Lightroom Classic Doesn't Remember Last Import Location

Hi There,

I have been having this problem for a while now, but Lightroom Classic won't remember my last import location on MacOS. This means every time I import photos I have to go drill down and search through a large file hierarchy to tell Lightroom where to import the photos too.

I know this happens in Lightroom 9.2.0 and 9.2.1. I can't say before that, but I know the bug was introduced recently (within the last year or so) as it used to remember the last import location.

Can you please fix this?

Thanks!

Are you sure you didn't delete that location? That was the mistake I was making on Windows. I'd copy the images from the camera or card reader to a folder, giving it a name related to the shoot such as Yellowstone2018. After having Lightroom import the images and move them to the desired location in my image library, I'd delete this working folder. The next import would default to the Windows photos folder.

Thanks Bill,

Nope I have been importing several photos to the same location for a while now. I haven't been deleting any folders ever.

Hope they fix this one!
