LIGHTROOM: Allow for "Copy Settings" profiles

When copying settings to paste to other images, each check box must be individually selected for each copy process. However, if I only want to copy one setting across all images, I have to reset all the other check boxes the next time I choose to copy more settings.

If Lr allowed for copy setting profiles, then I could simply create multiple combinations of checked boxes as I needed - and it would take only a second to reset as necessary.

Thank you

So much this! I end up not using the copy feature for cropping because it's always too much work to recheck all the other boxes the next time I want to paste settings. My mix of settings for lighting and color take so many boxes, I have to keep that set constantly active. 

I don't know about others, but for me, lots of tiny checkboxes have a negative ergonomic impact on my hand and wrist health. I need to use Lightroom with just the keyboard for sustained use, and most things work great! The Copy Settings window is an annoying exception. 

I need separate sets/profiles/presets, each controlling which boxes are checked in the "Copy Settings" dialog. I think a lot of users would find it useful if they are using "Copy Settings" a lot. 

The sets should probably be a pulldown menu in the "Copy Settings" dialog, like the one in the "Adjustment Brush" panel with presets. 

While we're at it, why not make "Copy Settings" look dark like the rest of Lightroom
