I have Lightroom 6 which has lost one of the library panels.

Customer Question

i have Lightroom 6 which has lost one of the library panels. It is a program that is for not multiple installation. If I uninstall it am I able to reinstall the program on the same PC in an effort to be able to see the missing panel?

The panel that is missing is used to allocate the images to be imported to a specific folder.
Is there a way of retrieving without uninstalling and then reinstalling the program? eg Resetting all the factory settings.

Hi Ken are you using a PC or Mac to run Lighroom?

You can do a repair rather than uninstall and reinstall, however before looking to clear the settings \ profile for your user, I would start by watching the video here and check if its just a case of right clicking to enable the panel again.

Please let me know how you get on

I am using a Mac. I will try to carry out steps detailed in the video later this evening and will get back to you.

James I followed the video but using ctl/click on file handling but no drop down panel appeared to allow me to add Destination

Also for some reason Lightroom is no longer auto importing and won't import directly from a memory card.

It seems the professional has left this conversation. This happens occasionally, and it's usually because the professional thinks that someone else might be a better match for your question. I've been working hard to find a new professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right professional can take a little longer than expected.
I wonder whether you're OK with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.
Thank you!
