I have Lightroom CC (2015) running on OS X 10.10.3. The icons for .lrcat files are not displaying anywhere in the GUI unless it is displayed at an icon size of 140x140 or greater. At first I thought the icon was not being associated with the .lrcat file type, but changing view settings or increasing icon size in any window will cause the correct icon to appear once the size is greater than 140x140 (i.e. quick look, cover flow view, etc.). Any finder views requiring smaller icons just show a blank generic icon (i.e. finder list view, the title bar on the Lightroom app, etc). This behavior began when I installed the newest version of Lightroom CC (CC 2015, aka Lightroom 6); it was not an issue with Lightroom 5 on the same OS. I have also reformatted my boot drive and reinstalled a fresh copy of Yosemite, CC, and Lightroom to ensure it was not an issue with my OS installation, but the behavior continues. The system in use is an iMac 27-inch, Mid 2011 running at 2560 x 1440. I'm wondering if something was changed to meet retina icon requirements that may have caused this issue on non-retina displays? It seems to be isolated to .lrcat files only from what I have seen so far.
