Map module How to make searches with Map module

Feb 27, 2008
Pori, Finland
Lightroom Experience
Lightroom Version
Operating System: Windows 10
Exact Lightroom Version (Help menu > System Info): Lightroom Classic version: 7.1

My catalog is rather big (about 200 000) pictures. Today I tried to make a search of photos taken in a certain
place (among whole catalog). Firs time LR crashed. Second time I succeeded, bu it was very slow and clumsy. Zooming the map or changing location caused that the tags disappeared and then it took long time to load them again. And so on.

If there were a way to first choose the region and then load markers it could be a handy way to make searches by location but that does not work because LR automatic changes location if you change for example the folder.

Any solution?
