Lightroom Black Panel Bug fix for MAC OS Sierra and El Cap


The panels at the top, bottom, left, and right in the Lightroom user interface become 'black' intermittently when you perform actions such as switching between Lightroom modules, or minimizing and maximizing the Lightroom window.
Issue: Panels appearing black in Lightroom
Issue: Panels appearing black in Lightroom

Product versions affected 

Lightroom CC 2015.8/Lightroom 6.8 and earlier

Operating system 

macOS 10.12 (Sierra), Mac OS X 10.11 (El Capitan)
Lightroom team is actively investigating and working on fixing this intermittent issue of UI panels becoming black, and close to finding a solution. However, a fix is not yet available in the most current update of Lightroom. We are hoping to have it fixed in next update.


When the Lightroom panels appear as black on your Mac, follow the workaround steps given below to resolve this issue:
  1. In the Dock bar on your Mac, right-click the Lightroom icon and select Hide from the menu.
    Hide Lightroom using the Dock menu

  2. Right-click the Lightroom icon in the Dock again and select Show from the menu.
    Show Lightroom using the Dock

Lightroom panels should be visible now.
