    Migrating from Mac to Windows

    artifoto Level 1

      We migrated from a Mac to a Windows-pc and the following problems occur :

      - We cannot 'scroll' through the (Sleeklens) Brushes anymore with the mouse wheel, but have to click on the arrow at the bottom to go to the next page => is much slower !

      - On our Mac, we could select a number of photos and than make virtual copies of those in one click.  Now we have to do it one photo at a time => again slower

      - Our Wacom tabletpen doesn't work as good as it dit on the Mac-lightroom.  We have problems in selecting the finetuning spots now

       

      Is all this 'normal' in Windows or is this an installation problem ?

      We have Windows 10 Pro 64-bit

          This sounds like a Photoshop issue. Are you talking about Photoshop?

           

          I have a MacBook Pro 2017 (high spec) and a Win 10 PC (medium spec). I do not notice any difference in the Wacom tablet performance from one to the other.

            On our Mac, we could select a number of photos and than make virtual copies of those in one click.  Now we have to do it one photo at a time

            Select multiple photos in the Library Grid and press [Ctrl ' ]  That is CTRL and the QUOTE key {" = ditto}

             

            Many functions will only work on the ONE ('most' selected) image if they have been selected on the Filmstrip from the Develop module. But it DOES work for me with multiple photos selected in Library Grid view..!!

             

            Scroll Brushes?- I don't have enough brush presets in Lr to need scrolling..!!

              no, iT is Lightroom classic cc.  The pen doesn’t seem to be able to catch the gliders on the right side

                I installed the Sleeklens collection, about 200 brushes and presets.

                your other tip solved my problem, thanks!

                  Can you please summarize how you copied lightroom data from the mac to win?

                  did you use an external hard drive?  Is the formal compatible between both op systems?

                  what specific files do you copy?

                  If the files Iike lrcat, lrdata etc appear in the same folder on the windows system will they automatically show up in the library?  Without doing any kind of import etc?

                   

                  Appreciate any comments or a link to instructions if possible.
