In the latest update to Lightroom the following occurs consistently. I open LR after having been in the Edit mode and click on another photo that I want to work on from the filmstrip and it will not appear. I have to switch to Library mode to get it to appear and then back to Edit to work on it.

Hi Gerald, What OS/version are you running Lightroom on?

Gerald, I would recommend resetting your preference file. Close Lightroom. Hold down [Opt]+[Shift] and relaunch Lightroom then overwrite the preferences when prompted.  Does that cure the issue?

Rikk, it appears that did resolve the issue. Several tests so far and the issue has not resurfaced.
Thank you
Gerry
