Lightroom: Fetch Altitude For Coordinates doesn't display altitude

The Fetch Altitude For Coordinates button (to the right of Altitude in the Metadata > Location panel) doesn't display the fetched altitude when multiple photos are selected in the Map module's filmstrip. To reproduce:

1. Select three photos that don't have any GPS coordinates or altitude set.

2. Go to the Map module.

3. Drag the three photos to some point on the map. 

4. Click the Fetch Altitude For Coordinates button.

5. Observe that Altitude incorrectly remains blank.

6. Select each of the photos individually and observe that Altitude is filled in from the map.

7. Select all three photos and observe that the Altitude now appears filled in.

Tested on LR 8.2 / Mac OS 10.13.6.

Hi John,

Are you facing this all the time or intermitently?

I did the recipe several times, and it happened each time.

Was there any change after restarting Lightroom Classic?

Unfortunately not -- restarting the computer and LR has no effect.
