The color of my photos is different in the grid view versus the detail view. Specifically, the grid view (and I think thumbnail strip, thought the size makes it hard to be sure) are flatter and less saturated. It seems as if color management is only being done in the detail view.

I noticed this as well. I have a wide color gamut monitor running Windows 10. The colors look flatter on the grid view than they do in the detail view. Really messes up my workflow.

In the Edit view you are looking at the image in the Melissa RGB Color Space. Grid view images are in the DisplayP3 space. Some of what you are seeing is a modest difference in the color space. We do have an open issue regarding color correction in the Grid views.

Thanks for confirming, Rick. This is definitely a problem in my workflow. In grid view things look like a problem (I looked again and the colors are actually over saturated in grid view) so I go to try to fix the image, but then in details view I realize it was a false alarm. Really frustrating.
