We have a brand new look! Take a tour with us and explore the latest updates on Adobe Support Community.
First, try disabling GPU in the preferences (Preformance). Any better?
Try logging into another account (you may need to make one), still crashing?
You might want to try running a free utility like Onyx: still crashing?
Should have mentioned I tried the first two, I have tried a lot of differnt things at this point.
I did try Onyx, ran the maintenance the did the file system check. EVerything went fine, but still crashes.
There's a reasonable chance that the next release of LR will include native support for the M1 (which Adobe has promised for sometime in 2021). Adobe usually releases LR every two months, so we might expect to see the next release in the next week or two.
So at this point, you might wait for the next release. If it continues to crash after that, I suggest you post a bug report in the official Adobe feedback forum, where Adobe wants all bug reports and feature suggestions:
Be sure to include the first ten lines of the menu command Help > System Info. Provide all the details, rather than linking back to this thread -- experience shows that Adobe developers tend not to follow the links. Product developers read everything posted there, but rarely participate here, which is primarily a user-to-user forum.
