Additional Issues 2
After a MacBook reboot;
Zoom function still not working. Massive lag between zooming to 1:1 and back to "fit" i.e. when at "fit" the zoom slider still says 1:1. In fact basically LR thinks its showing 1:1 because instead of the magnifying glass cursor I am getting the hand pan symbol.
Once zoomed in (after I'd zoomed out if you know what I mean) I tried a simple dust spot removal. That took about 2 minutes to perform while I was typing this response.
LR is running at about 2.3GB of memory.
Dehaze function, really its not that big a deal, take it off and lets go back the way....
When zoomed in, although remember LR thinks I'm zoomed out, I selected the spot heal tool. When I bring the cursor onto the image it immediately freezes about half an inch in when it hits the image. I have indicate to move my finger off the image onto the side or top/bottom bars for the cursor to unfreeze whereupon I incorrectly get the panning hand, because I'm now zoomed out, I know its confusing me too.
Next now the crop dialogue box won't close now despite me clicking on say the spot heal tool, that dialogue box just appears below the crop dialogue box, now thats a new one, but not surprising, nothing is surprising me anymore with this. Oh and now I've noticed that the adjust brush/grad dialogue box is open below that! Image showing all these incredible new features attached. Zoom slider at 1:1 (screenshot doesn't show hand cursor for some reason) and the dialogue boxes all open at same time, in this instance I have the crop tool, red eye tool and adjust brush or grad tool all open at the same time. Thats quite a feat I must admit.
Oh and its now burning 4.6gb of Ram. Thats ridiculous. Also when In try and quit it says its still writing to xmp, despite me doing next to nothing on image largely because it is utterly useless to use. And before anyone says its a memory/hardware issue, its not, never had an issue running lR on this or any other machine.
2.1 is great isn't it....
Doyleb, that's excellent feedback. Unfortunately, Adobe is unlikely to see it here, since this is primarily a user-to-user forum in which Adobe product developers rarely participate. I suggest you post your feedback in the official Adobe feedback forum: Recently active topics in Photoshop Family about Photoshop Lightroom. Adobe does read the posts there, and occasionally they reply. While they don't act on most of them, posts there do influence Adobe's product development.
Try to separate your feedback into separate distinct posts, rather than lumping all of your feedback together. Search first to see if someone else has already created a topic on the issue and add to that topic rather than starting a new one. That will make it more likely your feedback will have some influence.
Thanks, I was away all weekend staying in Hotels and B&B's all with poor wifi. I've now been at home and working on it for an hour or so and it has been absolutely fine. I'm wondering if this could be a wifi/LR Mobile syncing thingy slowing everything up if connection is poor?
It's certainly possible that flaky LR Mobile syncing was causing LR overall to perform badly. Properly implemented it shouldn't have any effect, but there's always the possibility (and in LR, the likelihood) of bugs.
