Still broken in Lightroom 5.4 on Mac/Mavericks. When running a slideshow, the left/right arrow keys do not work to go back and forth in the slideshow.

Though I am glad to see you finally fixed the color profile problem on slideshows.

Cross-referencing the 6 threads about this topic, dating back 4 years ago (I don't think the threads should be merged, since that would lose the replies and likes on each):

I posted the same problem more than 1 year ago. It seems to be that ADOBE until know unfortunally will not repair this Problem.

Please do it now.

Hi there,

I just updated to the latest version (LR 5.7) and unfortunately the bug wasn't fix again!

Could you please!!! hurry up fixing this issue? Why does it take ages to solve this problem? It's known for over 7 months.

This forward/back buttons are disabled when viewing video based Presentations in Lightroom CC/Lightroom 6.

Hah? The reported problem is about still picture slideshows in LR 5 and is really annoying.

Oops, I misunderstood Jeffrey's comment (sorry). The original problem has been fixed! The left- and right-arrows move to the previous next photo in the show, regardless of whether it's playing automatically. Hurray!
