Hi. We have ability to copy/paste image settings from one picture to another for a while now. On Android mobile app, there is option for it in a menu, on PC this menu is missing but keyboard shortcuts works the same way. On the other hand, on the Android version for tablets, there is none. Copy/paste is not present in any menu (or somewhere where I did not find it) and also there is no keyboard on a tablet. As a result there is not possibility for me to copy/paste settings on the tablet version of Lightroom CC.

dwbmb, I am seeing Copy Settings/Paste Settings in my Android Tablet's menu. Make sure you are in Edit mode by tapping the edit icon then hit the vertical three-dot menue to expose Copy/Paste Settings.

Hi Rikk.

I am sorry but there are no other modes on your Android tablet version, there is only edit mode. With copy/paste settings missing in three dots menu.




Maybe there is huge UI difference between Phone, PC and this tablet version and thus I cannot find it, so please help me out. Maybe by picture walkthrough could help?

Tap the slider button, directly under the ... menu, then copy/paste will appear in the ... menu. Those top 5 buttons are edit modes. (For reference, the bottom two buttons are rating mode and info mode.)

Confirmed.

So it is not missing, but hidden due to UI inconsistency between devices.

On the same app on phone, there is drop down menu on the upper left to choose modes (edit review and info). On the same app on the tablet there are two buttons on the bottom right but only for review and info. Edit mode is automatic when you start editing in "default view".

Here it looks like edit mode but you are not in edit mode really unless you click on some edit tool. On the phone you have to be in edit mode already to even see those tools.
