Technical Issue with Lightroom CC mobile: When clicking show before it gets gets stuck on before. In order to show the edits again I have to close out of the photo and open it back up again. This is a big problem. Please fix.

I am not seeing that issue here Jeff. It appears to be working as designed. 

  • What is your device?
  • Model number?
  • Version of Lightroom?
  • Version of the OS?

I use the Lightroom app and on my Chromebook and there is a mask under sharpening however when i hold alt and slide the mask nothing happens. I know on regular version the screen will change color and as you slide it show you what's being sharpened then what isn't. Is there a way to do this that I'm missing? Also For adjusting whites and blacks, I know on the desk top version you can hold shift and double click the whites/blacks slider and it automatically maximizes them for you.

If your device has a touch screen you can use two finger touch on the sliders to get the behavior you are after. As far as I know, the Alt functionality is limited to the Mac and Windows version.

Thanks for looking into this. I'm using Lightroom Android 4.4.2 (x86) on an HP Chromebook 13 G1. In Lightroom it says I'm using Android OS Version 9. My computer says I'm using Version 77.0.3865.105

This seems to happen when I click outside a photo I've edited to show what it looked like before I edited it. Sometimes you have to do it two or three times, but then it gets stuck showing the pre edited view and I have to close the photo and reopen it to get the current version back.

Has version 5.1, released Monday improved the situation?
