Lightroom Classic 7.4: Gradients Wrong Direction on Vertical Images

In 7.4 on Mac the something is wrong with gradients when saved in a preset.

Take a horizontal image and place a gradient on the sky from top to bottom. Then save that gradient in a preset. Then apply that same preset to a vertical image. Instead of being a top-down gradient, the gradient will be applied to the side (as in left to right) on the image vertically, completely changing the outcome.

This is a new problem and I have confirmed that in 7.2 it does not exist. In the past versions, grads saved in a preset applied exactly as they were saved. There seems to be a bug in 7.4 changing the behavior and making gradients of little use in presets.

This conversation has been merged. Please refer the main conversation:

This is happening for me too - all of my presets are rendering grads on the long edge only, regardless of the image's aspect.

i.e. if I have a portrait aspect image, and I apply a preset with a grad, it applies the effect running L to R (i.e. the wrong axis) instead of top to bottom. 

Only workaround I have at the moment is to apply then manually change the grad positions and angles - but this is then defeating the purpose of having a preset in the first place.

I observe the same thing.

Interestingly, copy/paste and sync of develop settings work correctly.

The funny thing is that not too long ago -when this problem did not occur- some people were complaining that the grad did not rotate! They felt it should... :)
