In Photoshop Lightroom 5.4 when zoomed in at 2:1 or further in (3:1, etc.) the Before/After function does not work correctly. After pressing the backslash (\) key, the Before view shows the After view instead. The After view continues to show the After as well so there is no way to view the Before at that magnification level.

Have you tried re-establishing the before view? (e.g. by right/ctrl-clicking in edit history and choosing from context menu).

I have problems sometimes with Lr forgetting the before view, not just when zoomed in, but other times too, so I re-establish the before view more than I should have to.. - perhaps this bug is a variation.

This bug was fixed in 5.7. Update your LR and let us know if isn't working for you.

Good catch Rikk, and if I may add the more general case: always check latest version before reporting bugs.
