Disregard this question. It was my error. The software works as expected...Witt
Oops--I was correct the first time! I just tested another tracklog in Lightroom. In the toolbar tracklog menu "Auto tag photos" works as expected, but in the tracklog submenu of the main menu that command is unavailable (grayed out), regardless of what time zone my computer is set to. I believe the above described issue is a bug in the software.
Make sure that the photo is actually selected, not just visible. If that doesn't address the problem, post a full-resolution screenshot.
...a full-resolution screenshot of the entire LR window.
I’m not sure what you are looking for from a full-resolution screenshot of the entire LR window, but here are the facts:
- The GPS device that I used to create the tracklog was set to the correct local time in the EDT timezone (UTC -4.00)
- So was the computer on which I loaded the tracklog into Lightroom
- So was the camera that I used to take the selected photo
- When I loaded the tracklog into Lightroom, it appeared where it should on the map
- I made sure that the photo was selected in the filmstrip of the Map Module
- No offset adjustment was necessary
- I was able to auto-tag the selected photo from the Map menu in the toolbar. When I did that, a yellow badge appeared on the tracklog in the Map module, and GPS coordinates appeared in the Metadata panel
- I removed the GPS coordinates from the selected photo
- I then attempted to auto-tag this still-selected photo again, this time from the Tracklog submenu of the main menu
- However, I was unable to do this because the “Auto-Tag Photos” command was inactive (grayed out)
- I then went back to the Tracklog menu in the Toolbar, and was once again able to Auto-Tag the selected photo from there.
If you still think a screenshot of the entire LR window would be useful, please let me know what you specifically are looking for, and I’ll try to post it. Thanks!
Based on lots of past experience on these forums, a screenshot often reveals clues or questions we're not otherwise smart enough to think of.
Hi johnrellis, I'm afraid that your reply above is still too general for me to go on. I've detailed step-by-step what I did and the results I got. Is there a specific place in it that you think I am not clear, or that someone would not be able to verify my results by following my narrative? Is there some specific place in time that a screenshot would provide added value to my observations?
I don’t know what I don’t know. What I do know is that there are many times where a full screenshot helps us figure out what’s going on. It may help here, it may not. But if you don’t want to do post a screenshot, fine, maybe someone else can help.
I sincerely appreciate what you are doing, and I am posting the following screenshots,, which I hope will be enlightening:

Something else: There's a geotagging exercise in the Lightroom Classroom in a Book. I just redid that exercise, and was able to auto-tag the exercise photo from the main menu. The LRCIB exercise photo is a JPEG, while mine is a DNG, but that shouldn't make any difference.
