I'm reporting a bug in LR5 & LR CC regarding not applying a develop.settings when paste settings on new raw file.

Windows 7 x64, 16GB RAM, SSD drives
This happens in LR5 and the latest LR CC
Nikon D800 NEF files (could be a reason of a bug - large RAWs)
does not happen each time, but randomly

CTRL+SHIFT+C - copy settings
move forward one image
CTRL+SHIFT+V - paste settings
new line "Paste Settings" is created in History panel, but no settings are applied (all develop values remains same like before paste)
image is not updated
when I press hotkeys for UNDO+REDO, settings are copyied and image is updated to the new develop settings correctly

So, this means there is a 100% bug regarding this issue, because LR register action "paste settings" in History panel, but do not paste settings for real.

Please try to use one webpage used for user log in with Adobe ID, as it is really pain to log in multiple times with Adobe ID when accessing your multiple websites. Same as do Google with Google ID - I'm logging just once for all Google websites.

Also, it is not clear, where is the correct place to report bugs of LR. Please Adobe, add Bug report form to Lightroom app, it will be the best for customer feedback.

I'm able to cooperate with your developers to remove this bug. Just contact me by email.

Thank you!

Have some idea about bug - may be when I move to the new image, the algorithm is rendering image preview and during this period it does not notice pasting new settings, but it does put record to the History Log Panel and there are also changes on individual panels like "Basic", "Tone Curve", etc. May be this is related to huge RAWs like those coming from D800 and some state of photo to be displayed (it does not have rendered image preview or so).

So verify, if you did check changes of settings between starting displaying a photo and finished rendering of photo preview. If something related to development of photo was modified during this period, re-render image preview.
