On the toolbar click the down pointing icon to the right of the thumbnail slider and select the attributes you want. Press T if you can’t see the toolbar.
Unfortunately that's not the fix.
this is my current bar.
I want the one that has the stars, color and flags at the bottom right that allow me to select images, with let say 5 stars and blue color code or find all my flagged images.
the panel above allows you to mark the # of stars and add color codes etc. the one i want back looks like the one below except this one resides at the top right.
Click on the upward pointing con in the center of the black info panel. That should revael the filmstrip and the atriributes you want.
Do you have "Show Tab Bar" enabled ? Go to the top menu:
Window >> Show Tab Bar
If so try disabling.
You may need to restart Lightroom. You can also use the shortcut CMD+SHIFT+T to toggle.
i clearly have something going on wrong with LRCC
if you look at the screen shot below you can see how the filmstrip is tucked under the import export and the grouping number his hidden. the screen should look like the bottom image taken from my other mac. i've uninstalled and reinstalled with no fix.
any thoughts? thank you.
Try trashing the saved prefs.
Hold down the two keys Optn(Alt)+Shift whilst launching Lightroom. Keep the two keys depressed for a couple of seconds and then release. You should see a prefs dialog.
Click the button “Reset preferences”
Re-boot your Mac.
It worked. thanks for your help on this.
