I installed the Lightroom 5.6 update on August 1st and there are some things that don't work properly (or as they used to).
If copy any settings and try to paste, sometimes they will transfer, other times they won't.
Likewise, sometimes Paste shows in History, sometimes it doesn't.
The navigator preview now shows a distorted image of different crops when moving through/over history.
There is now a flickering and slight jumping of the mouse pointer when using the brush tool (as it is updating history?)
** I'd like to know if there are any pitfalls if I install the previous version which I still have in "downloads" **
Also, has anyone else experienced problems with version 5.6 ?
Note. Just cloned something out and it seemed not have fully disappeared, no matter what I did (moving target & result, whitening/bleaching out etc) so I opened it in Photoshop CC and it had actually completely gone, so I therefore assume that it is a fault with LR 5.6

If this is the perpetual-license standalone version, you should have no problems installing LR 5.5.
I don't know if you can do that with the Creative Cloud version, I'm someone else will know.
Hi. I have the Creative Cloud version of LR
