Lightroom CC 2015 - I have a preset to set images to "RED" label on import. When the images import, they appear in Lightroom as "Red" but when I search or try to select the images it tells me that there are no "RED" labeled image there. I need to select the images and set them to RED again manually for them to truly be RED.

Hi Tom,

The screenshots help. The problem is that in your preset, "red" is lowercase. I think if you make it uppercase, as in "Red" you will find that it works. Probably Lightroom should not be that picky! I will report this to the engineers as a bug, but in the meantime you should be able to fix the problem by using an uppercase "R". Let me know if that doesn't work.

Thanks,
Ben
