    Strange problem when computer wakens from sleep mode

    I do too, and my computer sleeps rather than hibernates. On the other hand, waking from hibernation is probably quicker than opening LRC. You'd have to check that.

    Strange problem when computer wakens from sleep mode

    It could be that Windows wakes up LRC before it reconnects to your external drives. Lightroom looks for its catalogue and gets no response because the drive is still "sleeping." You could try Hibernating rather than Sleeping and see if that makes a difference.

    Full screen culling

    Shift-tab will close all the side panels, leaving lots more room for your image. The flags, colour label, and stars, will still be visible as long as your task bar is showing. It isn't quite full-screen, but it's close.

    Thanks for having me!

    It could be that you're starting LRC with an icon on your desktop that still refers to an ancient version. What happens when you double-click directly on your LR catalogue?

    Develop module Linear Gradient - Purpose of moving the vertical line?

    Moving the line sideways moves the centre of rotation. I think it has always worked that way.

    Is it possible to export a photo without external hard drive plugged in?

    You'll need to generate smart previews for the images that you're considering exporting. These are considerably smaller than your raw files, and they are smaller in pixel dimensions. They will take up some disk space. How much space you're willing to devote to them is for you to decide.

    Polygonal Lasso Tool

    You're in the correct forum. Personally, I don't use PS enough to have encountered this. On the face of it, it's hard to say if it's a hardware problem or a software bug. It is an error of some sort. Are your video card drivers up-to-date? How much free space do you have on your system disk?

    The name fonts and location covers ~ 20% of the image. Shouldnt the name be located on the border of the image?

    Could you attach a screen shot that shows both the entire LRC window and the problem?

    The name fonts and location covers ~ 20% of the image. Shouldnt the name be located on the border of the image?

    I can make LRC do that, but only if the Lightroom window doesn't fill the screen and I have chosen "Fill" instead of "Fit" in the Navigator panel. It isn't a bug.

    Smart Collection within Folder excluding Sub-folders

    Rob, I didn't understand the question either. Hence my answer. Rather than using a smart collection, one could uncheck that menu item and then filter in Grid View for the attributes that he wants just within that folder. John Ellis's AnyFilter plugin might do the trick, if grid view filters...

    Smart Collection within Folder excluding Sub-folders

    I take it that you want to show just the images in a folder, but not in its subfolders. In the 'Library' menu, uncheck "Show Photos in Subfolders". Then you can select a folder in the folder panel to see just its contents.

    Develop module Can't seem to Install ICC profile

    That will require you to re-install all your apps. It re-installs windows, and it leaves only your data alone. It probably isn't what you want to do. If you assign a letter toward the end of the alphabet to your external disk, Windows won't change it on you.

    I cannot see all of the modules at the top right of the screen. When I right click /choose "show all" nothing happens?

    There's an interface bug. If you aren't in fully-expanded-window mode, you can reduce the width of your LRC window, and the module-picker bar doesn't resize to show all the modules it's supposed to.

    Print JOB -> Print Adjustment

    If your prints are too dark, the standard fix is to calibrate your screen less bright. The recommendation is around 120 candles/square metre. Most calibration devices will let you specify screen brightness. The controls of which you speak are really a stop-gap, and you'll burn a lot of paper...

    How do I import these files ?

    What happens when cancelling the subscription service not that I intend to

    Library module Missing Folders

    The "Missing Photos" special collection is not "live" like you are expecting it to be. You need to do the "Find Missing Photos" command again to refresh it.
