin to show the customized metadata fields in the Metadata panel.

This seems to be a bug. I have not noticed it before. Anyone else?

Same issue with LR9.2 on Win10. (For Grid view Compact and Expanded views)

Note: the name updates ok when the 'Folder' field is used in the Loupe view.

Rikk. I'd forgotten about this issue. But, today, I did check it (using version 9.4 now) and you're correct: the folder names update correctly now. Thanks.
