Since upgrading to macOS 10.12.4, in Lightroom 6.10 the pane with the image sometimes has strange artefacts while making adjustments, and other times just turns blank white.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Edit for a while

What should happen:
1. The image reflects the edits with no strangeness

What actually happens:
1. The image shows weird artefacts, coloured spots, or disappears completely

This only started happening after an upgrade to the latest macOS.

Hi Paul,
Could you please post a screenshot of the issue? Does unchecking the preference "Use Graphics Processor" help?
