When cropping if I press the "L" key the image goes dark when using two screens. If I turn the secondary screen off it works fine.
Only happens in LR 6. Never happened before that.
Windows 7 Professional
NVidia Quadro FX 580 (driver up to date)
Sometimes weird behavior is corrected/cured by resetting the preferences.
1. Close Lightroom.
2. Hold down [Alt/Opt]+[Shift] while restarting Lightroom.
3. Overwrite the Preferences when prompted by the dialog.
4. Close Lightroom.
5. Restart Lightroom.
Does the behavior continue after resetting the preferences?
Thank you for replying.
I manually deleted the preferences but that made no difference.
The issue may be associated with the fact that my Windows secondary monitor is the larger better one, so that is the one I have the main LR workspace loaded onto.
My Windows primary display now becomes the LR secondary.
note that the instructions above do not ask you do delete the
Preferences file. Have you tried the procedure above?"
I tried the procedure above for resetting preferences and it just takes me to the choose catalogue dialogue. At any rate, experience has taught me never to reset preferences without being able to recover them.
Renaming the "Lightroom 6 Preferences.agprefs" causes LR to create another .agprefs file, which is essentially the same as resetting preferences, no? And I haven't lost my original.
At any rate, it looks like an unsolvable video card/LR issue.
