Is this on a Mac notebook? Or if you are using a trackpad there is a Swipe motion that switched between desktops.
It's both MacBookPro and desktop Mac.
Both do have trackpads and swiping activated.
I also have a wacom tablet attatched.
The issue occurs though when I hit keys on the keyboard.
Trackad, mouse or tablet are inactive at that moment.
Same problem here, and it just began with the most recent LR update.
Happening frequently and consistently, both on my iMac (single display), and my macBook pro with external monitor. I have LR on Desktop 3, and it jumps right back to Desktop 1 frequently, repeatedly, consistently...and annoyingly.
Also note it happens regardless of built in keyboard and track pads, or external bluetooth keyboard and mice. It seems to happen - may just be coincidence but SEEMS to happen - on interface changes in LR, For example, I'll hit D to go to develop, then G to go back to the Library grid, and boom- there goes the desktop back to Desktop 1. So I'll swipe back over, and it'll happen again when I hit D for develop, or when I select a few and then hit N to compare them... So interface changes that like that seem to trigger it nearly every time.
But it also just happened when I went to manually enter an exposure value in the Develop module, AND when I went to switch back to Desktop 1 to type this paragraph, it jumped BACK to Desktop 3 (where LR is) 3 times!
OS and all Adobe products fully up to date on both systems.
desperately looking or a fix for this as well
its driving me frikking nuts!
latest lightroom and osx, flash imac.
Nothing to add other than I am also experiencing this issue. It is driving me insane!
In the same boat. Adobe needs to do something about this.
No other work around have helped. For reference here's everything I've tried that has not worked:
- uncheck "Automatically rearrange Spaces based on most recent use" in the Mission Control settings panel
- ensure that when right clicking on Lightroom dock icon, "None" is selected under options
- ensure that all other apps have "None" selected as above
- open Lightroom in a new Space with no other windows
- ensure Lightroom is the only app running
I'm not sure this is an Adobe issue but a MacOS issue; I have issues with my apps set to a certain desktop and turning my Mac on and my apps being on the wrong desktop.
Nope, this is not the "correct answer". I disagree, and respectfully note that you haven't read my post completely.
It's not an issue that occurs on open or solely when switching to the Lightroom application. It occurs within Lightroom as well, when changing modules. Additionally, as noted, I have made changes in Mission Control many times to no avail.
I've made small video illustrating the issue. In the video I click on different modules, and when I do the Mac OS space changes. Take a look: Lightroom Mac OS spaces issue. - YouTube
I make no claim to whether it's an Adobe or an Apple issue but it does only happen with Lightroom.

I'm unable to replicate this and have to compare your settings. Are you
the original poster?
Thank you. I am not the original poster. Should I start a new thread?
Yes - I think it will be helpful to include your video. I've tried a few
settings and simply can't reproduce the event. Perhaps you can share the
adjustments you've made in Mission Control. If we can create the same
result one would hope we can undo it as well.
OK will do shortly. Thank you!
