I recently upgraded OS X to 10.11 on an iMac 24" 2009 with 8 GB RAM.
Around that same time LR would hang up when I tried to quit the application. It seemed to lock up with or without the backup of the catalog.
I am concerned since I have over 600 photos for a project I am doing and I don't wish to loose anything. (Don't worry I am running Time Machine and I backup the catalog to another disk as well).
I have used the Disk Utility to verify the file structure of all my drives (there are three). And no errors were found.
I have let LR run for hours in hopes that it would quit correctly.
In all cases I have had to Force Quit the application (that's % kill -9 for those of us that are really old).
I would appreciate any ideas that will lead to a resolution of this problem.
Thank you for your time.
Please follow the below steps.
> Quit and Relaunch Lightroom
> Go to Lightroom > Preferences.
> Click on the General tab
> Uncheck “Show ‘Add Photos’ Screen”
> Click on Performance tab
> Disable Use Graphics Processor
> Restart the machine
> Launch Lightroom and check for the issue
Let me know if this helps.
Having similar issues on my Macbook Pro as well. Latest update is a piece of crap. Everything on the side panels hangs. Can't close, can't import. It's ridiculous
Thanks Mrinmay this worked great.
I made the changes and then had to force quit the app.
Can I go back and change preferences and GPU back to what they were?
