Operating on an Apple MacBook Pro 2016, 2.6 GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i7, 16 GB 2133 MHz LPDDR3 With macOS Catalina 10.15
Description: Normally exporting jpeg's as I do, and it crashes for no reason. I have to foce quit the application and hard restart the computer for me to be able to boot Lightroom again. Very strange issue. My friend is having the same issue on his older MacBook. This is incredibly frustrating as I need to export many photos....
I am finding no crash reports under your email address you've registered at this forum. Are you getting a crash dialog? Is it an Apple dialog or an Adobe dialog? Are you submitting the report with your email? Do you use a different email than that with which you registered here?
Maybe it's a corrupted preference in your Username/Library folder? To reset your LR preferences:
1. Close Lightroom.
2. Hold down [Alt/Opt]+[Shift] while restarting Lightroom.
3. Overwrite the Preferences when prompted by the dialog.
4. Close Lightroom.
5. Restart Lightroom.
Go to your Lightroom Classic Preferences (in the LR menu) and go over them and reset any that got changed from the way you want them. When I did it there weren't many changes that I needed to reset.
Download it, run it, people with crashing Macs!
In Onyx run almost everything in the Maintenance tab, deselecting things you may not want deleted, like Launch Services . Hit the "Options" button and deselect more stuff like Cookies & Other Site Data, Browser History, Form Values, etc. If you don’t know what something is, look it up, or just deselect it, then hit Run Tasks. After it's done it will ask for a reboot.
