Lightroom Classic: When will sync auto upright be fixed ?

Hi,

I do a lot of photography with country lodges where uprights are vital. In a shoot i may edit 300-400 shots and the ability to use sync to automatically apply Transform auto uprights is huge to me.

For some reason this no longer works properly. 

Now when i try and sync apply this to several images it opts for the 'update' and not 'upright' - this usually causes the verticals to be wrong or badly wrong.

I'm using version 8.3.1 on Windows 10.

Is this a known bug or is there a fix to save me having to manually apply this on every image, even a keyboard shortcut would help for now !!

TIA,
Mike.

Make sure you only sync the upright mode, not the other two options.

Thanks Johan - sadly that still reverts to 'update' not 'upright'. I tried both options independently

Are you applying any other settings in the 'Synchronize Settings' selector such as Lens Corrections? This will cause the synced files to show the 'Update' warning.

OK Further findings - if i just sync 'upright mode' and nothing else it works. If i try and sync lens corrections at the say time this causes it to apply update not upright. 
 
So ultimately there is a problem still as both these settings need changing but apparently can't be synced together. If i sync lens correction after the upright mode sync it also changes it to update.

This is poor..... :(

Synchronize settings is applying Lens Corrections BEFORE Transform corrections. Since almost every other setting is affected by Lens Corrections it should be one of the first settings to be applied. I'd call this a bug as well. Adobe should be able to correct this by changing the order in which Transform corrections is applied in Synchronize Settings. The best workaround for now is as Johan has explained.

Thanks Both - will see if the workaround does the trick, presume it will slow the import process a tad but worth it.  Does anyone from Lightroom actually step in and help customers ??
