Lightroom: Disable Hover Presets not working for Profiles

Is this intentional? Why disable for one and not the other? All the issues we're having with hover applies to both!

I’m not sure I understand the problem. Profiles are chosen by activating the profile browser. If hover did not show the effect of the profile, how else would you see which one you like. From the tiny thumbnails? By applying them one by one?

Same as presets... click, not hover.

Click is slower than hover and applies the profile rather than just previews it. I see no advantage of that over hover, on the contrary.

and when you want to compare two profiles which aren't adjacent?

Then I can still click them. That also works. The very short delay caused by hovering over another one doesn't bother me.

Well, that's fine for you, but the point of adding the Pref was to disable hover, not disable half of hovers.

The preference is clear: it disables hover of presets. And that is what people complained about. I haven't seen many complaints about hovering profiles, but I'm sure there was at least one... :)

Anyway, you made your point. It's up to Adobe to decide whether they do something about this too, not me.

BTW, this was just posted in another thread:

When the Profile browser is shown, you can press down the Option/Alt modifier key to temporarily turn off the profile preview in the loupe. This allows you to do a quick before/after comparison without moving the mouse.

This should also do what you want when comparing profiles.

Johan, yes, just read that thanks. And i doubt many people complained specifically about Presets because they don't make the distinction between the two...

Only prerelease testers and people who have read the Profile SDK understand the difference.

Which key on windows? ALT? And where should the mouse hover then? Seems not to work for me

Press the Alt-key while you move your mouse over the thumbnails of the profiles. Your main window should not update with that profile now.

now i see my error. I meant it's working with presets that way, not profiles. It would still be nice to have a toggle or shortcut key to have the same effect when hovering over presets. Eg to have disabled full preview in setting by default, but be able to preview them quickly by pressing Alt key or something else in development module
