Lightroom Classic: Exposure slider unresponsive after up-date

Before the June update, clicking either side of a slider would make it move to where you click, and the associated value would change in unison. After the update, the exposure slider still moves to where you click, but the exposure value does not change unless you click a long way (>1 stop) from its current position. This slows workflow and is very irritating.I have to say that this latest up-date has been very poorly executed; its more like a beta release than a fully developed up-date. I say this because this is the second serious (from my perspective) bug that has been introduced. The first bug that effected me was breaking of the link to the Adobe standard camera profile for the Nikon D810 (could the work around for this have caused the slider problem. I ask because I have not tried to reproduce it with files from any other camera?).I have restored the previous version of LR CC and will continue using this in view of the problems with the up-date. Quite frankly, I simply can't be confident that the up-date does not have any more more bugs in it, and the previous version seems to work better anyway.

Also having this problem. Quite annoying.

It seems to happen when the change is a small percentage of the slider, like a 5-10% change. If you do a large change, like 40+% from your original position, the slider updates.

Same thing happening with me too. I even tried getting help from a number of people in a lightroom help group on FB.This seems to be a bug with the program. I thought it was my computer!! It's making my work flow so much more difficult just based on the fact that it have to move every slider WAY father than I want it to move. Hope this gets fixed soon.

Yep, seeing the same too. I thought my laptop had slowed down overnight. When you load a photo there is a little "waiting" icon in the bottom-right, which is "GPU Rendering", once that goes away the exposure slider is responsive again.

I am having the same problem when using the sliders. I was on the phone with tech support last Thursday for 45 minutes. I allowed them to view my screen and settings. I showed them how unresponsive the sliders are after each of their attempts to correct this.
From what I've been reading this is a major issue and Adobe will not admit it is their program. I have a brand new Mac Book Pro, so there is no way a hardware deficiency on my end.
I feel like this upgrade is very similar to almost all Windows upgrades, a lot of flash with no function .

Same here. Everything is up-to-date in terms of my computer software and Adobe software, and I am having issues (with Lightroom though, I haven't even tried Photoshop yet) ever since the latest update: various sliders are not reflecting my changes (the number goes where I want it to but nothing changes on the images.) I'm all for updates, but not if they mess things up that were working just fine and slow down my workflow and productivity. I've got some impatient clients I'd like to keep happy. Feeling frustrated, because it's slowing down my ability to work. Please fix this asap.

Details:
I'm on a 2011 MacBook Pro
Running OS X Yosemite 10.10.3
Just did the June update for all Adobe software
Yes I have restarted both the program and the computer
No issue before, only since the update

I'm feeling frustrated, because I have thousands of images to edit and some impatient clients. This slows me way down and makes me look bad. Things were working fine. Please don't release an update if it will bring problems.

SAME HERE. This is hugely impacting my workflow and happened as soon as I updated to LR 6.1 Standalone.

The worst past about Adobe's way of pushing out updates for CC/Standalone is that there is no clear or easy way to downgrade to a previous version through the Adobe software. Yeah, I could do Time Machine or some sort of restore, but if Adobe is forcing updates, they need to provide *exceptional* customer service to work out the bugs for the professionals that depend on their software.

The only thing saving me is using Pfixer and MIDI controller to make adjustments. Apparently, that is still working normally, but clicking-and-sliding through the UI is not.

Try turning off the GPU under the Performance tab in the Preferences menu. It seems to have made a difference to me.

No dice... Tried many different working iterations of GPU on/off, Smart Previews, Nik Software uninstalled, plugins disabled, and resizing windows.

There appear to be some other threads on this issue.

See for example: http://feedback.photoshop.com/photosh...

It seems as though this issue might be confined to Macs. If so, I would suggest that others do what I did.

I used Time Machine to restore the version of LR CC that was on my computer (2014 Mac Book Pro) a couple of hours before I updated to the latest version (9.1). I did not replace the new version, but restored the old version in addition to the new (so that I could try fixing the new version at the same time as using the old). As I mentioned in my first post, the previous version of LR CC (version 9.0), as restore on my computer, works just fine.

I would think most people installed the update without you diligence, myself included.
Cudos for having a working copy while Adobe denies any issues with their software.
The important thing here is not to let them off the hook for releasing a very poor update. We all have to keep on Adobe to fix this and not force it on us that because we own Macs...oh well.
I am a new Mac user I have a 2 month old Mac Book Pro. My reason was to get away from my Windows PC for my editing. All current or ex-windows users have seen this type of update from Windows before. It looks great on paper and during the hype, yet fails miserably when called on to function.
Come on Adobe find a fix!!!

The good thing is that they just need to fix the universal slider control, and we'll be good.
