Lightroom Classic: Nothing showing up in develop module

When I switch from the library module to develop, no images show up. I click on the images in the film strip at the bottom, and nothing. Just a grayed out area. 

I work on a Mac; High Sierra Version 10.13.5. Both my computer, and lightroom are up to date. Not sure why this is happening, but I definitely need to edit some sessions, and this is majorly hindering that process.

Also rebooting? Or booting to Safe Boot (shift down), then rebooting ?

Next step... uninstall, reboot, reinstall.

Victoria is right, but if THAT doesn’t work, I recommend trying it again using App Cleaner (a free Mac app) after the usual Creative Cloud uninstall, to make sure all prefs have been removed and the reinstall is a completely clean one. But do a backup of ~/Library/Application Support/Adobe so you can restore presets, etc. you may want to keep!

You could also try giving your Mac the "once over"! Run the free Onyx (https://www.titanium-software.fr/en/o...), reboot. (In Onyx just run everything in the Automation tab). Run Disk Warrior if you can ($120), (https://www.alsoft.com), reboot. If you can’t do Disk Warrior, at least run First Aid from Disk Utility. Also just doing a "Safe Boot" can clear out caches (restart, hold down shift until you see "Safe Boot" on the screen).
