Feature Request - Logical Grouping in Lightroom Develop Settings Panel

There are often changes to images that a photographer would want to make to several images globally and other changes that are more photo-specific.

For example, if I'm editing a series of portraits or landscape photos (of the same feature), it's common to want to copy and paste develop settings about white balance, sharpening, color, curve, etc. However, it's rare that I want to paste items like local adjustments, crop, and spot removal from one image to another.

I think that laying out the Copy Settings dialogue in the Develop Module in a more logical grouping would facilitate the editing process. I often find myself clicking "Check All" and then removing Local Adjustments, Transform, and Spot Removal, as those tend to be specific to every photo.

Having those editing settings check boxes grouped into the same area or under a larger subsection seems like an improvement on UX.

I would rather have to possibility to save presets.

Exactly what I was thinking.  I wouldn't mind seeing some tweaks to the current list to make it consistent with how things are presented in the Develop module (For example, group Texture, Clarity, Dehaze, Vibrance, & Saturation under a Presence header), but the really nice thing would be to have the ability to create presets.

Why not a more logical arrangement _and_ presets?

Of course I wouldn't mind having both, and changing a dialog interface is (at least in Apple Xcode for the Mac) just a matter of dragging and dropping the interface elements, so that takes just a few minutes. But the real answer to this question is having presets IMHO.

And then of course a direct menu ‘Develop - Sync Settings - PresetName’.

ask 10 photographers what they would consider a more "logical" grouping and you'll get 12 answers.

Agree, that's why presets would be such a great solution.
