After installing 2015.8, I can no longer access Auto Import Settings from the File menu.  Is this a new bug?

I reproduced this issue using B Field's catalog today (but couldn't reproduce it with my own in the same machine) and submitted it as a bug internally. Preference reset didn't help. Manually removing the auto import settings from the catalog (NOT recommended!) did allow the dialog to open, and then it failed again when they were set again. Bug reference LRD-4194222.

Thank you. I won't bother with a preferences reset then. I'll wait. While the auto import settings is important, I can still use Lightroom 2015.8 and I can use workarounds to import files.

Thank you from me  too. I was worried about reseting the preferences in case I lost the preexisting folder set up. I'm currently auto importing to the job folder from last week then moving the images to a new folder at the end of the shoot. Not a great solution but it's workable and way better than losing all ability to auto import.

Fixed, as of 4/15/2017 with Lightroom 6.10, for me.  Thanks, Victoria and Rikk and all those code bangers, for your help.

With Harald's test catalog we were able to reproduce and have reopened the issue. This thread will be updated when we have more information. Thank you Harald.

"have reopened the issue"   Does that mean the issue was at some point closed. A little premature perhaps.
