Each time I add or remove a photo from a collection (or create a copy of a photo already in the collection) the following happens automatically.
This happens each and every time. The collection isn't a synced one (no sync symbol beside it). I have placed a number of photos in it but I want to create new copies of each photo and remove the originals, so I maybe have to go through this process 40-50 times just to create a small collection.
It is exceedingly irritating. I can't believe that Adobe would create the software without an option to turn off what is essentially, someone peering over your shoulder who occasionally grabs the mouse off you and suggests what you should do, however I cannot find the option. Any help?
Can't provide a solution (not sure there is one), but I wholeheartedly agree with you: it's very irritating. I get this behaviour every time I create a new virtual copy.
I've also searched unsuccessfully for an option to switch this behaviour off. I think this was new for 2015.7.
