Made an update to 7.2 yesterday and want to say to Adobe thank you for finally adding a search bar to the folder area!! I have seriously been waiting for that functionality for years :)

Now if we can only get it to work properly. Most everything else seems to be functioning pretty normal for me since the update but if I try to use the folder search everything goes to hell. First it is super slow and unresponsive... it takes about 30 seconds to return any results. Then after I have tried to use it all other areas of Lightroom start bugging out. Cannot rotate photos, cannot label or tag, I get a spinning wheel. I can browse around and etc. like normal but the system logs Lightroom as "not responding" eventually I have to force quit Lightroom and relaunch the program. Then everything is normal until I try to folder search again. Then repeat the whole process above. Guess I will have to stay out of the awesome new "feature" until Adobe gets it resolved. 

One other note while we are at it. The progress bars for export behavior has changed and I do not like it. The progress bar used to be very accurate. If I exported 8 photos for example it would progress as expected in chunks and photos would begin appearing as the bar reached completion the last photo would pop up in the browser and the progress bar would go away. NOW the progress bar finishes way too soon and only 1-2 of the new photos have populated the browser then the bar disappears and for like 30 more seconds the files slowly appear one at a time. This is not the expected behavior and should be looked into.

Please fix both of these issues and release an update ASAP!

So this update has stopped me using LR.  Where do I get help?

Hey Bryan,

I assume you have already retried the install. This issue is usually an issue with replacing the current shortcuts to the application's actual location on Windows because of permissions to those various shortcut locations. For example, if the Creative Cloud has too little permissions to your Desktop and you currently have a Desktop shortcut to Lightroom Classic CC there, it could throw this error.

There's several things you could try here:
  1. Delete the existing shortcuts and try the installation again.
  2. Create a Local Administrator Account to see if the new account is able to create the necessary shortcut. Details on how to set up a new Local Administrator Account can be found at Adobe troubleshooting: Creating an admin account in Windows.
  3. Contact Adobe Customer Support so the correct permissions can be set for you.
Let me know if you have any issues with this,
Melissa

I have tried the new edited/unedited filter, which could be very useful. BUT, every image which is imported to Lightroom Classic via Lightroom mobile (e.g. images taken with the iPhone) is marked as edited, even if there are no edits. I would consider this behaviour a bug, which makes the feature much less useful as it could be.

As a Lightroom Classic user, who embraced the mobile workflow just as Adobe marketing pushed me to the last couple of years, I need a consistent and performant mobile workflow. I would really appreciate, if the product development of Lightroom would rethink their decision to cut off the further development of the sync between Lightroom Classic and Lightroom CC. Features like the "edit/unedit filter" or "making a collection set from folder hierarchy" are not very usable or useful with the current state of syncing.

I am having big performance issues while running with 7.2 on Windows.
- LR directory including videos are really laggy.
- Just going through unedited photo in any album - I see the CPU usage increase to up to 80-100% on all threads. CPU temperature increase to up to 90C+. This cause Cpu frequency throttling to up to 700Mhz on my i7 7700HQ.

I am not able to replicate this issue on an old Mac book pro running LR 7.0. On this version/OS, everything is running flawlessly with Idle CPU > 55%, no throttling.

I have posted details here: https://feedback.photoshop.com/photoshop_family/topics/lightroom-really-slow-on-dell-xps-15-9650 (see my post + my last comment).
