Hi there,
Just going through a wedding shot a year ago. I could be wrong but I'm pretty sure that previously, if I filtered the folder to show only those photos rated 3 stars or higher, only those would show, and that still works fine and then if I selected "Filters Off", all photos would again show up.
Today however, when I select "Filters Off" no photos show up, the image area reads "No photo selected" and the filter selection remains at 3 stars or higher:

I have to click the 1st star in the stars filter twice, to get the photos to show up again:

I don't recall selecting No Filter not cancelling the star selection filter before, and am wondering if Adobe changed this. I'm on Lightroom Classic 12.3
I'd appreciate if one of you could let me know how that's working for you.
Thanks in advance
Just an update. This seems to have cleared itself up. I restarted the laptop and Lr once and that didn't do it, so I next shut down completely and left it for a few minutes before booting up and opening Lr Classic again. Now it is working fine and I'm pleased to know I hadn't lost my mind.
