The Import menu item stays grayed out, and the Import button can't be clicked This just happened suddenly.
Mac OS X 10.9.5, LIghtroom 5.7
We don't remember any specific upgrade, either Adobe or Apple, that was installed just prior to this problem.
Lightroom and iMac restarted. Ran a great software utility, MainMenu Pro, which cleaned up the caches, repaired permissions, checked damaged preferences, and many other technical system repairs.
Other relevant information: The Catalog is on a Promise Thunderbolt RAID
Thanks in advance.
Some additional information:
I created a new catalog, and the Import function was enabled.
I restored the backup from the previous day, and import still wasn't working.
