Lightroom: Navigator preview pane shows wrong photo

In Lightroom 5 sometimes the Navigator preview pane display gets stuck on a different photo than what I'm working on in the develop module. I haven't managed to figure out when in happens specifically, but I notice it once every few working sessions.
Thanks, David

Lightroom CC2015.12/6.12 was released today and should address this issue.  Please update your Lightroom to the latest version and let us know if you continue to see the issue. Thank you for your patience.

Yes, I've noticed this too. It can be most frustrating! Switching back to the Library module usually fixes it!

This happens to me also, only in Develop mode. In Library mode it shows the correct image.

In Lightroom 5.0 and Lightroom 5.2 RC, while in the Develop module, when you hover over a photo in the filmstrip other than the one currently active, the preview in the Navigator panel changes to the photo the mouse pointer is hovering over, which is what's expected. But if you move the mouse pointer very quickly to any other panel, the Navigator preview doesn't revert back to the currently active photo as you would expect it to.

This problem also occurs in the Library module when you move the mouse pointer very quickly to the panels on the right-hand side (Histogram, Quick Develop, etc.).

If you switch between the Develop and Library modules, the Navigator preview may or may not revert to the currently active photo, depending on where your mouse pointer is.

When I try this in Lightroom 4, this problem does not occur.

Running on Win 7 64-bit.

This happens under LR 5.2. Very disappointing. Going back and forth between Develop and Library doesn't always fix it. I have seen this in some previous versions as well. Too bad that Adobe can't fix it for good.

Bonjour à tous, Hi to all !
je dispose de cette version depuis hier , j'ai constaté la même chose que vous, mais je mettais cette question sous la cause de mon inexpérience

This happens ALL THE TIME in 5.0 and 5.2. This is even more extremely annoying when you use the preview window as a way to navigate around an image while zoomed in, since you have no idea what you're even clicking on!

I've noticed this too - sometimes moving to another image and back fixes, sometimes I need to restart. The Navigator preview pane also sometimes stops showing the preset previews when you hover across the preset names. This happened in 5.0 and still in 5.2.

I think I might have found a workaround for this issue. When preview image is stuck in Develop module, I simply selected a different image using the Filmstrip panel at the bottom of the the screen while in Develop module. Could have been a fluke, let me know if it works for you!

Hey everyone, a quick question - are you still seeing the wrong image in the Navigator panel when you are in Develop module?
if so, What version of Lightroom are you using?

Yes, the problem is still there. I can reproduce it on every public build of LR5 from the 5.0 beta through the recently released 5.6.

What if you change this preference, does that help the behavior become more manageable?

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Navigator does not match Image.

Hi
I have an issue where the image in the navigator does not match the image I am looking at. Even if I click on a diff thumbnail the image updates but not the image in the navigator. I therefore cannot get an Idea of what an image will look like when I scroll over a preset.
Please help.

I can't believe this still hasn't been fixed. Last week I decided to clean install Yosemite. Nothing to do with trying to get rid of this bug! I clean installed Yosemite by formatting the hard drive first. The first thing I did after setup completed was to reinstall Lightroom 5.7 to see if this bug was indeed a bug or something particular to my hardware and software. Well the preview bug showed itself within minutes! Also the same in Lightroom 6.

Certainly lots of people have reported this issue. I've had it now for two years and it's very annoying.

Yep! I also have the same problem with LR 6.01 in Win 7. I've used LR since day one, and never had this problem with previous versions.
