I've used Lr for over a year, and have had no problems until now. Lr is not consistently saving edits I've made after closing Lr between editing sessions. I've changed the back-up catalog option to every time Lr is closed, but this isn't working. Sometimes if I open and close several times, the most recent edits will show. But obviously something is wrong. Anyone else have/had this problem?
So, just so I am clear on what the issue is, you are saying that when you make some changes to a photo, then close Lightroom, and then come back at a later time, the changes are gone?
If my understanding is correct, my first guess is that you are not opening the exact same catalog file each time. So, when you open Lightroom, do you doiuble-click on the icon for the program, or do you double-click on a specific catalog file?
Also, go to Lightroom Preferences, click on the General Tab, and tell us what is selected in the dropdown menu next to "When starting up use this catalog".
When starting up Lightroom I always click on the Lightroom Icon.
Lightroom Preference shows: When starting up: Load most recent Catalog
Thanks for your help!
