Hi,
Can anybody tell me if the Solo Mode is available in Lightroom CLOUD or Mobile.
I find it annoying when working with the various tabs in Edit that I have to remember to close one before moving on to the next.
Regards
John

Lightroom has a solo mode, though there it's called "Single Panel Mode".

Mobile doesn't need it, as it permanently works that way, i.e. switching to a different edit tool replaces the current tool controls with the new tool controls.

Hi Jim,
Thanks for your reply.
No I don't mean the P key.
What I am looking for is the same as you kindly advised on above, when I asked about the RH panel mistakenly calling it Solo Mode. (Photoshop term I think).
What I would like to do in the LH panel is similar to the RH panel. i.e. being able to have the Edit sub tabs (Light/Colour/etc) collapse when another is opened.
i.e. All Photos/Recently Added/By Date/Year/Month/Day all remain open when you search through the Years.
I hope that I have made myself clear.
It is a bit of a pain I think you will agree.
Regards
John

No, there's nothing like that in the left panel.

I don't really find it a bit of a pain, I tend to use the options in the All Photos section infrequently, and usually collapse them again after use. I'll often keep the All Photos panel itself collapsed.
