Lightroom 6 causes all sorts of trouble with touch screen windows 8.1. How do i get it to function like Lightroom 5 when it worked? Basically some touch options work and some don't, I can't do local adjustments anymore and I can't touch a slider then change it with the arrow keys either.

Crop tool resets when double touching now too, so many things about touch stopped working now in LR6.

When using the actual touch mode, alt-tab switches windows, but the touch mode overlay stays on the screen and so does the histogram.

In touch mode when adjusting anything like clarity and possibly all other things with the on screen slider the image goes blurry and blocky like it reloads every time the slider moves. Forgive me if I am wrong, but isn't it important to see a high resolution consitent image while adjusting clarity and well any other settings?

I'm struggling more and more with so many things that get released seemly untested now that Adobe outsources. The new feature intentions are good, but the execution is hasty and leaves behind a minefield of bugs. In 10 minutes I found over 10 issues. :( I'm so let down because I thought the Photoshop team was at least a little isolated from all the bad changes happening at Adobe, but I see even the good team can not escape the ultimate reality.

trying to drag a zoom area when in the Develop module does crazy things like setting flags.

i started a topic about touchscreen painting not being possible in Lr 6 as it was in Lr 5. i wish i could get Lr 5 with panorama and HDR merging. i don't care about facial recognition but i absolutely need to be able to paint with adjustment brushes using my touch screen!
