Lightroom Classic: Color Coding photos in fails to show

After editing photos using Lightroom Classic on a Macbook Pro I use the color coding for filtering the images for future use. After doing a few photos with no problem, subsequent coding fails to show the color until I close down Classic and do a restart. Then all of the color coded photos show with the appropriate color. This has put a crimp in the work flow and while Classic does load up fairly quickly, it is very inconvenient.

Hmmm... another strange one. Maybe something as simple as restarting your computer might do the trick. Again, it's really tough to diagnose intermittent issues.

Again, I’ve been on and off the computer several times and it still occurs everytime I’ve been in Classic since the upgrade.

Since you have a couple of odd issues going on Terry, you might want to try resetting preferences How do I reset Lightroom’s Preferences? (obviously the preferences are called Lightroom 7 now instead of the 6 mentioned in that article)

Victoria - I tried the preferences reset and it had no affect in fixing the color coding issues. I still need to close the Classic program to get the colors to show up. Any other thoughts short of waiting for an update that might resolve the problem?

Sorry, I've been away Terry. I'm not sure I have any bright ideas. It's not one I've heard of before.

I’m just hoping an update fixes it - it’s just darn inconvenient but at least I can work around it.
