    LR: Library Folder List unusable during Auto-import

    jw97224791

      Hi,

       

      (running the latest Lightroom version CC 2015.9 on Windows 10 home, but not a new problem),

       

      when Auto-import of images engages (immediately after starting up LR) the Library folder list jumps to the position of the Auto-Imported Photos folder. It does this after each successfully imported file, i.e. in rapid succession, which makes it impossible to select any other folder for which you'd need to scroll within the list. The only way to view any other folder than the one already selected on start-up is to wait Auto import to finish or to turn it off.

       

      As a special treat, if the auto-import destination folder happens to be on an external drive (my case) which is not always mounted, an error message ("folder not found" etc.) pops up after each import attempt, canceling any drop-down menu you might have clicked in the meantime thus rendering it near impossible to turn-off auto-import unless you're Usain Bolt with the mouse pointer. Otherwise, click OK two-hundred times for the 200 photos in your Camera Uploads folder, until auto-import is fed up.

       

      Any work-arounds are welcome (if I have to turn off and on Auto-import manually every time, it is not really an auto-import now, is it....),

      a bugfix would be even more welcom-er,

       

      Best wishes
