LIGHTROOM - Exposure dropper

Please add a dropper to set exposure at a certain value. i,e middle gray or say 63% gray, similar to the white balance dropper. This would speed workflow up so much, thanks :)

Did you know you can click on Exposure, then place the mouse cursor over the area you would propose to "eye-dropper"  and us the [Arrow] keys to adjust up and down, while reading the percentage value of RGB directly below the histogram? Not what you are asking for but would give you the same result.

Exactly Rikk. So what we're asking is for LR to use those numbers, store them as a global and apply changes to achieve the same numbers on a sample. Something that would save time rather than take even more time.

Hey Rikk, thanks yes I did know that, however its not that I want to know the value its for speed of editing. This would be of no use to someone working in a studio where you can gail everything in but for photojournalism or event based work it would potentially be amazing, for me at least :)
