After today's Lightroom update copy/paste settings from one image to another doesn't work correctly at my Lightroom. It just pastes some random settings, with always contrast minus 30 something. Color temperature - different as well. Some other settings such as curve copy fine. Checked copy preferences - all checkboxes are selected. Has anyone experienced same after updating?

Thank you for the info.

Is the image from which you are copying using an auto-White Balance or Auto (exposure and color)? 

Can you show me a screen grab of your Light panel for the copied image and a before and after of your Light Panel for the pasted image?

If you mean auto setting in Lightroom, then no, I don't use it. Here are pictures attached, where is 1 - picture I copy settings from, 2 - picture I copy settings to (all default), 3 - result. What you are right about, and that's what I've just noticed, that it indeed looks like Auto setting switched on. If I try to apply Auto setting on this particular photo it gives quite the same result. But the fact is I never used auto setting neither I didn't apply it on any photo intentionally.

I would agree in your source image that Auto seems to be turned off. I would agree that in your destination image - after edit Auto seems to be turned off.  Does this happen every single time you copy and then paste settings?  Does it happen for a Paste to 1 image vs a Paste to a group of images?

No it doesn't happen all the time. I didn't figure out when does it exactly happen, but it looks like this: I adjust first photo, copy its settings to a second one - it's ok, then once again to the next one - whoops, settings are wrong. When I'm trying to work with next photo form the default settings again and copy it to the next one sometimes it copies fine, but sometimes no. I didn't realise why could it happen at all. Maybe some particular setting which I adjust causes it, but for me it just seems random.
For group images same problem exists.

Mikhail, are you still having difficulties with the group pasted settings?

Problem still exists with single photos, I was doing some editing yesterday and it was still like this. Haven't tried group photos yet, but seems like as the app wasn't updated since then, I guess the problem still exists with group settings as well. Found a temporary cure though. If you found, that pasted settings are wrong, you have to go back to that photo you copied it from and then press Auto button in light section to switch it on, and switch off back (the button works laggy though, you have to wait some seconds till the button becomes available). After these steps if you copy settings again, they will past correctly. But this is very annoying in fact. It takes so much time to get the job done now.
