    How-to: make new catalog open in Library instead of Develop

    Michal Ellmann

      Each time I create a new Catalog, it opens in Develop mode.

       

      That's obviously an issue, because I can't drop/import photos in Develop mode. As such, each and ever time I create a new Catalog, I need to manually switch it to Library mode.

       

      I can't figure out why Lightroom would do this, because it seems too counter-intuitive to be an intended feature.

       

      How can I explain to Lightroom that I need to have new Catalogs opened in Library mode on creation?

      It's not a big issue, but it's an annoyance that keeps building up day after day.
