Ah, sorry, forgot to mention: LR6.1.1, Camera RAW 9.1.1. On standalone (as opposed to CC license). I was going to update to 6.2 but I've read there are some issues surrounding the new import function, so was hesitant to do that until it's resolved.
Please follow the below steps.
> Launch Lightroom
> Go to Edit > Preferences.
> Click on Performance tab
> Disable Use Graphics Processor
> Restart the machine
> Launch Lightroom and check for the issue
Let me know if this helps.
I'm afraid not - I've never had that option on. Just to be sure, I double checked that it was off, and restarted, and it didn't seem to resolve the issue. Any other thoughts?
Any other thoughts Mrinmay? Is this a known bug, or should I submit a trouble ticket?
Sorry for the delayed response.
Please follow the below steps to reset the preferences of Lightroom.
- Quit Lightroom.
- Navigate to the preferences file:
- Windows 7, 8: C:\Users\[user name]\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Lightroom\Preferences\Lightroom 6 Preferences.agprefs
- Rename Lightroom 6 Preferences.agprefs to old.Lightroom 6 Preferences.agprefs
- Relaunch Lightroom and check for the issue.
Let me know if this helps.
I tried what you suggested - when I relaunched Lightroom, it was more responsive and it seemed as if the problem had been resolved. However, after about 2 minutes of use, the problem reoccurs (same symptoms as described previously). How can this be resolved permanently? I previously had someone else from Adobe support remote desktop into my computer - they cleared several Adobe cache folders, and the same thing happened - responsiveness temporarily improved, and then the problem reoccurred after several minutes of usage.
Is anybody else having this problem? In other words, is this a known bug? The interface can get so slow that I'm finding it almost impossible to use Lightroom. This is extremely frustrating after having just paid to upgrade from Lightroom 3, which was rock-solid stable.
So far it seems to have worked, thank you Mrinmay. I'll let you know if the issue returns.
Thank you for the update.
Please let us know if you face any further issues.
I have CC and am up to date on everything and from just a year ago, today's lightroom slows down, freezes, and takes forever to perform brush actions, spot removal, etc... It isn't a hardware issue as my custom PC is way too fast for lightroom -- it seems like a programming issue on adobe's end. This has been reported repeatedly in the forum.

Irrelevant - we've had years of "I've got a great machine and Lr is rubbish on it", whereas people with comparatively modest machines (like me) experience instantaneous responsiveness across the board.
"Good" machine does not rule out "hardware issue".
it seems like a programming issue on adobe's end.
Doesn't matter what is "seems" like: if it was buggy code, most (probably all) of us would be suffering, and we absolutely are not.
This has been reported repeatedly in the forum.
Which says nothing about what's causing the problem.
There are a lot of people with this issue.
1) This issue is being reported more and more.
2) On my primary PC in question, prior updates worked well, when an update occurs and is followed by the program running in a buggy fashion - that's coding.
3) Most of us own more than one PC, in my case I encounter the same issue on 2 different machines both built with well tested mainstream hardware.
4) It HAS been repeatedly reported on the FORUM here and ADOBE has offered no permanent solutions that work. Every solution offered results in the problem recurring.
Your comments don't help. Also, Adobe isn't helping either. I can't honestly consider Lightroom to be pro software at this time. It makes accomplishing projects extremely slow and painful and someone back in their coding room needs to address this ASAP. Software like this should not be released. I'd prefer to use an old version, but with CC, we don't get that option. This is pure complacence and incompetence at work.
