LightRoom 6 Crop angle adjustment... (Win7 64)

Since upgrading to LR6, every time I go to the crop tool and click on the Angle slider handle, the angle always displays as 0.53. I double-click it to zero it, and can then adjust as before, but if I close the crop tool and come back to it, the slider adjustment handle, when clicked, pops up 0.53 angle again... VERY annoying!

Please fix!

Have just changed from LR6.1 to LRCC and this bug still persists... Adobe, can you please fix?

I am on Windows and not seeing this. I can click on the slider handle, itself, and nothing happens. Of course if I click over off the side of the handle on the slider bar, then the angle jumps to wherever I've clicked but it's usually some larger a little less than 10, not a fraction like 0.53. Presumably you're clicking dead center on the slider handle, not off to the side a bit.

Turn off the GPU in LR / Prefs / Performance and see if things change, incase the GPU is interfering with the mouse, somehow. Also, do you have any special mouse hardware or software or a tablet or touchpad that could be getting interfered with by LR 6/CC's GPU settings?

LR 6 did introduce a new feature associated with the Angle slider in that when you shift-double-click on the slider handle it does the same thing as Lens Corrections - Basic - Level, so basically an auto-level or auto-straighten function.

Wait, I think I've figured it out. If I CLICK_AND_DRAG the slider handle the smallest amount it'll move is 0.53. So I think your mouse has quite a bit of jitter and/or the sensitivity is up very high, or the button is sticking, and so a click is turning into a pixel-or-two click-drag which is moving the slider, slightly, with 0.53 the smallest increment when the righthand panel is as narrow as it can be. If I drag the righthand panel as wide as it can be then the smallest drag amount is 0.40 for me.

Hmm... Interesting. However, I'm always precise about using the mouse, and as this is the only slider that shows this behaviour, looks like a bug to me. I think they should look at the default sensitivity of the othe slider handles, and apply it to this 'Angle' slider. Thanks for your informative reply. :)

Either your clicking and dragging your mouse one pixel or you're not. The slider doesn't determine what a click-drag is, your OS or mouse-driver does.

Or do you mean that the slider saying +/- 0.53 and the slider handle is still at the zero mark?

Steve, what's happening with the Crop tool's Angle slider, and no other slider control in LR, is that when I click on the handle, when it's in the zero position, it immediatley jumps to +0.53!

I select slider handles all the time in various other sub-panels and functions, and they operate correctly, as they should. The fact that this is only happening on this particular control suggests a bug?

I don't see a click turning into a click-drag-one-pixel for the straighten slider or any others on either of my computers, which are different brand and different versions of Windows including Win 7 64.

If you drag the righthand panel as wide as it'll go does the click-jump amount becomes 0.40? That would at least confirm it is a one-pixel click-drag happening.

Do you have any special mouse drivers or macro record/playback software loaded?

If you adjust your mouse sensitivity all the way down and turn off any acceleration does the issue still happen?

If you expand or roll-up the histogram does the issue still happen? I am wondering if there is something occurring a particular number of pixels down from the top of the window that causes the change in mouse-click to mouse-drag.

Is this a fancy mouse with extra buttons that can be programmed to do things? If you use a different mouse device does the issue still happen?
