Lightroom 6 CC on Macbook Pro with Mac OS X 10.10.3

When importing from a SD, if I enable the option of adding them to an existing collection, Lightroom ignores it and I have to manually add the last imported pictures into that collection.

Hoping for a bugfix,
best regards

I just tested on my Macbook Pro.
Import from SD Card 12 images into new collection
12 Images ended up in the new collection.

Then Import 12 new photos from SD Card into existing collection
Photo count in existing went from 12 to 24 images.

I cannot duplicate your results. It appears to be working here.

I can't reproduce it on 10.10.3 either, so you'll need to take us through your exact steps in more detail.

That was my fault, sorry... the collection was empty because I did not wait for the other processes to finish (smart previews and index building), as soon as they finished everything was ok.

Thanks for being helpful anyway!


PS: how do I set this topic as "Solved"?
