If you don't want to see that, click on the little pulldown to the right of the notice and choose one of the options to turn it off. I don't remember what it is, but you can disable Lightroom mobile. It's your choice.
Thank you! Got rid of that thing pronto. I think there are better ways of getting the product name out there than making it necessary to alter options so the thing won't flash all the time.
I think you are misunderstanding the whole purpose. You don't have to purchase Lightroom mobile. If you have a creative cloud account then all you have to do is go to the App Store and download Lightroom mobile. It's part of the Lightroom 5 program. I think the flashing that was irritating you is simply to draw people's attention to how to get Lightroom Mobile activated.
I think there are better ways..
I don't disagree, but note: they were bringing your attention to two things:
* The new customizable identity plate.
* Lr mobile
IIRC, the identity plate has long been changeable in that fashion. It was
done to draw attention to the new product.
I did not know that, and if that's true, then I stand corrected - thanks, and sorry..
No worries. Believe me, I feel pretty stupid pointing out that it annoys
me, but I've fixed it so all is well.
Got curious and checked: configurable identity plate was not in any versions of Lightroom prior to Lr5, or at least not in a way I could find, e.g. using the same gestures as in Lr5.
And I was not aware of it's existence until Lr5.4 when Lr mobile was released. - I suspect I'm not the only one.
Anyway, it's probably not worth beating on this subject much more.
You could change the Identity Plate for the last couple versions of Lightroom but it was not the same method as employed in the latest Lr5 releases. I can't remember the exact method but I had mine changed for a couple previous versions Haven't bothered on Lr5.

I suspect I'm not the only user who didn't know that, however it's beside the point I was trying to make.

That is very relevant to the point I was trying to make - Adobe may (I don't know) have been pointing us to both: the release of Lr mobile, and how you configure it via the identity plate (had they not changed the default identity plate, many users would not have thought to look there for enabling Lr mobile synchronization..).
Granted, they could have just put the mobile-sync-enable in another spot and left the id plate alone. In the same breath, I understand why they did not do that..
Don't get me wrong, I was mildly miffed at having to dink with the identity plate since I don't care about Lr mobile, but once I grokked the rationale, I never looked back..
Whatever.. (it's hardly worth talking about, so I don't know why I'm talking about it ).
