Lightroom Desktop: paste settings on multiple photos freezes before completing

had about 13pics I was adjusting, and after 11 it froze and wouldn't paste to the rest. Also I had tried to do the same thing earlier with a larger amount and had problems as well, it got to about 80done and froze.

Love the update otherwise though!

I am experiencing this problem as well, on the latest build. It all started when switching to v4. Sometimes when I paste settings to more than 10-20 photos, the progress bar gets stuck towards the end and only an app restart will fix this.

This is such a joke. This has been a problem (along with many, many others) for multiple versions now. I just deleted a 1500 photo project from Lightroom because it has become beyond frustrating. Can't paste settings to more than 30-40 pictures at a time. Even after going through and doing it manually, I still can't export more than a handful of pictures at a time. The only support we get is "Delete preferences" and then when that doesn't work "Oh, just wait for the next version." What a joke. You guys should be ashamed of yourselves.

Agree with Joe. This is a major issue, which affects my output time significantly. I am experiencing the spinning wheel on cropping and transforming of images - for upwards of 2-3 minutes, quite regularly. The new version of LR is worse than the previous, so I have just installed the previous version. 

Making it very difficult to remain loyal to Adobe as a professional - especially with alternative applications becoming available. 

What's your response, Adobe?

I’m still having this issue and everything is up to date for me. This slows my editing time down by so much and considering I’m editing a lot of other things throughout the day, this means I’m losing money by having to spend more time trying to paste presets onto multiple photos, and it freezing every time. This issue seriously needs to be fixed because it’s so damn annoying. “Fixed”. Yeah okay.

Well that's all fine, but there appears to be no response on how to fix and/or a timeline for fixing??  Can you please advise?

Can't believe this is still as issue. We flagged this with multiple tickets back in October, 2020 and Customer Service was unable to provide any help or an ETA on a fix.
We had to reinstall 4.0 on all the computers to get through our workload, and now even old versions of Lightroom are freezing up. Can't even copy to five images at a time. Takes hours to process a single job.

Ridiculous. Our productivity is kaput on a national level all because of this one bug. Someone please fix it!

Lightroom Classic latest version and also 10.1. 

Crashes approx every 3-4 times that I use the transform tools - specifically the Guided transform tool.

I get the coloured wheel which spins for approx 3-4 mins every time. 

Very unhelpful and very frustrating in the interest of achieving my workload.

I've recently started using Lightroom instead of Lightroom Classic... and it seems that almost all batch operations I do (either (a) PASTE edit settings OR (b) apply an edit preset on import)  do not work for the entire set of photos.   

In case (b) ... I've done 4 different imports of ~300-400 raw images (Canon EOSR) and LR has *never* applied my import preset successfully to the photos.

In case (a) ... after the images were imported and the preset wasn't applied ... I went to one image, applied the preset, did Ctrl-C to copy edit settings .. then select all .. and paste (onto ~300-400 images).   In every case, the progress bar gets maybe 20% of the way .. then it hangs and never completes.

It is taking me 4-5 attempts-- with an app restart in between-- to get my batch edit changes applied to 400 images.   Very annoying.

---

Update:  this continues to repro 100% of the time ... I should have mentioned, this is Windows LR Desktop, running on a Surface Studio.   

Build # is 20201120-1311-17d302b Build

I checked for updates and don't see any.    I grabbed a system info file but don't see a way to attach it to this post?

Same problem here. I recently decided to pay for LR, it's been two months and seeing such ridiculous bugs being unfixed for months is unacceptable for the price charged MONTHLY.

I am going back to my old ways, if you know what I mean.

Updates to Lightroom Classic and the Lightroom Ecosystem products for Desktop, Mobile and Web were released today and contain a fix for this issue.

Please refresh your Creative Cloud application and install your update when it becomes available. Thank you for your patience.
