Add Distortion correction slider to Transform Panel. It would be useful when doing lens corrections. Think about it, please.

I’m not sure what you are asking for. Distortion correction is part of lens corrections, not of transform. There already is a slider in the Lens Corrections pane, so you can increase or decrease the effect of lens profiles. And there is manual correction slider.

I mean when I'm doing a correction to my wide angle lens I'm using transform panel (vertical transform etc.) but with doing that I need to correct distortion (when I do vertical transform of wide angle lens distortion is more visible) - I need to go up to lens correction panel - do the distortion correction and sometimes need to go down again to transform panel. I think It would by useful to have distortion slider in transform panel too (I don't mean to delete it from lens correction panel - only option to have it in transform panel too).

I understand. Personally I don’t think that it would be a good idea to duplicate functionality.

It would be great to have option to move sliders like in capture one and build your own panels. But otherwise lightroom rulz ;)

Agreed. A 'favorite sliders' panel would be nice.

Adobe recommends applying Lens Corrections before using the Transform panel. Lens Correction is for optical anomalies, and Transform is for scene distortion. Are you confusing the two ?
