Have you tried turning off the Graphic card option in Preferences/Performance tab.?
Color rating- What happens when you select a thumbnail and press 6,7,8 or 9?
Is your Tool Bar visible [T] ? If it is visible, are the Color Rating spots selected in the Drop-down menu at the end of the Tool bar?
wobertc - I just turned the Graphic card off. I will see what happens over the next day or two and let you know. As that is an accelerator, I would have thought turning it off would slow me down further. I probably should have added that from the first time I opened up the new Lightroom, 6,7,8 and 9 all color coded any particular image but I can find no way to select the corresponding color as a filter. Color Rating does not show in the drop down menu anywhere that I can see.
wobertc - I guess I don't need to wait a day or two. I just did two auto tones. The first took close to ten seconds, the second less than a second. An improvement, though not as good as the old Lightroom.
In fact, everything in Lightroom seems to be happening a little faster since I turned that card off. Thank you. If it slows things down, why do they call it an accelerator? If you know.
In response to-
to select the corresponding color as a filter. Color Rating does not show in the drop down menu anywhere that I can see.
1. Select "Attribute" on the Filter Bar and click the Color Label
2. Select "Metadata", Click on a column header Drop-down menu and choose "Label", then select color choice.
3. Menu > Library > Filter by Color Label.
Thank you, wobertc. At first, I still could not find it or any of what you asked me to find, but then I did a little googling and learned I could not see the filter bar in loupe but only in grid. So I checked, sure enough I was in Loupe, I switched to grid and now I have it.
