It's taken 10 months to ask for help?!

Ok, so start at the beginning... Help menu > System Info so we can see your system specs and Lightroom version.  And tell us exactly what's happening.

Well, he has a point in the respect that LR 6 has far too many issues! I upgraded from LR 3 to LR 6 and have to say one thing: Working with LR 3 was using a production tool, using LR 6 is dealing with issues all the time and having a program that at times is extremely slow.
And one more thing: Face recognition!? I wasted three working days with a function that is not usable on a catalogue with more than a few thousand images and talking about doing a good job, face recognition did a miserable job for me. This function is unusable.

So, yes, I can understand someone stating the above statement about LR 6.

I fully agree, it is terribly slow, and REALLY does a bad job at face recognition. a lot of people say that it gets better with time because it learns, but after having about 2000 named pictures of one specific young girl, it still suggests men, in all age groups and skin and hair colors. It really really sucks. On top of that, the UI is confusing and also slow.
