Lightroom: Folder sync bug in 6.2

Syncing of folder is definitively broken since Lightroom 6.2(.1): when sync should add photos (which have been manually added to some sub-folders of the folder in question), then they are not imported! They are detected as being new like "10 photos to import", but when the actual import should take place they are NOT imported ("not found").

I have tracked down this issue to sub-folders: when photos are located in subfolders they cannot be imported (I think the problem also exists in the new "Import" dialog).

Reproducible on Mac OS X 10.9 and 10.11, with Lightroom 6.2.1 (purchased, not rented).

Hi Oliver,

Thanks, for the heads-up. This is a known bug, but the next release of Lightroom will restore the previous (6.1) import experience, so this issue should go away then.
