    Bug:  Impromptu Slideshow Sometimes Starts on Wrong Image

    John Hollenberg Community Member

      For anyone who has sometimes noticed an impromptu slideshow not starting on the selected image, it turns out that this is a reproducible bug.  Oddly enough, it depends on the number of images in the folder and what image number you try to start the slideshow on.

       

      Example:

       

      1) Create a folder with 174 images in it

      2) Click on the 4th image in the filmstrip

      3) Press Control-Enter

       

      Actual Result: The slideshow starts with the 3rd image in the filmstrip.

       

      Expected Result: The slideshow will start with the 4th (selected) image in the filmstrip.

       

      Another Example:

       

      1) Create a folder with 376 images in it

      2) Click on any one of the following image numbers: 99, 102, 109, 116 and 123

      3) Press Control-Enter

       

      Actual Result: Slideshow starts on image prior to the selected image.

       

      Expected Result: The slideshow will start on the selected image.

       

      Comment: Bug is present in LR3 and LR4, including 4.1 RC.

          It turns out that there is another requirement for the bug to manifest:  "Ending Screen" must be unchecked for the slideshow set to use for Impromptu Slideshow.  Revised steps to reproduce:

           

          1) Slideshow module

          2) Click on default template

          3) Uncheck "Ending Screen"

          4) Save as a user template "Bug"

          5) Set template "Bug" to be the one used for Impromptu Slideshow

          6) Develop Module with a folder selected with 174 images

          7) Click on 4th image in filmstrip

          8) Control-Enter

           

          Actual Result: The slideshow starts with the 3rd image in the filmstrip.

           

          Expected Result: The slideshow will start with the 4th (selected) image in the filmstrip.

           

          Can anyone else confirm?

            Actually, the bug only manifests when both "Intro Screen" and "Ending Screen" are unchecked.  If either one is checked for the template used for Impromptu Slideshow, the bug doesn't occur.  Very, very odd bug.
