I've made the same mistake. I often use "TapaTalk" on my iPhone/iPadPro and it does not present the displayed Lightroom version. I've learned to "put my mind in gear before I put my mouth in operation". And most of the time I do. Wise words from my high school Football Coach/Math Teacher many years ago.Sorry. I'm going to have to start using Victoria's suggestion of reviewing posts in each forum. I keep making this mistake
Thank you everyone, I use both LR classic and, less frequently, LR cloud.I want to filter photos to show only those taken (e.g.) during 2022 - please?
Thank you Jim for your hugely helpful advice. I've now changed from automatic to manual.In the Lightroom Preferences>Interface tab, there's a "Panel Tracks" option which has two choices: "Automatic" or "Manual". Manual means that the user controls the opening and closing of both the left and right panels, whereas Automatic means that if one panel is open and you open the second panel, the first panel automatically closes. You can still have both panels closed in Automatic mode, but you can't have both panels open in that mode.
My personal preference is "Manual", as I very rarely close the left-hand panel (as that's needed for navigation and organising purposes).
