    Huge problem with LR 5.1




      I have expericenced very bad performances since upgrading to LR 5.1.  I have been using LR for many years and never had problems before but I find this version impossible to use.  The problem is with the Library module:  it works correctly for a few moments and then stops to a crawl when switching to a new photo in full screen mode, showing "Loading..." at the bottom of the image - this loading never stops and my only option is to close LR.


      Trying to isolate the problem, I reinstalled Windows, made sure I had the latest versions and updates for everything, tested the memory and the drives and optimized the catalog:  same problem.  Below are the details of my system, copied from System Info.


      46,817 photos in 1 catalog

      Camera Raw Cache: 20GB

      Graphics processor not used - I have on board GP and general performance is worse using it

      Preview: Size 2048 pixels - Quality Medium - Build previews on import: Standard


      Can someone help me ?
