Is this intentional? Why disable for one and not the other? All the issues we're having with hover applies to both!

I’m not sure I understand the problem. Profiles are chosen by activating the profile browser. If hover did not show the effect of the profile, how else would you see which one you like. From the tiny thumbnails? By applying them one by one?

When the Profile browser is shown, you can press down the Option/Alt modifier key to temporarily turn off the profile preview in the loupe. This allows you to do a quick before/after comparison without moving the mouse.

Johan, yes, just read that thanks. And i doubt many people complained specifically about Presets because they don't make the distinction between the two...

Only prerelease testers and people who have read the Profile SDK understand the difference.

Which key on windows? ALT? And where should the mouse hover then? Seems not to work for me

Press the Alt-key while you move your mouse over the thumbnails of the profiles. Your main window should not update with that profile now.

now i see my error. I meant it's working with presets that way, not profiles. It would still be nice to have a toggle or shortcut key to have the same effect when hovering over presets. Eg to have disabled full preview in setting by default, but be able to preview them quickly by pressing Alt key or something else in development module
