It always helps when you state the version NUMBER instead of words like "most recent version" because sometimes people think they are up to date when they are not.
I will assume you have Lightroom 6.8 (if that's not your version number, you can stop reading now), and you have encountered a known bug. The only solution at this time is to roll back to Lightroom 6.7. https://www.lightroomqueen.com/roll-back-update-previous/
Thanks for the reply.
I am not sure where you see "Lightroom 6.8". I looked in "About Photoshop Lightroom CC" and found "2015.8 Release". I assumed that since CC menu app told me a Lightroom update was available, and I updated a week or so ago, I was using the most recent version. I clicked on the icon in the finder and found this: "Adobe Lightroom ".
Is there another place to find the version number?
My mistake, I wasn't clear enough.
I should have said
"I will assume you have either Lightroom 6.8 or Lightroom Lightroom CC 2015.8"
They are essentially the same version of the software, so if your Lightroom is 2015.8 then this is the bug I mentioned.
I have Lightroom CC (2015.12) / 6.12 and it is behaving the same way. The only way to get out of it is to restart LR. This was supposed to have been fixed in 2015.10, but I am still seeing it in 12. I am running on OS X 10.11.6.

It's corrected in 2015.10.x+ on macOS Sierra 10.12.x.
Workarounds are offered at the link above for OS X 10.11 El Capitan and earlier.
Can you update to Sierra? Or do you need to stay with El Capitan for some reason?
I have been holding off upgrading, but I think it's ok now. I will try it this weekend.
