Camera Raw 11.4: No longer allows batch application of automatic adjustments

Camera Raw 11.4 no longer allows batch application of automatic adjustments.  In all previous versions, if you selected multiple files and clicked "Auto" on the Basic Adjustments tab, each of the files would have automatic adjustments applied to the image.  Now, only the image whose thumbnail has a blue outline gets adjusted.  This means I have to apply automatic adjustments file by file instead of in a batch.  This becomes a big waste of time very quickly.  Please restore the old behavior.  In fact, I would call the new behavior a bug.

I don't understand why tool behaviour is changing? It makes no sense. Add a slider yes, but don't change the way old ones used to work! The same goes for the one I've listed as a problem with syncing the crop. 

The whole idea of being able to select more than one is to be able to apply that effect to multiple images....

I cant duplicate this problem, if I open multiple RAW files I can select them all and adjustments are made to them all. Or I can select one and adjust one and then use Sync settings to apply to others

As per the actual subject of the problem, I think he's talking about when you click auto. Individual settings across multiple images are adjusted, clicking the auto definitely does not apply on multiple images.

OK, I understand, actually AUTO does not work on a group of files selected.
To control, I did the test on the same RAW but in LR Classic and AUTO mode works.
 
 So bug affirmed for CameraRaw interface.

We are still waiting for this fix. This is costing my many hours a day of additional manual processing!
