No option to create a collection from a pin in the map module

When I right-click on a pin in the map module I do not get the option to create a collection from the photos selected.

You can see below in the first screenshot that I have selected 2 photos by clicking on the pin, now yellow. In the second screenshot I have right-clicked on the pin, but the only option I have is to Add GPS Coordinates to Selected Photos.

These photos already have GPS coordinates, which is why they got selected when I clicked the pin in the first screen shot.

According to the LR online help, I should have a different set of options, one which allows me to Create Collection.

This doesn't look right to me.

What version of the OS and what version of Lightroom? It works for me with Lightroom 8.2.1 and MacOS Mojave.

I can replicate Frank's problem in Win 10.0.17763 & Lr Classic CC 8.2.1.

Hovering over or left-clicking anywhere on the pin pulls up the preview window normally.

Right-clicking anywhere on the map, including the pin, only brings up the "Add GPS Coordinates to Selected Photos" menu choice.

However, I did manage to get the "proper" menu to come up very sporadically.  It seems like there might be a single pixel somewhere in the pin that activates the menu?  

The display I was using also seemed to impact the success rate.  I was able to activate the proper menu maybe 1 out of every 100 attempts on a 2560x1440 display.  On a 1920x1080 display, the success rate was probably more like 1 out of 25.
