Lightroom has crawled to a halt.
I'm in Grid mode attempting a custom sort. Just clicking on an image to highlight it in Grid mode gives me the spinny wheel, not responding, Bezel not responding, shadow not responding. Same results on a different computer. I've been stuck all day.
Lightroom 6.6, updated today from 6.5 while attempting to troubleshoot (no improvement).
8 GB RAM
All drivers up to date
Presets folder has been deleted
Catalog has been optimized
Cache has been purged
Windows has been restarted
Up to 86% CPU utilization with no other programs running
up to 50% memory utilization with no other programs running.
In searching for this issue, I've found tons of people with the same issue, all unresolved. When is Adobe going to fix this issue? The same issue was written about in 2014 in https://scottwyden.com/letter-adobe-lightroom-team/ -- Scott says Adobe is fixing this, but I'm not seeing t he fruits of those labors. Like Scott, we also speak and teach at conventions on Lightroom, but at this point, I'm running out of positive things to say. And of course, apparently purchasing the software does not actually entitle me to technical support.
