Bugs Corrected in Lightroom 4.2:

The following bugs that were part the Lightroom 4 releases have been corrected. The team appreciates the very detailed feedback the community has provided on Lightroom 4 and we’re excited to correct a number of issues experienced by our customers. These issues have been FIXED:

  • Stacked photos were hidden in both the Grid view and Filmstrip. This occurred when photos get unstacked as a result of enabling auto-stacking.
  • Folder stacks with virtual copies were unstacked when moving to another folder.
  • When scrolling through the filmstrip (at somewhat fast rate), occasionally a “gray” image was displayed for an instant and then replaced by the correct image preview.
  • The Navigator Panel in Map did not pan correctly.
  • Parents and synonyms of “do not export” keywords also did not export.
  • Occasionally were unable to publish videos to Facebook
  • Audio did not play in video files after creating a slideshow that contains music (Win 7 only)
  • Image select arrow on keyword list didn’t display when keyword list contained a large number of keywords
  • Unable to edit Lightroom photos as jpegs in Photoshop Elements
  • Carriage Return in either the Title or Caption field invalidated a Flickr upload.
  • Tether capture bar disappeared after deleting photo (Win only).
  • Back Cover of Book layout had Horizontal text on spine rather than Vertical
  • Sharpening was not applied to books that were exported as JPEG files
  • Double-byte characters were not exported to Books saved as PDF files
  • Unable to type accented character in book module in LR4
  • Luminance Noise slider was unresponsive when Clarity is greater than 0.
  • Develop keyboard shortcuts (+ and – keys) no longer worked in older process versions such as PV2010

  • Jack Larson

    PSCS6 says everything is up to date. Nowhere on the Adobe site can I find Camera Raw 7.2.

    • Chris Searle

      Same here – everything up to date yet ACR 7.1. I guess we just have to wait a bit.

      • Chris, did you get finally this update? Me not.. Looking for direct link…

    • The same problem here. ACR 7.2 isn’t available via standard update mechanism for CS6… Why?

      • It’s there now.

        • It isn’t there Terry even after 12 hours after announced, I’m so sorry to tell that…

          • Something is wrong with Adobe Update Servers I see… Could you please do something Terry? Thank you in advance!

          • I ran the update this morning myself directly from the update facility in Photoshop CS6.

        • For me my AAM says always that all my software is up-to-date and find no available update… I’m on Mac, CS6 Master Collection…. Stuck with it…

        • William Collins

          No, it’s not. I have tried the std update route many times….no go…what gives?

  • Kevin Roche

    Well they announced it but you’re right. The index doesn’t show it.

    If you’re desperate you could try this:

    • Dear Kevin,

      unfortunately this beta version is already unavailable….

    • William Collins

      That doesn’t work either…all I got was some PDF’s that explain acr…thanks though….

    Just happened onto your website. Looks very interesting.
    I see the update for LR4.2 is now available. However, there is one a caveat for the Nikon D600. It says it’s a minor problem, but it might affect the image in the later final version. Should I worry about this “minor problem”? I would like to download it.


    • I wouldn’t worry about it. Worse case is that it would simply mean that you “may” have to re-tweak your images in Develop module after the final version of D600 support is out.

  • Manuel Andrade

    Windows machine… can’t update Adobe Camera Raw. (I must wait a couple days more, I guess)


  • Gerard Ryan

    I’ve changed bought a Nikon D3 to add to my Nikon D300. How do I notify Lightroom to enable me to access D3 camera profiles. Currently I have CS5 and have access to Nikon D2X profiles together with ACR 4.3 & 4.4.

  • Richard

    Glad to see I’m not the only one who is not getting the update. The Adobe Update Manager checks for updates daily on both my laptop and my desktop. The laptop found the update and I let it install. The desktop has never found it. I’ve tried triggering it directly from within Photoshop, even as recently as this morning, and it claims that I’m up to date on that system, though it is still running ACR 7.1.

    I’ve been on with tech support chat and they have no clue. Terry, if you have any way to feed this back inside, it would be much appreciated.

    • BTW, the fool reading the script in the online chat tech support (really, it does Adobe a disservice to call that tech support — it was a totally unsatisfactory and incompetent experience) suggested that I needed to uninstall Photoshop in order to correct that problem. That’s no solution.

  • Manuel Andrade

    I am a regular Adobe customer since CS. Never had problems with updates. I have installed Adobe Photoshop CS6 Extended, Adobe Illustrator CS6 and Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 4.2 (Not subscribed to any of these products)
    The problem is I can’t update Adobe Camera Raw to the 7.2 version. Any help appreciated.
    (Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate)


  • 5DMKII

    I waited forever and had no success using the Adobe Application Manger Updater. Adobe’s Camera Raw download page for Windows only list a DNG 7.2 update not Camera Raw one.

    I finally gave in and just used a direct link Camera Raw 7.2 (Windows)

    Give it a try if you can’t wait until they figure out they have a problem.

  • Manuel Andrade

    I came across this page on the Adobe forum

    Downloaded AAM (Adobe Application Manager) to my desktop from the first reply


    All my CS6 products are updated including Adobe Camera Raw (version

    My problem was a faulty installation of AAM because of my unstable PC. (It’s fixed now)
    Problem solved. Thank you!
