My Lightroom (LR6, Yosemite) is all garbled up. Today I went to an existing book project and after some time I noticed the user interface does dot respond correctly. Clicking a file shows a different file for instance; can't see a full spread.
Examples of garbling it all up:
Indeed: a nightmare.
I only have some 4.000 (of 50.000) files in LR (other, previous editor was Capture One)
Until today the only slight problem was that a preview sometimes showed a different picture until I clicked it ( an old picture from elsewhere in the file system). So that looked like a catalogue index problem. But I can live with that.
I restarted Lightroom - no solution; I restarted the computer - no solution, looks worse even.
LR with its catalogue is on an SSD, the main files are on a HD and some are on a NAS.
What to do: reinstall LR?
Indeed some prefs issue.
Ahh, I found it: I had changed my preferences/hardware acceleration - to off, and that messed it all up.
Reset preferences to 'use GPU', such that the graphics card does kick in, and everything is back to "normal" . [And for those who understand, I did not have to go to the Autobahn; when I started LR over again it allowed me to first go to prefs.]
