    Upgraded Lightroom hangs on import


      I updated to the newest version... Lightroom Classic version: 7.1 [ 1148620 ]


      I am on a Mac


      I am able to get the import screen, select my images, set my destination... all of  the normal stuff I used to do.  I will see the import start, and then it just stops.  The screen goes back to the previous import I did before the upgrade, and LR in general seems to be "hung"


      I am not trying to import any video files


      I tried manually copying the RAW files to a folder on my hard drive, with nothing plugged into the USB drives, and tried to import from the folder and the same thing happens...


      Please HELP!

          To verify that the problem is not caused by something being wrong with your RAW files:

          PLEASE make sure you have a Backup of the files you have in 'the folder'!

          Open a New Catalog

          Try Importing from that 'folder' into the new catalog.

            Perhaps related. What I find is that I can (very consistently) get import to hang.

            1) Import to new folder (say 2018-02-05)

            2) Rename folder in lightroom 7.1 (to 2018-02-05 -- Boys Basketball)

            3) Insert new card and try to import again

            3a) New starting number and Keywords are changed but destination is 2018-02-05


            Hangs every time.

            If I restart LR, then it is fine.
