Lightroom Mobile: Overlapping buttons on Samsung Galaxy S9

Hello. I got Samsung Galaxy S9 (Android 9.0) with on screen buttons. These buttons are always visible except fullscreen apps like video players, games or gallery in presentation mode. Lightroom Mobile probably presents itself like fullscreen app in the edit mode so the Lightroom tools and Android main buttons are overlapping. Android buttons hides after a while but when you want to bring them up again (to go back for example), you have to swipe up from the bottom edge of the screen and you are interacting with Lightroom edit tools at the same time so you have to be really careful to avoid accidental editing. Buttons shows correctly in other parts of the app like main screen and browsing albums though.

This is a known issue that should be fixed in an upcoming release. No ETA is available at this time.

Any update on this? It's really awkward to use the way the bottom buttons are hiding on Android.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Keep the android buttons on the bottom of the screen.

I recently changed from the s7 to the s20 and the biggest difference is that it doesn't have the hard buttons on the bottom of the screen (home, back). Most of the apps keep these buttons on the screen always visible, but lightroom is hiding them, so u need to swipe up every time. I don't know if this is a bug but for sure it would be better to have these buttons showing all the time.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Android - Tiny overlapping buttons are very difficult to use.

I'm really frustrated by the UI of lightroom on Android mobile. Most of the use comes from the bottom set of buttons. There are 7 of them visible! I don't know whose thumbs are narrow enough to fit 7 across, and I'm using a huge S20 ultra. The Lightroom buttons are tiny, and overlap with the bottom buttons of the OS.

Please follow the standard mobile conventions of every other app and do not hide the OS buttons. Don't put 7 tiny buttons where the big 3 OS buttons are, so we have to swipe up hitting our phone case and hoping we don't accidentally tap one random effect button while editing a photo, just to switch apps. I'm really annoyed because other posts said this would be addressed last year and it hasn't changed. I expected at least basic UI design from Adobe.

Not fixed in the latest update despite they did changes in UI. That is unpleasant.

Not updated in the latest version either. Really unpleasant, I'm tired of hitting the wrong buttons when trying to access the menus... Please someone work on this issue
