1) if in Develop mode, you create a set of custom settings for the photo you are editing. Then you choose on the next photo in line from the Settings menu in Develop Mode: "Paste Settings from Previous" and the settings get applied. You now decide you don't like the photo and delete and the next photo in line appears. Why does this feature still appear as "Paste Settings from Previous" when viewing this 3rd photo? It doesn't work in this scenario and should be grayed out or do as it says "Paste Settings From Previous". Not efficient programming.
2)After you have cropped a RAW photo, you are unable to select under View then View Options a choice for selecting "Original Dimensions" in either Loupe 1 or Loupe 2. Most confusing as as you are never sure if you are working with the 'real RAW" file or a JPG cropped image. Displaying the original image dimensions is key. The only way to get around this is to go back to Library mode and under MetaData / EXIF I can the see dimensions. This is a hassle and it should be an option as I choose CTRL+I and toggle through Loupe 1 or 2
3)When in develop mode, You are unable to Rename a photo. An extra two steps are needed. Go back to Library, hit F2 and rename, then go back to Develop. Why not rename in either mode?
4)In all PC applications such as ACDSee, Paint Shop Pro and many others over the past 22 years since I've personally been doing photo editing, why is it we are forced to IMPORT? Why is newly created folder not ready for immediate use? Each time I dump RAWs or JPG's onto the PC I can't just go to the folder, an import is mandatory. No other photo application does this other than Adobe.
As you can see from all of the above, much wasted time is necessary to use this application. This boils down to user unfriendly, most proprietary and non conforming.
