LIGHTROOM: Comparing snapshots in Develop mode

In the develop module I'd like to be able to scroll through my snapshots after selecting the L key ( white screen) with the up and down arrow keys. It would be a more efficient way to compare versions. Currently with a white screen (L) you have to guess and click to select the different versions. It can be done, but it's a pain.

I pull left panel onto partially dimmed monitor, with Lr5's full-screen view on the other, so snapshots are more easily accessible/comparable whilst viewing at max size. Not a perfect solution, but not bad either..

I sometimes do the same thing, and you are right, it is better than nothing. Still wish
they could come up with the option I'm suggesting. Thanks.

I hear ya. Another option is SnapToCopy, which converts snapshots to virtual copies, then loads them into survey view or 2-at-a-time compare view. Again, not a substitute, but may be worth considering..
