Hello Techies,

Before the silly Mavericks update (and i think the , when I right clicked on a CRT format image in the filmstrip and select Develop settings > Copy Settings and continue to paste these settings on to the next untouched CRT format file, the changes would take less than 4 seconds to pop up on to the big picture (above the filmstrip.)

Now, the changes are not displayed until i paste the settings, click on the big image above the filmstrip and wait for it to load in the small magnifying square...
Once it loads (after several seconds), the entire picture receives the settings update and is now looking as it should after the refined settings.

On my super fast machine I never experienced such lag on Mountain Lion...

A bug that follows this bug is that once I open this recently retuned image in Camera Raw, and I toggle the Preview Tick box (on the top right hand side) the image does not switch back to the original image - the one captured by the camera).

It only displays changes that have taken place after the initial pasted settings through the Develop Settings.

So basically Camera Raw opens the image (recently retuned via settings copied from another image via Develop Settings> paste settings) and accepts the current (tweaked) settings as the default original settings...even though the sliders are all custom adjusted as per the settings of the other image.

When I switch between preview and no preview in Camera Raw, there is no change, until i further adjust a setting... then, only that secondary adjustment is recognised by the preview check box as an adjustment.

Regarding your second bug description ("A bug that follows this bug ...") that is actually the designed behavior of ACR (has been this way for several years). Namely, the Preview checkbox toggles between (a) the state associated with the image when the image was opened in the ACR dialog, and (b) the current state.

So, if you open an image into the ACR dialog and make no changes to sliders, then toggling the Preview box will do nothing.

To be clear: The Preview does NOT toggle between the current state and the "no settings" state. It only toggles between the current state and the state of the image when you opened it into the ACR dialog (current ACR session).
