Lightroom Classic: Wish for a "cancel" button on "Back Up Catalog" box

If I had only one wish for the next Lightroom update, it would be a cancel button on the last dialog when you close a catalog. I like the reminder to back up each time, but sometimes I click quit too soon or by accident. It would be great if the "Back Up Catalog" dialog included "cancel" next to "Skip this time" and "back up." Thanks.

Adobe products are tools I make my living with.  My clients choose me based on can you do it, how novel and tight is your solution and how fast can you do it.  The solution they gave us to this shortcoming is not efficient.

Time is money, generally the longer it takes me to do something the less money I make.  And I have clients that often need something on a deadline.   I need solutions that always work.  The new Content Aware Fill tool in Ps is a classic example- it allows me to do better work faster, but it is very buggy and for now that is costing me more time and almost made me miss a deadline when it locked up  Ps. Not well done, it was launched before it was ready. I have figured out how to get around the bugs, but I am now back to waiting for a point release after upgrades, they bit me again.

My opinion on this fix, as a paying customer who uses this to make a living, is it's a joke.  That is my opinion.  You are entitled to yours also.  It may be fine for a hobbyist who is in the software infrequently.  I do not know Adobe's pro/hobbyist mix of customers, keeping them happy  may be all they care about. it may be other professionals are fine with it.  I am not. My customers are demanding,  so am I.

They fixed the server busy error, finally.  I won't ring the bell on that one either, it should have been done years ago.

ditto! I (far too often) accidentally hit CMD Q instead of CMD A if you hands haven't been on the keyboard. Now I've got to wait for the app to quit, then launch again just so I can continue the task I was in the middle of. Glad I'm not the only one scratching my head on this one (for years!).

Hey, it already exists, but it was not necessary to cancel this dialog, sorry my LR is in French!

So reset your preferences .... And if you work with older versions, then, pay the subscription and update!
