    Lightroom 6 for Mac crashes when trying to open preferences dialog

    Otto G

      Hi,

       

      I just installed an upgrade from LR 5.x to Lightroom 6 (not CC). Unlike other people who seem to have a problem with Lightroom 6 crashing on startup, the application works fine for me, except that it immediately crashes every time I try to open the Preferences dialog.

       

      It does not matter if I try to access the preferences using the Cmd-, shortcut or through the Lightroom → Preferences menu item. There is an immediate crash every time.

       

      Not that I have any urgent need to change any preferences—I just wanted to check if any preferences that might be new to Lightroom 6 needed adjustment.

       

      It is on a MacBook Air running Yosemite 10.10.3.

       

      Best regards,

       

      Otto
