Discovered a BUG with selections in Lightroom Publish collections:

When you select several photos within the Library Grid the first/most selected photo does not display as the brighter white colour in the grid, it does display correctly within the film strip.
(I checked back through several versions of LR: LR7.1, 2015.12 and LR5.71 on Windows 7 and they all have the same bug. Also LR7.1 using Windows 10 on 2nd computer has same problem.)

This only affects selections in Publish collections (tested Hard drive publish, Flickr and jfZenfolio collections)

Steps to reproduce:

  1.  In a Publish collection select first photo (different from the initially selected photo)
  2.  Use SHIFT key and select additional photos

Result the '1st' photo does not brighten to show it as the 'most selected'

It does work for the following:

  •  If you use CTRL key to make the multi-selection
  •  If you use the initially selected photo upon opening the collection as the first photo, then shift selection works ok   
  •  If photos are selected instead from the filmstrip it also works ok.
  •  Changing to a new most selected photo after the initial selection is made

In all cases the filmstrip does show correct selection status.

Here is a screen capture of the bug:
(photo in filmstrip circled in RED is showing as the 'most selected' while in the library grid the yellow circled photo looks like all of the others)




It can cause a little confusion while performing sync settings etc.
