HI, I am changing from a PC to a Mac and just loaded LR4 on my Mac. The color sort filters are not showing in the filter area, nor is there an option for a color filter in the filter drop down menu.

I am able to give an image a filter color, a star, and a pick and an x, but am unable to sort by any color as that option is not showing. i am able to sort by stars, picks, and x's.

LR4 worked fine on my PC and laptop.

Should I uninstall and reinstall the program or is there an easier fix?

Thank you for your help!

In Library Grid view, you should see-
Below the panels on the right of screen-
(and there is a switch at the end of [Custom Filter] box.

and if you have the Filter bar visible above the Grid (press \ to toggle on/off) Click on "Attribute" to see the color filter.

If these are not showing then- yes, a re-install may be needed.
