The documentation for notifications of Lightroom Mobile comments and likes in the desktop app is inconsistent and missing.

1. This article describes the notifications for the desktop app, but it mentions badges on collections in the Collections panel that don't seem to be implemented, and the badges on the photos are black-and-white, not yellow:

2. The Help PDF has no mention of the notifications: http://helpx.adobe.com/pdf/lightroom_...

They're yellow when there are new notifications since you last viewed that collection, then they turn grey.

Ah, you are correct, of course.

My problem was when I was testing, I had the test collection and photo selected in the desktop app. When I entered a comment in the Web app, the yellow badge on the collection and the photo flashed for a small fraction of a second and then went black and white again -- I missed that entirely. An edge case, though probably more common than you might think.
