Lightroom: Wrong context menu for Map pin in Windows

On Windows, when you right-click a Map pin representing multiple photos, you get the wrong context menu, showing just the command "Add GPS Coordinates to Selected Photos":


You should get the same context menu as on Mac, which includes many more additional commands:

The Windows context menu is the same as if you clicked anywhere else on the map (i.e. not on a pin).

The user tripping over this bug found lots of lines in AgCEFView.log like:
04/06/2019 12:10:05 TRACE Triggered urlHandler for id:25 url:http://app-storage:51000/location/Pin.M_N.png
04/06/2019 12:10:05 TRACE Trigger Ignored 
Tested on LR 8.2.1 on Windows 10 and Mac OS 10.14.3.

Thanks for reporting the issue. We are aware of this, and the same has been raised to the attention of the development team to investigate and address.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled No option to create a collection from a pin in the map module.

When I right-click on a pin in the map module I do not get the option to create a collection from the photos selected.

You can see below in the first screenshot that I have selected 2 photos by clicking on the pin, now yellow. In the second screenshot I have right-clicked on the pin, but the only option I have is to Add GPS Coordinates to Selected Photos.

These photos already have GPS coordinates, which is why they got selected when I clicked the pin in the first screen shot.

According to the LR online help, I should have a different set of options, one which allows me to Create Collection.

This doesn't look right to me.

Great that the bug has been acknowledged.

To answer a previous question from Johan Elzenga, the configuration where I noticed the problem is LR Classic 8.2 on Windows 7 - Home Premium Edition.

Cheers, Frank
