Why does color samplers created inside Cameraraw plugin just desapear when the image is edited again on cameraraw plugin?

I want to keep my color samplers. This is so logical to be on the core of the plugin, that I can't imagine why is not.

On CS6 and CC !

Would be very useful to people “embedding” raws in Smart Objects who may go back and forth in ACR often to edit and need to retain the samplers. Plus they stick in Lightroom and Photoshop proper, so the behavior should continue to ACR as well.

Actually I had a brain fart and the sampler’s are not sticky in Lightroom (and should be). But that’s another request for another time.

Ideally ACR/LR/Photoshop would all behave the same; same number of samplers, sticky, etc. We have the ability to see 9 sampler’s in ACR (not sticky) but only four in Photoshop (sticky). Photoshop needs 5 more, LR needs 9 more etc.

On Photoshop CC2014, there is the new ability to add 10 samplers at most.

So there is, awesome. How’d I miss that. OK, more justifications for LR to match and for ACR to be sticky.

Could this be done for CC 2015?

Persistent Color samplers from ACR to photoshop
Unfortunately, CC2015 and the last ACR 9.3.1 update still didn't make this simple thing happen.

Just to add some more pressure on your cameraraw product manager about this.
I cannot understand how far way Adobe is from the cloud.
Adobe uses only 10% of what is really a cloud.

If a photoshop product manager can't work together with a cameraraw product manager, a true cloud will never exists in Adobe and it will always seams that Adobe is tricking us, the clients.

I really understand what it means to make the teams work together and to get a product manager to be able to get closer to the client reality. I've tried that all my life and it is a never ending issue. But some times there is a win here and there.

I really appreciate any survey that, time to time, Adobe ask us to fill in, but after each survey there is never any information regarding costumers needs/expectations. Any survey must be publish only if it will not create more distance from the customers. That's what is happening. For example, Adobe puts as priority some photoshop features that a minority of costumers will not even use (as Fuse for example), instead of really debug many minor bugs still exists at UI bridge since pre-cloud era.

You have great guys there, like James Lockman (one of the only guys that knows how to communicate with clients), but even him doesn't know what to respond to this.
